For example, if you fell in a stairwell at an industrial site due to a lack of handrails and broke your leg, you may be awarded damages through a premises liability lawsuit for your injuries.
When you are lawfully present on any public or private property, you have the right to expect that the property will be reasonably safe. In the state of New Jersey, premises liability laws allow individuals to take legal action against property owners who fail to maintain a safe environment for visitors.
It is a property owner’s responsibility to repair any dangerous conditions or to warn visitors of unsafe conditions. If serious injuries are sustained while on someone else’s property due to preexisting and concealed dangerous conditions, the property owner may be held accountable for their failure to correct known hazards.
If you were injured due to a dangerous defect in someone’s premises and the person responsible for the property failed to correct the problem or to warn you about it, you may be able to recover monetary compensation for your injuries.
