Should you be worried about potholes as a motorcyclist?

Potholes are a pain no matter where in New Jersey you're traveling. They can damage your vehicle, burst your tires, and leave you with some nasty injuries. But that's mostly for covered vehicles like cars, vans, or trucks. What about people like you, who have to weather the strike with your motorcycle alone?

TVs and heavy objects at home can endanger your child’s life

When there are young children in the home, most parents in New Jersey and elsewhere childproof their house, including plugging up electrical outlets and installing child-proof locks on cabinets. It may be easy to overlook other common dangers that can be just as deadly as medications or sharp objects within reach, including heavy household items that many people believe are not a threat.

How can pedestrians be at risk near construction sites?

As the weather begins to warm up, New Jersey residents will see more construction of buildings and roads around town. This can also spell danger for those who are walking close to where workers are renovating offices, putting up new buildings or improving roads. The last thing you would expect as you are walking to work or getting your shopping done is to be injured by a nearby construction project, but unfortunately, this can happen.

What is social host liability?

If you are a New Jersey parent who has teenaged children, you should think twice before letting them have a party in your home where alcohol will be available. FindLaw explains that New Jersey has a social host liability law that holds you responsible if any of your teenager’s guests becomes drunk at the party and then causes an accident on his or her drive home.

Who's at fault for a slip-and-fall?

New Jersey residents who slip, trip, or fall on someone else's property may be wondering what the next step is. We at Lieberman, Ryan, & Forrest LLC, we find it important to help you understand who can be held responsible for these accidents and what possible compensations may be available to you.

Understanding the New Jersey Tort Claims Act

There are potential hazards across the state of New Jersey, so it is no surprise that injuries can happen in public parks or government buildings as easily as in an amusement park or grocery store. What many do not realize, however, is that when someone sustains an injury at a government-owned facility, the rules of premises liability differ slightly.

Slip and fall accidents in poorly lit areas

Now that the weather is cooperating, more and more Somerville residents are staying out past dark. When out walking around the streets and parking lots, it is important to be careful of hidden hazards. But when a property owner is negligent in their lighting or other parking lot maintenance, they can be liable for the often serious injuries that result.
