Premises Liability Archives

When an alcohol server is liable

The state of New Jersey has been doing everything it can to stop drinking and driving.

This centuries-old law holds a bar is liable for the damages caused by anyone that is served alcohol after they are visibly intoxicated.

Trip to the grocery store ends in a slip-and-fall accident

Everyone has been in the grocery store in New Jersey and heard some variation of "cleanup on aisle 6."

Slip-and-fall accidents can lead to severe injuries

The male star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is facing the suit after a tenant claims that he broke an arm after a slip and fall on some ice at one of the man's properties.

Premises liability: Several injured following platform collapse

Parents in New Jersey and across the country often enjoy taking their children to businesses that keep them engaged while offering them physical activity.

Unfortunately, a recent platform collapse at a parkour gym located in another state could ultimately result in a premises liability lawsuit.

Freak car accidents: SUV crashes into Wendy's, injures customers

Standing in line at a fast food restaurant does not sound like an activity that could be dangerously life-threatening. However, it turned out to be just that on Feb. 19 for an 89-year-old customer in a Wendy's restaurant in Bayonne. As he was standing in line, the elderly man was hit by a BMW SUV that crashed into the store and batted the man through the air into a back wall before mangling him under its tires after he fell to the ground. Car accidents in New Jersey are rarely as bizarre and spectacular as the one that transpired in the Bayonne Wendy's that day.

Property owners may be held liable for fall-down accidents

The owners of public properties in New Jersey are responsible for ensuring the safety of the people who enter the property.

If you were injured or lost a family member due to dangerous property, you may file a civil action attempting to hold the owner liable for your injuries or the death of your family member.

Premises liability laws require retail merchants to keep you safe

Going shopping is not only dangerous for your checkbook or credit card balances but, potentially, also for you.

Premises liability laws around the country, and here in New Jersey, are designed to eliminate -- or at least greatly reduce -- the hazards that could lead to serious injuries or death.
