How to determine if you are a victim of negligent maintenence

On behalf of Goldstein Goldstein

Suffering injuries, both physical and emotional, in any type of accident is difficult, but it can be incredibly frustrating to know that you suffered because of the negligent or reckless actions of another party. In some cases, it is not a direct action that causes you harm, but rather negligent maintenance is to blame.

Your accident and injuries could be the result of negligent maintenance if you were hurt in a slip-and-fall accident or other incident in which dangerous conditions caused you harm. It can be difficult to validate a claim of negligent maintenance, but you will find great benefit in seeking experienced legal help if you wish to pursue compensation.

The two types of liability

From wet floors to uneven New Jersey sidewalks, you may be wondering who or what is to blame for your accident and injuries. You may even assume that you are at least partially liable for your accident, but in many cases, victims of negligent maintenance do not even realize that they may have a valid personal injury case.

In a negligent maintenance claim, you must prove one of the following types of liability:

  • Vicarious liability: With vicarious liability, small businesses, corporations and other organizations may be liable for injuries suffered on their property. If the property owner failed to protect the safety of visitors, those injured on the property could bring a civil claim, even if the property owner was not present at the time of the accident.
  • Strict liability: In some cases, it may be possible to prove that a party is solely and strictly responsible for the results of an accident. If dangerous products or inherently dangerous conditions played a role in your accident, you may be able to prove strict liability.

Building a claim after a personal injury accident begins by reaching out for help as soon as possible. The evidence needed to validate and support your claim can degrade over time, and you will find it beneficial to take quick action to protect your rights.

Getting the recovery you deserve

Whether you know exactly what caused your accident or you are unsure if you even have a valid claim, you would be wise to seek a full understanding of your legal rights after an accident.

Whether a party is strictly liable or vicariously liable for what happened, you may be able to claim recompense for your accident-related pain, suffering and financial losses. The first step toward getting the recovery you deserve may be a complete case evaluation with an experienced attorney.
