Experienced South Jersey Premises Liability Lawyers
Owners of property owe a duty to visitors and customers to make certain their property is safe. If an accident happens because of improper inspections, failure to correct a known defect or for a variety of reasons, you may be entitled to a recovery.
The attorneys at Garber Law have been representing New Jersey and Pennsylvania personal injury victims (including those who were hurt on the premises of another) since 1986 and successfully getting the maximum recoveries from insurance companies and before juries. We get recoveries for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, property damage, disfigurement and wrongful death.

Who Is Liable?
The primary target is the owner of the premises. This can be a homeowner, a public agency or, most often, a commercial business. In some cases, it could be an outside contractor, like a maintenance crew or security company. In all cases, our lawyers investigate who else may be another source for recovery.
How Garber Law Premises Liability Lawyers Can Help
We will investigate the cause of the accident by inspecting the scene, talking to all witnesses, examining all relevant business records and whatever else is needed to prove your claim. We have medical, economic and engineering experts at the ready, if needed, to review your case. We will attempt settlement with the insurance adjustors; when negotiations fail, we will bring your case to court.
