Personal Injury Cases Are Not Just For Car Accident Injuries

Personal injury cases are not just limited to accident injuries that occur on roadways. They can include accidents that happen because of dangerous properties. Wet floors, uneven parking lots, faulty stairs, and falling tree limbs can cause catastrophic injuries and extraordinary medical expenses. Dwight P. Ransom Attorney At Law can help you understand how New Jersey’s personal injury and negligence laws factor into your case. Dwight P. Ransom​ will help you get the maximum compensation available for your injuries.

You may have suffered an accident on a property due to faulty lighting, unmaintained premises or lack of proper security, which can be classified as negligence. In New Jersey, negligence occurs when the cause of an injury is the failure of another party to act like a reasonable person should have.

Property owners are responsible for maintaining a fairly safe environment, so visitors on the property do not suffer an injury. If a property owner was negligent in providing a safe property, they could be found liable in your lawsuit. Mr. Ransom can walk you through how New Jersey’s liability laws may impact your case.

When asking for damages in your case, you need to be less responsible for the accident than the person whom you are claiming has caused it.

The Type Of Visitor You Were Matters

In New Jersey, property owners have different levels of responsibility to those coming onto their property depending on the category of visitor or relationship that person has with the property owner or manager.

A relationship with a property owner can fall into one of three categories:

  • Invitee
  • Licensee
  • Trespasser

Mr. Ransom can help you determine which category you fit into during the time of your accident and how the standards associated with your property-owner relationship impact your case.
