Premises Liability

Introducing Our Firm

John S. Hoyt, lead attorney at Hoyt & Hoyt, PC, represents people in northern New Jersey who have been injured due to the negligence of a property owner or property manager.

Whether a property is a retail store, a nursing home, an apartment complex, a nightclub, a government building or a private home, owners and managers have a duty to keep their premises in reasonably safe condition and to warn people of any known hazards or dangers.

If they do not do these things, people who suffer injuries because of unsafe property conditions can bring a premises liability claim against the owner, the manager, a property insurance company or, if appropriate, the government to seek compensation for their injuries and losses.

You deserve full and fair compensation. Contact an attorney as soon as possible after any premises accident.

While that spill or ice patch may have been there for hours or even days, the owner will start to pay attention as soon as someone falls and breaks an arm. We will need to get an investigator to the site as soon as possible to gather evidence and look for any witnesses. If you were injured on government property, we must notify the government of your claim within 30 days.

Our firm has handled premises liability cases involving serious injuries and even deaths resulting from:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents, falls down stairs, tripping over store merchandise or broken pavement, etc.
  • Swimming pool drowning or near-drowning (which often causes brain damage )
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Dog bites and other domestic animal attacks
  • Elevator or escalator defects
  • Fires from faulty wiring or failure to warn of fire due to defective or poorly maintained smoke detectors
