Injuries from alleged fall lead to premises liability claim

The majority of accidents are unpreventable and definitely unexpected. However, some accidents can be prevented just by taking a few basic precautions. Most businesses and establishments in the state of New Jersey are safe and inviting. Unfortunately, there will always be property owners that fail to take the necessary precautions to prevent accidents from occurring to visitors and patrons. What can be done when visitors and patrons suffer injury due to neglect and unsafe conditions on a property?

A woman in another state has filed a premises liability claim after she allegedly fell in the parking lot of a popular restaurant chain. The woman claims she fell and suffered injuries due to an almost unnoticeable step down from the sidewalk to the parking lot. There were no warnings of the elevation change and the alleged hazard was very subtle and not out in the open, the lawsuit claims.

The woman accuses the defendant of negligence by failing to keep its property appropriately maintained and safe. According to the plaintiff, her injuries not only caused physical pain, but emotional and mental anguish as well. The plaintiff seeks punitive and compensatory damages for her alleged pain and suffering.

Injuries suffered in an accident such as this can lead to great financial loss due to medical expenses and time away from work. Business and property owners across the United States have a duty and obligation to keep properties properly maintained and free of hazards. New Jersey residents who have been injured due to the negligence of property owners could benefit by seeking the assistance of an experienced attorney. A successful lawsuit could provide much-needed financial relief for victims.
