New Jersey property owners are responsible for the safety of those who go enter their property, whether it is a residence or an establishment. While that may seem like a suggestion, it is actually a legal obligation for property owners. If a person is injured within their property, it can result in a premises liability lawsuit, especially when there is a clear indication of negligence on the part of the owner. However, negligence in this particular type of lawsuit is not easy to prove and it can be complicated. Fortunately, our East Orange law firm is exceptionally prepared to deal with such a legal action.
Shopping malls have become an integral part of American life and culture. Nowadays, New Jersey residents can do just about everything at a mall: shop, dine, watch a movie and even get a makeover. However, despite providing a lot of services, mall owners and operators should always look after the safety of their patrons; not only as a service for those frequenting the mall itself, but simply because malls are legally obligated to keep their premises safe. Otherwise, even a simple stroll at a mall can result in injuries.
Property ownership has its own set of responsibilities that, when followed, should provide for the safety of the property owner and other property visitors as well.
