Failure to maintain property leads to a premises liability claim

New Jersey residents should be able to visit businesses, shops and recreational facilities without worrying about hazards that can potentially cause harm them. Neglecting to maintain property can cause serious injury to those who visit. What can be done when a person suffers injury due to unsafe conditions on a property he or she is visiting? Business and property owners can be held legally responsible through a premises liability claim when the negligent failure to maintain property causes injury to visitors. A man in another state was allegedly injured due to negligence on a property he was visiting, and he has filed a lawsuit against the property owner.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff was walking outside the property near a handicap ramp and sidewalk. The man claims he tripped and fell due to walkways that had not been properly maintained. Allegedly, the plaintiff suffered substantial injury due to the fall.

The man claims he suffered injuries to his extremities, face, teeth, hips and back as well as an aggravation of a pre-existing conditions in his back and neck. The plaintiff accuses the defendant of failing to properly maintain the property and failing to maintain the walkways and/or common paved areas. The man seeks compensatory damages in the lawsuit.

Business and property owners have a legal obligation to maintain their facilities and keep their property safe for those lawfully on the property. New Jersey residents who suffer injuries due to hazards or the neglect of property owners can file premises liability lawsuits. A successful claim could result in much-needed compensation to cover medical expenses and other monetary losses accrued due to injuries.
