Accidents can happen anywhere – and for many reasons. For example, not having a lifeguard on duty at a swimming pool; an unsanded , icy sidewalk in front of a restaurant; an elevator that hasn’t been maintained properly; a malfunctioning amusement park ride; a wet floor in a grocery store; failure to provide adequate security; unprovoked dog bites and attacks; exposure to hazardous chemicals; a broken section of boardwalk; and other hazards. Potentially dangerous conditions like these can result in lasting injuries, life-long pain, and even death.
New Jersey state law makes it clear that the person, corporation, or government entity that controls a property has a duty to maintain the property in a safe condition for all those who enter the property. That entity has an obligation to know about dangerous and potentially dangerous conditions and to correct them. Residential and business property owners have a legal obligation to make sure their property is safe and properly maintained. Additionally, liability law dictates that they must warn people who enter the premises of any unsafe conditions. Property owners who do otherwise endanger their visitors.
