Premises Liability Law

Premises liability law requires property owners and possessors to keep the property in a safe condition and adequately warn visitors about any hazard, such as a weak staircase, slippery floor, or a hole in the ground. Someone harmed on an unsafe premise may be entitled to compensation.

If Your Are Injured

If you are hurt because of a hazard on someone’s property, consulting a Raritan premises liability lawyer can determine if you have a case. If you do, he or she can form your lawsuit and assess the amount of compensation for medical expenses, loss of wages and other damages. If the hazard and lack of warning were egregious, punitive damages might apply.
