In New Jersey, as in other states, the owner of commercial or residential property has an obligation to inspect the premises and to either fix any problems that pose an unreasonable risk of injury to others, or to provide adequate notice of the potential for injury. This obligation includes a wide range of issues, from slippery floors or sidewalks to torn carpet or broken tile, from defective steps or stairs to cracked sidewalks or potholes in a parking lot or driveway. If you have been injured because a residential or commercial property owner failed to properly maintain the premises or neglected to provide adequate notice of a risk of injury, you can seek damages under a legal theory known as  “premises liability.” The office of Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, can help.

At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we have more than 40 years of experience fighting for the rights of personal injury victims across central New Jersey. We take a different approach than many other personal injury firms, using our considerable experience, skill, knowledge and resources to focus on ways to win cases. We don’t use the same strategy with every client, but take the time to learn the details of your situation so we can tailor our representation to get the outcome you want. We also understand the emotional toll that a personal injury can take. We are committed to responding to all your calls and e-mails in a timely manner, and to keeping you in the loop at all times so that you are aware of all developments in your case, as well as of your options moving forward.

Because of our longstanding reputation for effective advocacy, many of our new cases come to us as referrals from other lawyers, or from former or existing clients. To schedule a free initial consultation, contact our office online or call us at 732-249-4600 (toll-free at 1-877-249-4600).
