Certain property owners are required to have various forms of security on their premises. When they fail to do so, serious accidents and injuries can occur. If you are someone who has been injured due to inadequate security, there is a very good chance that you may qualify for compensation. Please continue reading and speak with our Bergen County personal injury attorney to learn more about how our firm can help you through the claims process ahead.

What are some examples of inadequate security in New Jersey?

There are various forms of inadequate security, though the most common that we see are as follows:

  • Failing to have security cameras installed where there should be
  • Failing to have someone actively monitoring security cameras
  • Neglecting to hire security guards for certain buildings/events
  • Failing to adequately train security guards, preventing them from doing their jobs properly
  • Failing to ensure all surveillance cameras are maintained and working at all times

What should I do if I am hurt on someone’s property in New Jersey?

If you are injured on someone else’s property, especially without security present, you will have to document the incident yourself. You should always call the police, ask witnesses for their contact information, take pictures of the scene of the accident/the unsafe conditions that caused your accident, seek immediate medical treatment, and retain the services of an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney who can fight for the compensation you need to heal in a premises liability claim.

What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New Jersey?

The statute of limitations is the time in which you will have to sue the party responsible for your injuries. In many cases, people will wait to see if their injuries heal on their own before taking legal action, though we cannot advise you to do so, for if you wait any longer than the statute of limitations allows, you will most likely be permanently barred from suing. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New Jersey is, generally, two years, which means that you will, under most circumstances, have two years from the date of your accident to sue the liable party. We are ready to begin the claims process on your behalf today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
