A property owner has the obligation of ensuring that his or her land(s), building(s), and surrounding structures within the premises are safe for authorized visitors. If the authorized individual sustains an injury from an accident within or around the property, the owner will be held responsible for the injuries. It is important to note that these situations are rarely as simple as they seem. You are encouraged to contact Team Law’s Newark personal injury lawyers as we specialize in New Jersey premises liability lawsuits.
Involved In A Premises Liability Case And Have Questions? We Can Help, Tell Us What Happened.
Premises liability is a legal concept that points to a property owner’s potential legal responsibility for any injuries their visitors sustained due to unsafe conditions within the premises. Common premises liability causes include excessively walkways, shoddy materials, poor construction of a certain structure, defective electrical wiring, building code violations, and more.
Wait, there’s more to this. If an individual was injured on someone’s property, it does not automatically mean that the property owner was negligent. Unsafe conditions within the premises do not point to negligence as well. The individual pursuing a premises liability lawsuit must prove that the property owner had prior knowledge of those unsafe conditions but still failed to remedy the situation in time.
$318 Thousand Verdict + Lifetime Medical Benefits
The injured 44 year-old worker was employed as a pipe maintenance employee in a factory when a clamp burst and he was sprayed with scalding water, resulting in second and third degree burns over 75% of his body, in addition to post-accident emotional injuries related to both flashbacks of the accident and residual scarring from the burns. Team Law litigation attorneys were able to couple the injuries sustained in the burn accident with previous injuries sustained by the injured worker to involve the New Jersey Second Injury Fund, and the burn victim was found totally and permanently disabled with an award of $319,000 for the first 8 years of disability, plus the opportunity to collect ongoing cash benefits in the future should his inability to return to work continue. The injured employee was also entitled to lifetime medical benefits for the injuries sustained in the accident as part of the agreement resolving the case.
