There are a lot of different types of cases involving premises liability depending on what type of defendant there is. For instance, depending on if it is a residential property or a commercial establishment, then there is a different area of law that applies to that claim.
A premises liability attorney will handle all different types of premises liability claims, whether it involves a residential property or a commercial property. There are just different rules and different laws that apply depending on which is involved.
If you have been injured due to another individual’s negligence, it is pertinent that you hire an experienced attorney to help determine the type of premises liability case you can bring forward. A knowledgeable lawyer will be able to build a case to help maximize any damages you may be deserving of.
There are different elements to consider depending on whether or not an individual was injured on a commercial or residential property. If an individual is involved with a commercial establishment and there is a premises liability claim against that establishment, then an owner must follow a specific set of rules.
The rules that apply to a commercial landowner are that they have a higher duty of care to prevent dangerous conditions on their property, to their customers, and to their guests.
There are different things involved with regard to a residential owner. Their duty of care is not as high as a commercial owner. Many elements need to be evaluated, and an attorney will need to determine the dangerous condition, if there was notice to the defendant of that dangerous condition, if they knew about it, or if they should have done reasonable inspections to find that dangerous condition and correct it.
After that element has been established, an attorney will determine what injuries were caused and how much the individual should receive to compensate them for everything that they have been through.
The elements of the case can depend on the severity of the situation. When an individual is talking about what qualifies as more severe, it depends on if it is in reference to the dangerous condition of the injuries or the dangerous condition of the environment. Both factors can have a significant impact on the way damages are recovered in the different types of New Jersey premises liability cases.
There are many types of premises liability cases involving commercial stores such as supermarkets and big convenience stores. Many times, these establishments sell liquid which can be spilled on the floor, or have refrigerators or freezers where items are leaking.
Parking lots and sidewalks of commercial establishments are also common locations that deal with premises liability cases. This can range from snow and ice during the winter months, to defects such as potholes, cracks in the sidewalks, and other elements that these commercial defendants need to remedy to prevent their customers from sustaining injury.
In the winter months, the most common types of premises liability cases in New Jersey are falls on snow and ice. This is because a lot of establishments either do not have good snow and ice removal procedures in place, or they do not properly take care of their establishment when the weather turns bad.
In addition to removing snow and ice after a storm, there are also procedures that need to be in place with regard to a melt and a refreeze. Individuals will clear a parking lot or sidewalks, put a pile of snow into a location that when the sun comes up and the snow starts to melt, the water will go back on to that area that the customers are walking on. When the sun goes down and the water refreezes, it can become a very dangerous situation.
Outside the winter months, there are a lot of premises liability claims involving slip and falls on dangerous conditions inside commercial establishments, such as leaks or cracks in the floor.
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.

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

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.

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.
