Premises liability lawyers who stand for you after your injury
All property owners have certain legal obligations to keep their premises safe for both public and private use. When a property owner fails to fulfill their duty and someone is injured as a result, that property owner is then liable.
There are many factors to consider in a premises liability case in Summit, Westfield, or anywhere else in New Jersey. Our Summit injury attorneys, unlike other slip & fall or back injury lawyers who may not thoroughly evaluate complicated situations, take the following into consideration when devising a strategy to represent you:
- Reason for being on the property. Defense attorneys are likely to question why you were on the property. If they can prove that you were there without invitation or consent of the owner, then your claim has a lesser chance of succeeding. We work with you to provide evidence to show that you had a legitimate reason to be on the property.
- Property conditions. The manner in which you hurt yourself is important. Your attorneys must be able to prove that your injury was a direct result of potentially hazardous property conditions, such as poor lighting, cracked pavement, aged staircases, crumbling walls or ceilings, icy sidewalks, and so on. Expert witnesses may be essential to prove that there was a hazardous condition.
- Fault. Proving negligence is paramount in a premises liability case. If you cannot prove liability on the part of the property owner, then you have no grounds for a premises liability suit. In some cases, both parties may be at fault, so we must demonstrate that the property owner is responsible for a larger percentage of the fault in the incident. The amount of compensation you receive depends on the fault percentages. We make sure that your percentage is as small as possible to maximize the compensation you may receive.
