Property owners and managers have a responsibility to maintain safe conditions on their premises. If you suffered an injury while visiting someone’s property, you might have a valid claim for damages against the landowner or manager.
Consult an Evesham Township premises liability lawyer for detailed information about pursuing compensation for your injury. Our personal injury attorneys could help you hold a negligent property owner accountable in a civil claim for damages.
While slips and falls commonly form the basis of successful premises liability lawsuits, a broad range of property accidents can support a claim for damages, such as:
Whenever an individual gets hurt on someone else’s property, consulting an Evesham Township premises liability attorney should be a priority. The sooner a lawyer is retained, the sooner they can begin collecting evidence of a property owner or manager’s negligence.
Premises liability law obligates property owners and managers to take reasonable steps to protect visitors from foreseeable harm. The degree of care a landowner must use depends on the type of visitor on the property. A knowledgeable attorney in Evesham Township could assess whether a property owner or manager violated their duty of care in a specific premises liability case.
Property owners who operate businesses or public spaces in Evesham Township owe the highest duty of care to their customers, known as “invitees.” They must make regular inspections to discover hidden dangers, make prompt repairs to hazards, and warn invitees about dangerous conditions which cannot be remedied in a timely manner.
People who enter a property for their own benefit with the landowner’s knowledge and permission are called “licensees.” Property owners have no obligation to inspect their premises for dangers or to repair hazardous conditions for the licensee’s protection. However, they must warn a licensee of any dangers that are not open and obvious.
A landowner in Evesham Township does not owe any level of protection to someone who enters their property without permission. There is an exception, known as the Attractive Nuisance Doctrine, if the trespasser is a child and the property has a feature that might attract a child onto the premises.
Examples of such features include swimming pools, play equipment, sandpits, sheds, construction equipment, or anything that might entice a child to enter. Property owners who know children might trespass must erect a barrier to prevent entry and access to attractive nuisances that may otherwise harm a child.
The state’s statute of limitations for civil lawsuits is generally two years form the date of the accident. If a person files a premises liability lawsuit after the allotted time has passed, a judge will likely dismiss the case, and the claim will expire.
When an accident occurs on government property, such as a township office or public park, state law requires the injured person to put the local government agency on notice of their intent to sue within 90 days of the incident.
Securing legal counsel soon after a property accident could help preserve an injured person’s right to bring a premises liability lawsuit in Evesham Township. An attorney at our firm could file the necessary documents correctly, on time, and with the appropriate office on behalf of an injured person.
If you were hurt on someone else’s property due to their negligence, you deserve compensation for your losses. Let an Evesham Township premises liability lawyer on our team walk you through the process and fight for your right to receive a comprehensive settlement or jury verdict.

This team is incredible. They are friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate everything they have done for me and would recommend them to anyone. Overall great experience
My case settled recently after lasting 4 years. Grungo and Colarulo’s law firm were able to secure a large settlement award for my slip and fall accident. This money will help secure my future for the permanent injury I received as a result of the slip and fall. Everyone was very caring, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Christine Lafferty is an excellent litigation lawyer. I highly recommend using them if you have been injured or in an accident. I hope I am never in a situation again to need their services, but I know who to go to if I, or any of my family members are ever injured. Thanks Grungo and Colarulo and staff for your compassionate service!
Thank you so much Grungo and Colarulo for helping me with my case. Special thanks to Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team. Erica Domingo and her team was very nice and helped me tremendously throughout my case like more than one year and half. They gave me the right advice and guided me through every step of my case. They gave me prompt and clear responses to all my questions. In addition, Erica and her team provided me with all the what if scenarios so that I can have a clear vison of the steps ahead.
I would definitely recommend Grungo and Colarulo.
Thanks again Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team
My wife and I reached out to Grungo Colarulo in 2020 for advise on a legal matter. After a meeting with the Attorney and Paralegal, we decided to go forward with a case. This case required a lot of documentation, and expert review of the documentation which was aquired. Throughout the process, we were kept up to date monthly, and Grungo Colarulo was always responsive to any questions that we had. The entire staff at Grungo Colarulo are very professional, caring, and willing to go the extra mile. This firm is a definite recommend!
I left five (5) stars only because that’s as many as I could leave. If I could, I would have left 100 stars. Bob & Christine are the absolute best! My settlement far exceeded what I ever imagined. They are professional, friendly, and really listened to what I had to say. They kept me up to date with the progress of my case every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Very professional, communicates well, makes me feel like they have my best interest at heart, and overall just a great company. Christine and the whole team has been on top of everything. Would definitely recommend!! 10/10
First and foremost I would like to thank the whole team at Grungo Colarulo!! In addition to that, Stephanie & Riley & Drenna have done such an outstanding job taking care of me in such a difficult and low point of my life.

Those ladies were there every step, every inch, every mile & beyond with helping me when I had no idea how to navigate. I will forever be thankful for them and for the outcome of my case! If you ever need assistance I highly recommend this practice!!! Beyond professional, helpful, precise, caring, knowledgeable & humble!!!

This was my first time ever having to have a lawyer for an automobile accident. From the beginning they took care of everything. They put me at ease so I could concentrate on my medical needs. Everyone I spoke to during the process were always extremely pleasant and knowledgeable.
Thank you to Grungo Colarulo for representing me and getting the settlement you did to help me move forward. I would highly recommend Grungo Colarulo to anyone who wants outstanding legal representation.

A dear family friend referred us to a young attorney named Rich Grungo, Jr. We wanted answers and if necessary, justice for our father. From day one of a five-year journey, Mr. Rich Grungo, Jr. made our family and our pain his own. The man never stopped working for us. He kept us informed every step of the way. Questions were answered quickly and with great compassion and expertise. Even though Rich was always busy, he was never too busy for us. We always felt like we were his only clients
I had the opportunity to observe Mr. Grungo work in this case, both in the courtroom on the technical matters of the motions and also as his presentation to the jury in opening and presenting witnesses as well as utilizing animations… and drawings and films that were necessary for a proper understanding of the case…At all times during the presentation, Mr. Grungo operated mostly without notes and questioned the witnesses in a conversational manner which made it most effective. **
Thank you for everything. I honestly felt like you treated my son like he was your own son, for that I am grateful. I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for being so awesome to both of us.
It was a pleasure working with Bill. He constantly kept me informed. I would recommend Bill and his firm to anybody I know. They’ll be in good hands.
I had the opportunity to retain Mr. Colarulo for a vehicle accident I encountered. I give him my highest recommendation for anyone in need of an excellent Personal Injury Attorney. Not only does he have an in depth knowledge of the legal field, but he emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel secure during the entire process. Mr. Colarulo has the knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you. He comes highly recommended.
Hi Rich, Well I’m on my way up to college to finish packing my son’s stuff up and to go to his Graduation tomorrow. It’s hard to believe how fast and how slow, at the same time 5 years can go by. I was just thinking of you as I am getting ready to leave and wanted to thank you once again for everything you have done for my son’s future. You are a good and just man. God Bless to you and your family.
