At the Leonard Legal Group, our Morristown premises liability attorneys have the knowledge and skill you need if you’ve been injured on someone else’s New Jersey property. Since 1996, we have successfully represented injured victims, always seeking maximum compensation. In New Jersey, the highest duty of care owned by a landowner is to the invitee, or the person invited to the property, be they a business visitor or by public invitation. Care must be taken by the property owner when individuals are on the premises. If you have slipped, tripped or fallen victim to an accident caused by the negligence of a property owner, we help you recover the compensation you deserve. Our injury attorneys are well-known and highly respected. Attorney Scott Leonard is Board Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney, a designation achieved by less than 2 percent of New Jersey attorneys.
In New Jersey, four requirements must be met before a victim can pursue a claim for negligence against a property owner. First, the owner must have had a duty to conform to a specific standard of conduct for keeping the premises in a certain condition. Second, the owner must be in breach of that duty. Third, the breach was an actual and proximate cause of your injury, and finally, that you were, in fact, injured or suffered injuries as a result. The most common premises liability accidents include:
If you have been injured by the action or inaction of a property owner who fails to properly repair, correct, or warn against a danger on their premises, you need reliable legal guidance on your side. With more than 20 years of experience helping injured victims, our Morristown New Jersey premises liability lawyers stand firmly by your side.
Under New Jersey law, individuals invited to a property are owed the highest duty of care and safety by the property owner. If you are a trespasser, their obligation is different. It is very important to report your claim as soon as possible, and contact one of our skilled injury attorneys right away. Time is a factor when dealing with spills, dangerous conditions, or pre-existing problems, and many times the property owner will quickly remove, cover up or repair the problem. If you are injured on someone else’s property, take photos of the scene and of your injuries right after the accident, to preserve evidence. Our premises liability lawyers thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case and uncover evidence to support your claim.
If you have been harmed due to the negligent actions of a property owner, you have rights that need to be protected.
