Be prepared for the tricks and traps of predators in parking lots

Parking lots and parking garages are dangerous areas to which business and property owners must pay particular attention. Although anyone can be at risk in a New Jersey parking garage or parking lot, crime records seem to indicate that predators more often set their aims at women who might be easier targets and more vulnerable. Not many parking facilities have surveillance cameras, due to the cost of maintenance and the cost required for personnel to monitor the surveillance systems.

Are you suffering the consequences of your landlord's negligence?

Are you struggling to cope with the consequences of a slip-and-fall incident in your apartment building, a retail store or another public area in New Jersey? You may be happy to learn that you might have grounds to pursue financial relief to help you settle medical bills and make up for lost income. However, you will have to establish negligence on the part of the property owner — a process that might be challenging.

Did you shop yourself into the hospital this past holiday season?

Did you enter the New Year suffering the consequences of a shopping injury? Then you might have questions about your rights to seek recovery of financial and other damages. The volumes of shoppers in retail establishments during the holidays increase the chances of incidents that could cause injuries.

Were your injuries caused by your landlord's negligence?

If you rent an apartment in New Jersey, you will likely expect your landlord to ensure safe surroundings. In fact, it is a property owner's responsibility to keep tenants happy and to prevent dangerous conditions that might cause injuries. He or she must follow the safety and health codes of the state and the city, and perform regular maintenance.

If navigating a civil lawsuit seems daunting, help is available

Slip-and-fall accidents can happen anywhere, and if you live in an apartment complex in New Jersey, your fate may be in the hands of the property owner. Negligent maintenance can result in potholes in the parking lot, loose railings and insufficient lighting in the stairwell, electrical hazards in your apartment, and more. You may face additional risks if you use public transportation to get to work every day, and falls with devastating consequences are also somewhat frequent at supermarkets.

Is your child's day care filled with happy faces or red flags?

As a parent of a toddler in New Jersey, you are likely in the same boat as many other parents who have to work to provide for all their children's needs. If you are not fortunate enough to have other family members who can care for your child while you are at work, the only other option might be day care. However, finding a facility at which your child will receive loving care and education in a safe and healthy environment can be a challenge.

You can get up and fight if you were thrown off the gym treadmill

Have you suffered an injury while exercising at the gym where you spend many hours and thousands of dollars on your membership? Just like any other New Jersey business, gym owners must protect patrons from suffering injuries. Sadly, that is not always the case, and you may not be aware that there are many other victims of gym injuries.

Is my landlord responsible for my losses?

When renting a home or an apartment, one expects the property to be safe. It is unfortunate that some New Jersey residents end up renting properties that someone maintained poorly or are in unsafe neighborhoods. If you are a tenant who has experienced losses due to crime or an accident on the property, your landlord may be responsible for your losses.

Steps to take after a slip-and-fall accident

Property owners in New Jersey must provide safe surroundings for tenants and visitors. This not only applies to stores but also apartment buildings and any other facilities. If you rent an apartment, your landlord must take reasonable care of maintenance and immediately repair any hazards that could cause injuries.
