A property owner’s responsibility for safety goes beyond clearing snow or maintaining sidewalks. Some injuries to patrons occur due to the proprietor not taking proper safety precautions related to the security of the property. Whether you fell because of poor lighting or were attacked due to a lack of security, you may be entitled to compensation for medical care costs, lost income, and pain and suffering.
The Forman & Cardonsky has been representing Elizabeth residents and those throughout the state of New Jersey for over 70 years. The lawyers provide dedicated advocacy after they suffered injuries due to unsafe conditions on commercial property.
Whether you have been injured or a loved one tragically died in an accident or criminal act, you need immediate advocacy to protect both your rights and the evidence that helps build a strong injury claim. If you are able, identifying witnesses and securing phone numbers can help tell your story. Documenting what you recall from the incident provides a fresh recollection. Notifying the manager puts them on alert to resolve the security problem so it does not happen to anyone else.
An unqualified or overworked security guard does little to make a commercial building or parking lot secure. Cries for help may go unheard following a fall due to poor or no lighting or an assault or robbery.
Our job is to investigate the events of the incident, including the steps that were not taken to ensure the security of the property. While you get the medical care you need, we work closely with your doctors and other medical specialists to understand the extent of your injury and its short and long-term impact.
In the end, our attorneys maintain dedication and a strong work ethic in securing full and fair compensation for your injuries and losses.
