Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable New Jersey personal injury attorneys to learn more about premises liability claims, what you need to win one, and how our firm can help you through every step of the claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do I know if I have a valid premises liability claim?

If you are someone who was injured on another person’s property, you will have to hire an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney who can gather and present enough evidence to satisfy the burden of proof. Simply put, you will have to demonstrate that the property owner knew or should have known about the unsafe condition, failed to timely fix it, and that you were injured and suffered significant damages as a result.

What will I need to prove I was injured due to another party’s negligence?

If you have been injured in an accident, you should try and collect as much evidence as possible to prove that you were injured as a result of another party’s negligence. Some of the most valuable forms of evidence include pictures of the unsafe property condition that caused your accident, witness statements corroborating your claim, medical documents detailing the extent of your injuries, surveillance footage of the accident, police reports of the incident, and more.

How long will I have to sue someone for an injury in New Jersey?

If you are injured in an accident in New Jersey, whether on another person’s property or otherwise, you will have to file your personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New Jersey is, generally, two years, under most circumstances, you will have two years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible. Do not wait past the two-year mark, for if you do, you will most likely be barred from suing. Our firm is here to help. All you have to do is give us a call.
