Owners of businesses and personal property in New Jersey are required to take reasonable measures to ensure that visitors on their premises are safe from injury or death caused by dangerous conditions. Property owners are liable for compensating injured parties if their property is found to be unsafe by design or because of a temporary hazard that was not corrected, removed or protected from public access.
Unfortunately, property owners often put costs and profits ahead of public safety. Hazardous conditions such as unsafe exposed electrical equipment, crumbling ceilings and insufficient lighting for security are not sufficiently addressed, in the hopes that no one will be hurt.
Some examples of premises liability claims may include:
