West Caldwell Slip and Fall Claim Defense Attorneys
Protecting New Jersey businesses and homeowners from premises liability lawsuits
New Jersey law obligates businesses to protect the public from unsafe conditions on the business premises. If a business fails to exercise reasonable care and someone is injured as a result, the company may be responsible for a patron or visitor’s injuries. The same is true for homeowners, who must make their grounds reasonably safe for guests and others, such as delivery persons, who have a legal right to enter the property. At Abramson Law Group, LLC, our attorneys employ a practical, professional approach to ensure that our clients are protected from false or unreasonable claims.
Legal duty of care
For a business to be found responsible for an accident, evidence must prove that a dangerous condition on the business premises caused an injury and that at least one of the following is true:
- The owner or an employee caused the dangerous condition on the premises.
- The owner or an employee knew about the dangerous condition on the premises and did nothing about it.
- The owner or an employee should have known about the dangerous condition on the premises as would be expected of a reasonable person.
Our skilled attorneys work to disprove all elements of these claims.
We work with expert consultants
Our attorneys consult with knowledgeable and respected experts while preparing your defense. With the assistance of physicians, chiropractors and forensic engineers, our attorneys can negotiate the best possible settlements. If trial is necessary, these experts are available to deliver clear, professional testimony so the jurors can see that your business is not responsible or that the injuries are not as severe as claimed.
The benefits of retaining a lawyer quickly
By immediately consulting an attorney, you can help ensure the collection of valuable evidence. The lawyers at Abramson Law Group, LLC thoroughly investigate every case and often visit the premises where the accident occurred to gather crucial evidence, photograph the accident scene and interview witnesses. With significant delay, evidence could be lost.
