General Principles of Law Which Apply to Defective Premises Cases in Pennsylvania or New Jersey
Generally, an owner or possessor of land or real estate has a duty to maintain his real estate in a safe condition and is responsible for any damages caused by his failure to do so. Business owners, home owners, and store owners all have the responsibility to maintain their property. So if you are injured on another person’s property, the property owner may be liable.
Liability for Criminal Conduct
We have successfully prosecuted cases for victims of criminal attacks at apartment buildings, parking lots, and other public and private spaces. In addition, our office has succeeded in cases where our clients were injured as a result of assaults by third party criminals at concerts, bars, supermarkets, public events, restaurants and parties. Victims of these kinds of attacks may be able to make claims against the owner of the premises where the incident occurred for failure to provide adequate security.
