Premises Liability Lawyers
Business and property owners have the obligation to ensure that visitors on their premises – land, buildings, and surrounding structures – are safe. If an individual sustains an injury from an accident within or around the property, the owner could be liable for any injuries that occur. If you are injured on someone else’s property and sustain an injury due to the property owner’s negligence, you may have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit.
What is a Premises Liability Lawsuit?
Under New Jersey law, anyone injured because of a dangerous condition on a property, or who has lost a family member in an accident caused by a defect on the premises, is entitled to seek full and fair compensation for their injuries and financial damages. Common premises liability cases include trip hazards, spills and wet substances on the floor, damaged walkways, defective materials, poor construction, and more.
Before you negotiate a settlement with the property owner or their insurance company, it is important that you understand your rights. Speaking to a skilled personal injury attorney about the legal options available is a good way to become informed and empowered to act.

You Need An Experienced New Jersey Premises Liability Lawyer
According to the New Jersey Tort Claims Act (TCA), an injured person must provide a formal written notice to a public entity within 90 days of the accident, including:
- Name and address of claimant (you)
- Date, place, and circumstances of the incident
- A general description of your injury or losses suffered
- The amount of damages being claimed
If you’ve suffered injuries and need to take legal action against a public entity or employee, you must file a “Notice of Tort Claim” to protect your right to compensation. If you fail to include all the necessary information in your claim, you will be barred from recovering anything from the public entity or its employees.
From the start, we will help you obtain medical treatment and ensure your medical bills are paid through insurance. We work with doctors throughout New York and New Jersey who can provide medical treatment and improve your injuries and help with your recovery.
