Premises Liability Archives

What are your options if you're injured due to lack of security?

If you have been the victim of a violent crime and/or a robbery, you may be able to hold the business where it happened liable. Owners of certain businesses, like bars, are responsible for hiring qualified bouncers or security guards to help protect their customers.

Are your injuries due to a property owner's negligence?

Residents are hunkering down as winter storms bear down on New Jersey. The forecast is calling for arctic blasts and snowfall coupled with tropical storm-force winds. In the words of one forecaster, "A lot of winter [is] coming at you fast."

Can you file a claim if you get injured on a friend's property?

If you are visiting a friend's home, chances are you never think of the many ways that you could wind up injured on their property due to a hazardous condition. Yet these type of incidents happen quite frequently and make up a good portion of homeowner liability claims.

Schools and premises liability

New Jersey schools have a duty to keep the children who attend them safe from harm. Nevertheless, it is not uncommon for children to be injured at school and this is why numerous lawsuits have arisen related to the failure of schools to keep their students safe while they are on school property. A lot of these lawsuits utilize the legal theory known as "premises liability."

Premises liability claims after parking lot accidents

New Jersey residents have to navigate parking lots every day, and they don't seem like dangerous environments, but that couldn't be further than the truth. In fact, at the Law Offices of Michael P. Burakoff, PA, we have seen numerous parking lot-related accidents result in serious injury and even death.

Premises liability and retail stores

Retail stores and parking lots can be a lot more dangerous than you immediately believe. Indeed, parking lots are full of quickly moving vehicles with distracted drivers behind their wheels. Meanwhile, a retail store could be fraught with different obstacles that customers could trip over, wet or slippery floors, poorly lit areas and other potentially dangerous obstacles.

Slip and fall accidents in New Jersey

Picture a dimly lit stairway that a bucket of mop water has just been spilled on. There are also boxes and other pieces of debris that have been left in the stairwell. This is an extremely dangerous situation for someone who might be walking down the stairway. The person won't be able to see the obstacles ahead of him or her and a fatal or injurious trip and fall accident could easily result.
