Monmouth County Unsafe Conditions Attorney
Red Bank, NJ Personal Injury Lawyers Help Those Who Have Been Injured due to Property Owner Negligence
New Jersey property owners are required to ensure the safety of visitors to their properties. While accidents do happen, if a serious injury occurred due to a problem that the property owner was aware of but did not rectify, that property owner can be held accountable for negligence.
At the law firm of Drazin and Warshaw, P.C., our New Jersey personal injury lawyers deal with unsafe conditions cases on a regular basis. We know what to look for and how to determine whether a property owner was aware of the issue and failed to fix it. We pursue maximum compensation for the harm done to our clients. Because of our firm’s more than 70 years of experience in Monmouth County, Union County and elsewhere in New Jersey, we have a long track record of success and a sizable list of verdicts and settlements to our credit.
One of our firm’s lead attorneys, Dennis A. Drazin, wrote the book on premises liability, including unsafe conditions. (Drazin, Dennis A. New Jersey Premises Liability New Jersey: Gann Law Books, 2012-2013) We are well known for only bringing legitimate liability claims, which means the defense takes our cases very seriously. We fight the giants because we believe it is necessary to help prevent these issues from happening to others in the future. If we feel that our clients are being treated unfairly, we will take their cases to court.
Unsafe Conditions and the Injuries They Cause
An unsafe condition exists when an obstacle, or issue, that might cause injury arises. A property owner is liable for harm to visitors if the condition is not rectified immediately in some way. This can be anything from fixing the problem right away to putting up barricades or warning signs until the problem can be fixed. While this may seem like a “no-brainer,” many property owners fail to do either of these things. Unfortunately, the resultant injuries can be severe, even permanently life-changing.
Common unsafe conditions include:
- Unsecured rugs or carpet
- Unsafe stairs
- Objects falling on visitors
- Inadequate lighting
- Potholes in parking lots
- Uneven sidewalks
- Poorly marked emergency exits
- Inadequate security
Our lawyers examine all of the evidence, including interviewing witnesses and reviewing any available security footage from cameras in the surrounding area. We work with safety experts to see if a condition could have been rectified quickly or if was poorly repaired and thus caused the same problem to reoccur. We pursue all avenues of compensation on your behalf.
