Premises Liability Attorneys In New Jersey

Property owners and businesses have a legal obligation to keep their premises safe. When they’re negligent and fail to perform proper maintenance or repairs, innocent people can suffer serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been hurt at a business or on someone’s residential property, our premises liability lawyers at Krivitzky, Springer & Feldman can evaluate your case and advise you of your options for recovering compensation.

Our Attorneys Handle All Types of Premises Liability Cases

Our Jersey City premises liability lawyers have helped injured victims recover maximum compensation in personal injury claims involving:

Slip and fall accidents — Sliding on a wet floor in the grocery store, falling on defective stairs, stumbling on an uneven sidewalk, and slipping on ice and snow can lead to serious injuries, such as broken bones and back and neck problems, and even catastrophic injuries, including TBI. Whether you’ve been hurt at a private home or while shopping at a business, our lawyers can help.

Ceiling and roof collapse — Our premises liability lawyers represent people who have sustained injuries from pieces of ceiling or roof falling on them due to water damage, pipe leaks, negligent repairs, or other defects. We hold landlords, hotel owners, homeowners, construction companies, and other responsible parties accountable for their negligence.

Dog bites — If you’ve been bitten or attacked by a dog or another animal in New Jersey, the owner is financially responsible for your injuries and pain and suffering. Dog attacks can cause lacerations and scarring that require extensive plastic surgeries and can even result in permanent disfigurement or disability. When children are injured in a dog attack, the results can be tragic. Krivitzky, Springer & Feldman has provided dedicated legal counsel to dog bite victims and their families for more than 40 years.

Negligent security — When someone visits an apartment building, hotel, bar, parking lot, or any number of places, they rely on the property or business owner to keep them safe from harm. Failure to properly secure entrances, illuminate secluded areas, operate security cameras, and perform frequent security checks can make the premises vulnerable to criminal activity. If you’ve been hurt in an assault or accident caused by negligent or inadequate security, the property owner may be liable for your damages.

Proving Negligence Under New Jersey Premises Liability Law

In any premises liability case, you must prove negligence, which can be tough to do on your own. Our premises liability lawyers understand how to determine who is at fault, gather evidence, and build a case that shows how a property owner’s or business’ negligence led to your injuries. We handle all negotiations with insurance companies and are well-versed in the tactics they often use to minimize or deny claims. If a fair settlement can’t be reached, we won’t hesitate to fight for your rights in court.

Types Of Damages You May Recover In Premises Liability Claims

Our Jersey City premises liability lawyers understand how to accurately value your claim to ensure you get the full compensation to which you’re entitled. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to recover damages for:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of companionship and consortium

If you’ve lost a loved one in a slip and fall or another type of premises liability accident, you may be entitled to bring a wrongful death action against the negligent parties. If you’re hurt on the job and a property owner who’s not your employer is at fault for your injuries, a third-party liability claim may be appropriate in addition to your workers’ compensation claim.
