It is important to talk to a qualified New Jersey premises liability lawyer when determining liability and investigating more information in your New Jersey premises liability case. A premises liability attorney has handled a variety of premises liability claims, and there are many different factors in premises liability cases that will be important to take into consideration.
If you have been injured due to another’s negligence, it is important to work with an experienced premises liability attorney to help understand what goes into a premises liability case and the role they will serve helping you along the way.
In New Jersey, the legal status of a visitor on a premise plays a large role in a premises liability case. It depends on what the status of a visitor is. For instance, if someone is a business invitee, in layman’s term, it is basically a customer of a business, someone who is there for the financial benefit of the commercial defendant. Now the liability on this commercial establishment is higher, they owe a higher duty of care to business invitees.
If someone is a social guest, they are over at a residential property and are invited there, their duty of care to that individual visiting is not as high as a commercial establishment, but they still do owe them a duty to either warn or prevent dangerous conditions that a residential property owner knows about. If they know that there is a dangerous condition on their property, they have to warn their guests.
Trespassers have the least amount of liability when it comes to rules on a property. If someone is trespassing on a property, it is difficult to be able to prove that there is a liability on behalf of the landowner. That is one of the first things a premises liability attorney will try to establish in New Jersey cases. It is what their client’s status as a visitor on that property was and then different rules apply in determining whether or not they have a case.
An attorney can help a person who has been injured as a result of a dangerous condition on a property once they are able to prove that the factors of liability existed, they are now able to try to get their client compensation for their injuries and that would include their pain and suffering and the effect that it has had on their life. They can also make a claim for their economic losses, which would involve medical bills (both past, present, and future) and lost wages (both past, present, and future) to try to put them in the position they would have been in if this premises liability claim never occurred.
The best course of action after an injury is to contact a premises liability attorney because there are a lot of factors to a premises liability claim in New Jersey. If you are on someone’s property other than your own, whether it is a commercial property or a residential property, and there is something there that causes injury to you, you should contact a premises liability attorney to discuss what your rights are.
It depends on your status as a visitor on that property, what the dangerous condition is, what notice the defendant had, and then what your injuries are. An experienced premises liability attorney is probably the best thing you can do to determine whether or not you have a case depending on the many elements of establishing liability.
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. I was in a bad car accident & did not know how to move forward with what to do and how to process. 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!!!
From my first phone call to the end of my case this firm was on the ball!! Always responsive and professional and kept me up to date and informed. This is my firm for any future needs!
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.
