Helping New Jersey Victims Of Accidents Caused By Negligent Property Owners

If you were injured due to unsafe conditions at a business or on someone else’s property, you may have grounds for a premises liability claim. Business owners and property owners are required to make reasonable efforts to keep their premises free of hazardous conditions. Property owners can be held liable if dangerous conditions on their property cause an injury when no clear warning signs are posted.

A Firm With A Track Record Of Success

At Hanna | Perez, P.C., we help accident victims in Paramus as well as Bergen, Passaic, Essex and Hudson counties hold property owners accountable and obtain compensation for their injuries. With over 100 years of combined experience, our attorneys know the law and have obtained successful recoveries for individuals in similar circumstances.

If you were hurt due to dangerous conditions on someone else’s property, talk to us before you talk to the insurance company. They are not on your side. We are.

The Basics Of A Premises Liability Claim

To file a premises liability claim, you must prove that you had a right to be on the property and that the property owner is liable for the conditions that caused your accident. There are two different circumstances under which a business or property owner can be held liable for accidents that happened on their property:

  • When an owner or occupier caused the dangerous condition to occur
  • When an owner or occupier knew about a dangerous condition and failed to fix it despite having a reasonable opportunity to do so

Proving liability can sometimes be difficult. By contacting us as soon as possible after your accident, you improve the chances of gathering evidence at the scene of the accident, recovering any surveillance footage that might exist and finding witnesses.

Helping Slip-And-Fall Accident Victims

Slip-and-fall accidents can happen almost anywhere at any time of the year. New Jersey winters provide plenty of situations where walking outside can be treacherous, but poor lighting, missing handrails and loose carpeting can be equally dangerous. We also see a lot of accidents caused spills, open holes and poorly maintained walking areas. Regardless of what caused your accident, we can help you hold the property owner responsible.

Representing Victims Of Dog Bites

New Jersey laws are pretty straightforward when it comes to dog bites. As long as you were not illegally on private property, the dog’s owner is liable for your injury regardless of whether the owner knew the animal would attack or the history of the dog’s behavior. There are only three things you need to hold the dog owner liable:

  • Prove that you were bitten by the dog
  • Prove that the accused owned the dog
  • Prove that you were either in a public place or lawfully on private property

People are sometimes reluctant to file a claim over a dog bite, but dog owners are legally responsible for preventing their dogs from biting or hurting people in any way. If you or your child required an emergency room visit after a dog bite, you should get in touch with us right away.
