Jersey City Premises Liability Lawyer

We proudly represent injured clients throughout New Jersey

When you’re visiting property owned by someone else, you expect that you’re in a reasonably safe environment. However, that is not always the case. You may suffer a fall while walking down unstable stairs or slip on ice in your employer’s parking lot. In such a situation, someone else is responsible for your injuries.

You may be able to recover the following compensation for your past and future losses:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium

Bhatt Law Group has helped people throughout New Jersey who were injured while visiting someone else’s property. We understand the complexities of premises liability law and will help you navigate the legal system while you focus on recovery.

Our experienced Jersey City premises liability lawyers understand how devastating an unexpected accident can be. You may have significant medical bills and be unable to work while you recover. We can help you obtain the compensation you need in order to move forward with life after an injury.

What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is an area of personal injury law that involves losses suffered because of an incident that occurs on someone’s property. In New Jersey, a person responsible for property has a duty to visitors to maintain it in a reasonably safe manner.

Many different people may be responsible for injuries sustained on a property, including:

  • Property owner
  • Proprietor of premises
  • Business owner
  • Maintenance company
  • Construction company
  • Security company
  • Public school, post office, or other government entity
  • Landlord
  • Property lessee

In order to hold any of these people responsible for your injuries, you must be able to prove the following:

  • The person responsible had a reasonable expectation that you would be on the property
  • The person responsible had a duty to maintain the property reasonably
  • The person responsible breached that duty and did not reasonably maintain the property, causing unsafe conditions
  • The person responsible knew or should have known about those unsafe conditions
  • The unsafe conditions resulted in your injuries

Invitees and Licensees vs. Trespassers

A key element to proving that someone else is responsible for your injuries involves showing that you had a legal right to be on the property in the first place. In general, people who are invited to a residence, visiting a business that serves the public, or engaging in activities on public property, are all invitees or licensees to that land. They are expected to be on that property. However, trespassers do not fall into that category.

A trespasser may be responsible for their own injuries, even if they were caused by unsafe conditions on property. One exception involves minors. Landowners who can or should reasonably foresee that a child trespasser could be on their property do have a duty not to wantonly inflict injury on those who do not intend to commit a crime. Thus, if an innocent child walks across a field to reach a school on the other side, the property owner may be responsible for injuries caused by known hazards on that land.

Common Types of Premises Liability Cases

There are many different types of premises liability cases. Any situation where a person is on someone else’s property and is injured by a known unsafe condition may result in liability of the person responsible for that property. Common types of cases that we handle frequently include:

  • Slip and Fall Accidents – If you slip, trip, or fall because of a dangerous or unsafe conditions on someone’s property, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries and other losses. Our Jersey City premises liability attorneys will compassionately listen to what happened and help you file a claim.

Alright! These guys are amazing. I was devastated when I got a three tickets in New Jersey with 12 points in total and fines adding up over $1K. The officer was truly rude, unfair and just took out his bad day on me. At this point I had no idea what to do but I must find some legal help to fight this in court. After getting the tickets, I called a bunch of different law groups trying to see who can help me with this. I was able to talk to many of them and mostly all of them seemed like they wanted to see how much they can get out of me before even hearing out what my concerns where. Then I got around to calling Bhatt Law Group and I was welcome by this lady (whose name I don't know) and she was amazing. She listened and helped me be calm and gave me assurance I am in good hands. She offer pricing and it seemed very reasonable too. I made my payment and then I didn't have anything to worry about till the day of the virtual court. They figured out all my court dates and managed everything on the back end. They would give me updates on what the process is up to. Funny story, on the day of my virtual court session I overslept thinking my court time was at 11 am instead of 9 am and I had my attorney Devin Baer even giving me a call to get me out of bed to attend the zoom. I don't know how many attorneys would do that for their client. Devin was very helpful, professional and understanding. He gave me a call prior to my court session and gave important pointers and even through out the court session he made me feel confident and assure that everything will be okay. So these guys were friendly, helpful and professional but where there any results? OH YEAH! I was able to lower my fines and points to barely nothing. These guys are life savers and will help you legally in any situation where you have been treated unfairly. Thank you Bhatt Law.
