New Jersey Public Property Injury Attorney

Knowledgeable Attorneys Fighting for Victims of Injuries Related to Public Property in New Jersey

Claims against public entities in New Jersey often involve injuries that occurred on public property. A public entity is responsible for injuries caused by the condition of its property if

  • The property was dangerous at the time of the accident
  • Your injury was caused by the dangerous condition
  • It was reasonably foreseeable that the dangerous condition might cause your kind of injury
  • The entity/employee created the dangerous condition — or at least knew about it (or should have known) and had reasonable time to fix it

You’ll need to prove each of these elements. A New Jersey personal injury attorney can help you understand what kinds of proof you might need.

Public entities can also be held liable when they know about potential hazards but fail to properly warn the public, resulting in injury. But the government will probably be immune if the hazard relates to unoccupied/undeveloped land, forestry, weather conditions (including acts of God), or ordinary traffic signals.
