What is premises liability?

Contact Us

Property owners in New Jersey and Pennsylvania have the responsibility to maintain a safe premise that is free and clear of any hazards. If an individual becomes injured on someone else’s property, they may be able to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the owner of the property of which they were injured. The injured party will be required to prove that the property owner knew or should have reasonably known about the hazards that were present on their property and failed to fix them, which ultimately caused an individual to become injured.

In a successful personal injury lawsuit, the injured party can fulfill this burden of proof and recover both economic and noneconomic damages from the negligent party. These damages can help the injured party cover the cost of medical bills, current and future lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and more.

Some examples of property owner negligence include failure to shovel snow or remove ice in a timely manner after a winter storm, failure to make sure stairways have secure handrails, failure to make sure there is adequate lighting at night, among many other things.
