What is Premises Liability Law?
Premises Liability Law is an area that focuses on the Landowners Liability Act. Personal injuries that are suffered as a result of premise liability negligence can be complicated and require extensive research on the grounds where the injury occurred. Our Teaneck premises liability attorneys take the time to perform the research and investigations required to deem if a property was neglected. For a premise liability case to occur, there must be a breach of duty of care or another wrongful act on the grounds. Personal injuries that result from neglected premises can include:
- Slip and Fall Injuries
- Swimming Pool Accidents
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Wrongful Deaths
What is the Responsibility of the Owner?
Both private and commercial property owners have a duty and responsibility to manage their premises and keep their grounds in a safe manner. If the grounds of a premise are neglected, the negligence can in turn lead to unsafe or hazardous conditions. Visitors and residents of properties should be able to safely frequent the grounds of a property without having to worry or suffer personal injuries from an owner’s neglect. Unfortunately this is not always the case. Negligent property owners that fail to maintain their properties in a safe manner may be liable for visitors personal injuries. If you’ve fallen victim to an injury suffered from the negligence of a property owner, our New Jersey premise liability lawyers are here to help. Contact us at (201) 928-0300 for a free consultation to discuss the unique circumstances of your premise liability case.

Is There a Time Limit for Filing a Premises Liability Case?
Yes – the time limit, or statute of limitations, for injuries resulting from premises liability claims in New Jersey is two years from the date the injury occurred. If you’ve been impacted and injured as the result of premise liability negligence, it is imperative to take action within the two year window. If an injured victim of premise liability misses this window, the injured party will not be able to file suit for damages once the statute of limitations has passed.
