What Types of New Jersey Premises Liability Claims Does Omni Injury & Accident Law Handle?

Premises liability accidents refer to incidents where individuals are injured or harmed while on someone else’s property due to unsafe conditions or negligence by the property owner or manager.

At Omni Injury & Accident Law, our skilled premises liability attorneys in Newark, New Jersey, handle all types of these cases, including, but not limited to:

  • Inadequate Maintenance

Property owners are responsible for maintaining their premises reasonably and safely. Failure to repair or address hazards such as broken handrails, malfunctioning doors, leaky roofs, or deteriorating infrastructure can lead to accidents and injuries.

  • Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Slip-and-fall accidents occur when individuals slip, trip, or fall on a wet, uneven, slippery, or otherwise hazardous surface. Common causes include wet floors, icy sidewalks, uneven pavement, loose rugs or carpets, and debris or objects left in walkways.

  • Trip and Fall Accidents

Similar to slip-and-fall accidents, trip-and-fall accidents occur when individuals trip over obstacles, hazards, or uneven surfaces. Examples include cracked sidewalks, potholes, uneven steps or thresholds, and cluttered walkways.

  • Falling Objects

Property owners have a duty to secure objects and prevent them from falling and injuring visitors. This includes shelves, fixtures, signage, construction materials, and other items that may risk falling.

  • Negligent Security

Property owners have a duty to provide adequate security measures to protect visitors from foreseeable harm caused by criminal activity. Negligent security claims may arise if a property owner fails to implement proper lighting, surveillance cameras, locks, or security personnel, leading to assaults, robberies, or other crimes on the premises.

  • Dog Bites

New Jersey’s dog bite statute is a “strict liability” statute. This makes the dog’s owner liable for any dog bite injuries when the person bitten is in a private place or lawfully in a public place, regardless of any prior indications of the dog’s viciousness or the owners’ knowledge of any former viciousness, even if they used reasonable care to restrain the dog or to protect or warn others.

  • Swimming Pool Accidents

Property owners with swimming pools have a duty to maintain a safe environment and implement appropriate safety measures to prevent drownings and injuries. Accidents may occur due to a lack of fencing, inadequate supervision, slippery surfaces, or defective pool equipment.

  • Elevator and Escalator Accidents

Property owners are responsible for ensuring that elevators and escalators on their premises are properly maintained and inspected for safety. Accidents may occur due to mechanical failures, improper maintenance, or defective components.

  • Fires and Burns

Property owners may be liable for injuries from fires or burns caused by faulty wiring, inadequate fire safety measures, flammable materials, or other hazards on the premises.

If you have been injured on private or public property because the New Jersey property owner or operator failed to maintain safe premises, contact our experienced premises liability attorneys in Newark today for a free consultation. We can help you understand your legal rights and options so you can make informed decisions about the direction of your case.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Premises Liability Accidents and Injuries in New Jersey?

In New Jersey, liability for premises liability accidents and injuries typically falls on the property owner, occupier, or manager responsible for maintaining the property and ensuring its safety for visitors. However, liability can vary depending on the circumstances of each incident.

To follow are some parties who may be held liable for premises liability accidents in New Jersey:

  • Property Owners

Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises reasonably safe and address known hazards or risks. This includes residential, commercial, and public property owners such as municipalities or government agencies.

  • Property Occupiers

In cases where a property is leased or rented, the occupier may be held liable for premises liability accidents if they have control over the condition of the premises and are responsible for maintenance and repairs.

  • Property Managers or Landlords

Property managers or landlords who have control over the maintenance and management of a property may be held liable for premises liability accidents if they fail to address hazards or dangerous conditions on the premises.

  • Business Operators

Businesses operating on premises must maintain a safe environment for customers, employees, and visitors. If they fail to address hazards such as spills, uneven floors, or inadequate lighting, they may be held liable for premises liability accidents.

  • Contractors and Maintenance Companies

In some cases, liability for premises liability accidents may extend to contractors or maintenance companies hired to work on the premises if their negligence contributes to the accident. For example, if a contractor fails to properly secure construction materials, leading to a trip and fall accident.

  • Third Parties

Third parties, not the property owner or occupier, may also be liable for premises liability accidents in certain situations. For instance, if a security company fails to provide adequate security measures, leading to an assault on the premises.
