New Jersey Premises Liability Lawyer

Representing NJ clients injured on someone else’s property

Owners of businesses and private 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. If you are visiting someone else’s property and you sustain an injury because of the property owner’s negligence, you may have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit.

You are encouraged to schedule a consultation at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP. With offices in Edison, Red Bank, and Toms River, our New Jersey personal injury lawyers represent individuals in premises liability lawsuits and insurance claims throughout the state.

What is a premises liability lawsuit?

Under New Jersey law, persons injured because of a dangerous condition on a property, or who have lost a family member in an accident caused by a defect on the premises are entitled to seek full and fair compensation for their injuries and financial damages. Before you negotiate a settlement with the property owner or his or her insurance company, it is important that you understand your rights. Speaking to a skilled New Jersey premises liability lawyer about the legal options available is a good way to become informed and empowered to act.

Examples of premises liability accidents in NJ

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:

What damages are available in a premises liability lawsuit?

When you have sustained a serious injury because of someone else’s negligence, and you decide to pursue a premises liability lawsuit, there are several different types of financial damages available if you prevail including:

  • Medical expenses now and in the future related to the injury
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Diminished earning capacity because of the injury
  • Other additional losses from the accident

What is the time limit for a premises liability injury claim in New Jersey?

New Jersey law allows an injured person two years from the date of injury to file a lawsuit to pursue compensation from the responsible party. Once that two-year clock has expired, the court can refuse to hear your case, and you will have lost out on your chance to recover damages.

This strict, two-year statute of limitations means that it is imperative that you contact a qualified New Jersey premises liability attorney immediately so that we can begin gathering evidence and developing a strategy for your case.

I also WON lifelong FRIENDS!

"The list is LONG of the wonderful things that I can say about Barry, Maria (his assistant) & the rest of the folks that I had the HONOR of spending time with during my case. I brought my case to another lawyer that told me that I have no case, yet Barry was not only able to WIN, but he WON a substantial amount! Lawyers have awful reputations, but Barry defies every single one of them! Barry Eichen genuinely CARES about his clients!! NOTHING was too much to ask for – there was no such thing as too many phone calls! Without a doubt, I was in the BEST HANDS with Barry as my attorney! I not only WON my lawsuit, but I also WON lifelong FRIENDS!"

"I had a bad accident back in June of 2015. My dad knows Barry. I have to say he is a great person. I was unsatisfied with some things that were happening with a previous lawyer and he made sure everything was fixed and I was satisfied. My lawyer Edward McElroy is great he answers emails in a timely matter even on weekends. I know they probably used to get annoyed with me calling all the time Lol. But I was just curious to what is going on with my case. Nicole, Ed’s secretary is great. She always responds back to my emails in a timely matter as well and even checks up on things with me from time to time. Barry recently became my mother and cousins Lawyer do to a bad accident they were involved in as well. I would highly recommend this firm. Thanks guys 🙂"
