Is the property owner at fault for your fall?

As a New Jersey resident who has slipped, fallen, and harmed yourself on someone else's property, you likely understand that it can be difficult to prove that you weren't at fault for the incident. What exactly is needed in order to show a property owner has caused your injury?

How do people suffer injuries in elevators?

Elevators help millions of people each day access upper or lower floors in buildings, so it is natural to wonder if elevators are a safe mode of travel. While many people do ride elevator cars without incident, sometimes elevators can cause injury or even death. In the event an elevator causes harm to a New Jersey resident, the property owner could be held liable.

Falls the leading cause of fatal, nonfatal injury among seniors

When you are an older American, certain hazards that younger people may be able to easily avoid can cause serious falls, and in some cases, those falls can lead to long-term hardship and even death. At Lieberman, Ryan & Forrest, L.L.C., we recognize that, while older Americans often have certain risks factors in play that make them more susceptible to falls, the negligence of others is often a contributor to many of today’s slip-and-fall accidents.

Do not rush to blame yourself

We have seen it all too often — people put the blame on themselves for slips, trips and falls. It is only human to want to blame yourself if there is nobody there who directly harmed you. However, allowing negligent New Jersey property owners to continue their irresponsible habits often only perpetuates the problem. In other words, staying silent could end up leading to the continuation of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident, endangering yourself and others in the future.

Who's responsible for sidewalks?

If you are a homeowner in New Jersey, one thing you may wonder about is the sidewalk in front of your home. What would happen if someone fell? Would you be liable? Are you required to shovel snow or keep that sidewalk maintained? These are common questions when it comes to who is responsible for sidewalks within the city limits in the various cities in the state.

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.
