New Jersey Premises Liability Attorney

What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability claims may be necessary when you are injured on another person’s property due to their failure to provide reasonably safe conditions. A premise can be anything from an apartment complex to a mall to a hospital to a public park.

When you are a customer, resident, or guest on these premises, you are owed a duty of care. That means if walkways are slippery, the lighting is inadequate, or structures are unstable, the property owner could be held liable for any accidents and injuries that occur.

If you have been injured as a result of an unsafe condition, speak with a New Jersey premises liability lawyer from our firm. Consultations are FREE and there is no fee unless we win.

Common Premises Liability Claims in NJ

Below are a few examples of premises liability claims that we specialize in:

Premises Liability Claims Against Public Entities

When you suffered injuries due to a public entity, you must go through a different legal procedure to hold them liable. Anytime a person wants to file a claim against a public entity, they must do so through a title 59 claim, which falls under the New Jersey Tort Claims Act (TCA). A public entity includes any state, county, municipality, district, public authority, or any other public body in New Jersey.

What does The New Jersey Tort Claims Act say about filing a Title 59 Claim?

Filing a Title 59 claim with a government entity is not the same as filing a lawsuit against them. A Title 59 claim simply notifies the entity so they can perform their own investigation or try to settle the matter prior to you filing a lawsuit.

You must provide notice within 90 days of the accident that includes the following:

  • Name and address of claimant (you)
  • Date, place, and circumstances of the incident
  • A general description of your injury or losses suffered
  • The amount of damages being claimed

If you've suffered injuries and need to take legal action against a public entity or employee, you must file a “Notice of Tort Claim" to protect your right to compensation. If you fail to include all the necessary information in your claim, you will be barred from recovering anything from the public entity or its employees.

It is also vital that you note that you cannot file a lawsuit until six months after you have filed the Notice of Tort Claim.
