NEW JERSEY PREMISES LIABILITY ATTORNEYS HOLD NEGLIGENT PROPERTY OWNERS RESPONSIBLE
RESPECTED LEGAL REPRESENTATION FOR VICTIMS OF SLIP-AND-FALL OR TRIP-AND-FALL INJURIES IN NEW JERSEY AND NEW YORK
Owners of businesses that accommodate the pubic have a legal responsibility to keep their properties safe. An owner who neglects this duty is liable for any accidents or injuries the dangerous conditions cause. Accident victims in New Jersey or Manhattan can rely on attorney Anthony J. Pope, who has extensive experience holding property owners accountable. Our firm helps you obtain the compensation you need — and are entitled — to recover from your physical, emotional and financial injuries.
WHAT IS A PREMISES LIABILITY CLAIM?
In stores or restaurants, on public streets, or outside private homes, premises liability injuries occur in many forms. Situations that commonly lead to injury include:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Failure to clear ice or snow
- Dangerous structural design
- Inadequate maintenance
- Negligent or insufficient security
- Bites or attacks by unrestrained animals
The most common type of premises liability accident is the slip-and-fall injury. Although the term does not sound serious, sudden falls onto hard surfaces can cause fractures, concussions, and spinal, neck and brain injuries. Anthony J. Pope is a tenacious advocate for injury victims in New Jersey and New York. We hold property owners accountable for their negligence, taking the burden of legal action off your shoulders so you can heal.
LIABILITY IN NEW JERSEY FOR LAX SECURITY THAT AIDS AND ABETS CRIME
Business owners are liable for more than accidents. When the owner of a parking garage, ATM kiosk or other facility that patrons access at night fails to provide adequate security, that owner may be liable in civil court for robberies and other violent crimes that the lack of security facilitates. One of Anthony J. Pope’s landmark victories involved just such a scenario. Our relentlessly aggressive representation secured a multimillion-dollar compensation award for a victim of premises liability gun violence.
ACT QUICKLY FOLLOWING AN ACCIDENT ON SOMEONE ELSE’S PROPERTY
- Preserving evidence is vital after an accident. This includes:
- Your shoes (if you had a slip-and-fall injury)
- Names and contact information of witnesses
- Photos of the unsafe condition
- Medical records
It’s important to document as much as possible to help your personal injury attorney prove liability. While our firm uses skilled investigators to examine every facet of your slip-and-fall accident or dog bite, in time, the property owner alters the conditions that caused your injury or allowed the animal attack.
