New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyer: More About Hazard Conditions
Hazardous conditions come in all types, shapes, and sizes. Slippery steps and floors:lopsided, uneven, or unstable flooring; cracked or uneven sidewalks; shredded or torn carpeting; potholes and other unsafe roadway or parking lot conditions. Depending on where, how, and when any of these hazardous conditions arose, and whether you’ve been seriously injured as a result of such conditions, an experienced New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyer can help determine whether the property owners, tenants, or maintenance contractors are legally responsible to compensate you for your pain, suffering, and disability.
When the potentially responsible parties have been aware (or should have been aware) of an unsafe condition for a substantial period of time, there’s an increased likelihood that the law will hold those parties responsible for their failures to address and correct such conditions in a timely and proper manner. Property owners, tenants, and maintenance contractors have a duty to inspect property over which they exercise possession and control, particularly if it’s commercial property where the public’s been invited to transact business for a profit.
If you or your loved one has suffered a serious injury as a result of some hazardous condition, its important that you contact a New Jersey Personal Injury Attorney right away so steps can be taken to preserve the evidence, if possible, and interview witnesses, when available.
