NEW JERSEY TRIP AND FALL LAWYER
Premises liability is the area of law that requires a New Jersey landowner, usually a store owner, to safeguard others on the premises from dangerous or hazardous conditions that could result in injury. In New Jersey, all commercial property and business owners must provide a safe environment for the people on their property.

For premises liability to apply, there must be negligence or some other wrongful act by the commercial landowner or some entity using the property, such as a property management company. It is important to remember that a business is not automatically responsible for an injury simply because an accident occurred on the premises. The business responsible for maintaining the premises may only be liable if there was a wrongful act, such as a failure to inspect the premises or a failure to correct a hazardous condition that the landowner knew about.
Some common premises liability cases involve:
- Grocery store negligence – usually a failure to clean up a slippery substance
- Hazardous sidewalks – a defect in the sidewalk
- Dangerous stairs or staircases – due to no railing
- Slip & fall accidents
- Escalator malfunctions
- Snow & ice accidents
- Negligent security
- Dog or animal attacks
- Insufficient lighting – many times this occurs in a stairwell
- Construction site negligence
- Shopping Center negligence
- Parking lot hazards
- Amusement park accidents
- Swimming pool negligence
- Faulty electrical wiring
- Burn hazards – such as an unprotected radiator

In any case, the Sloan Law Firm looks to recover fair and just compensation for those injured through no fault of their own.

Premises liability cases usually involve “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” accidents. Slip and fall accident cases are complex and it is important that anyone injured in this manner consult a New Jersey slip and fall lawyer. The first question when examining a New Jersey slip and fall lawyer usually asks about is the location of the accident. The reason why this is important is because it is much easier to prove a negligence against a commercial landowner than it is to prove against a residential landowner in New Jersey. Anyone examining a court docket could immediately determine that many cases are against commercial entities such as:
• Big-box stores
• Home improvement stores
• Grocery stores
• Apartment complexes
• Business complexes
New Jersey premises liability law requires big-box stores, home improvement stores, grocery stores, apartment complexes, business complexes and other commercial landowners to repair or to prevent conditions that could result in someone being hurt. This includes the sidewalks surrounding the property. Failure to do so may result in the commercial landowner being held liable for injuries.
In order to prove that a commercial entity is negligent, an injured victim generally must prove that there was a dangerous or hazardous condition on the premises and that the commercial landowner had knowledge of it. This is typically done with the help of an expert. Experts are permitted to give opinions when testifying in court.
Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
• Snow and ice accidents
• Re-freezing incidents
• Debris such as wet leaves and garbage
• Indoor paint on an outdoor surface
• Non-slip resistant flooring
• No railing
