Assault, Premises Liability and Personal Injury Claims in New Jersey

Have you been injured while on private property? You likely already know that if property owners fail to fix an uneven sidewalk, fail to install safety handrails or take other similar steps to create a safe environment, accident victims may seek compensation for injuries. But did you know that property owners can also be held responsible if an assault occurs on their property?

For instance, property owners may be responsible for providing lighting and security in parking lots, alleyways and other access ways leading to their property. Building owners, homeowners’ associations and other property owners may be responsible for providing adequate and effective security. And bars, restaurants and nightclubs may be responsible for not protecting clients from assault and other types of crimes.

If you have been injured by an assault on private property, hopefully you reported the crime to the police. It also makes sense to contact a personal injury attorney to determine whether the property owner should have take steps to ensure your safety and to determine whether he or she is liable for you injuries.
