Alleged injuries in restaurant lead to premises liability claim

Property and business owners in New Jersey and across the country have a duty to keep their properties and establishments safe for all visitors. Failure to adequately maintain property and eliminate hazards can create an unsafe environment that may contribute to injuries to those lawfully on the property. Such things as inadequate lighting, water leaks and tools left lying on the floor from routine maintenance are just a few examples of potentially dangerous hazards. A woman in another state was allegedly injured due to unsafe conditions when visiting a popular restaurant, and she has filed a premises liability claim.

The plaintiff was visiting the restaurant and made a trip to the restroom, the lawsuit says. The restroom is located near the bar and kitchen area of the restaurant. The plaintiff claims that as she was leaving the restroom she encountered hazards that caused her to be injured.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff's injuries included a knee contusion as well as other injuries to her left leg. She accuses the restaurant owners of negligence by failing to safely maintain the premises and failing to provide safe entry and exit. The plaintiff seeks damages of around $50,000 in the suit.

Although most stores and businesses in the state of New Jersey are safe, negligent maintenance or hazardous conditions on a property can result in accidents and injuries to visitors. When dangerous conditions on a property contribute to accidents such as this, the property owner(s) can be held responsible through a premises liability claim. A successful claim could result in a monetary award that could help victims cover medical expenses and relieve other financial losses.
