The High Cost of Injuries Caused by Unsafe Property Conditions in New Jersey
Most premises liability accidents happen suddenly, and few people are prepared to handle the consequences. Whether it is a broken hip or wrist caused by a fall on ice or snow, a puncture wound caused by a dog bite, or a concussion caused by a fall in an unsafe stairwell — accidents on private or public property can result in serious injuries.
These types of injuries usually cause significant pain and suffering, require medical treatment, and may even result in temporary or permanent disability. In addition to the physical pain and emotional suffering, injured persons have to struggle with the financial strain of paying unexpected medical bills — often after having lost wages because of their inability to work because of their injuries.

- Is a property owner responsible for injuries on his or her property?
Generally, yes. If the owner of a house, apartment building, condominium, office building, commercial property or construction site is negligent in keeping his or her property in a safe condition, he or she will be liable for injuries which result.
- What duty does a property owner have to prevent injuries to visitors?
It is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain safe property conditions, or at least warn people about any dangerous conditions that he or she caused, were aware of, or should have been aware of. That includes maintaining sidewalks, staircases and elevators, providing adequate security, ensuring floors are not slippery, and confining dogs that are prone to biting — or providing a warning about any of these potential dangers.
