Experienced Premises Liability Attorneys Assist Parking Lot Fall Victims in Middlesex, Ocean and Monmouth Counties
When you walk to your car after going to the mall with your family, or head home from the supermarket after picking up all the items on your grocery list, or slowly make your way to your vehicle after spending the day running errands, or return from a family dinner at a local restaurant, the last thing you want to worry about is a slip & fall accident.
Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to spot a crack in the pavement, a patch of ice, an oil spill, a pothole, or a hidden set of steps when you are carrying groceries, retail purchases, takeout food or other items through the parking lot. These kinds of parking lot falls, which can result in significant personal injuries, are especially likely if the lot has inadequate lighting.

Common Injuries Suffered in Parking Lot Slip and Falls in New Jersey
When you visit someone else’s property, whether it’s a shopping mall, supermarket, nightclub or personal residence, you expect to leave at some point — free from serious injury. This is true even when you are arriving or leaving the premises and walking through the parking lot or garage.
Property owners have a legal responsibility to protect visitors against accidents, whether the accident occurred inside a building, on a lawn or in a parking lot. Most parking lot slip & fall and trip & fall injuries are caused by negligent property owners who fail to inspect hazardous conditions or warn visitors about those conditions. NJ premises liability law protects innocent people, like you, by holding property owners accountable for negligent conduct that leads to slip and fall accidents.
If a property owner fails to maintain and inspect their parking lot, slip & fall accidents become more likely. Some of the most serious injuries suffered in parking lot slip and falls include:
- Broken bones
- Muscle strains
- Skin lacerations
- Back injuries
- Neck pain
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Wrongful death
Steps You Should Take If You Have Sustained an Injury as a Result of a Slip & Fall in a Parking Lot
If you or a loved one took a spill in a parking lot and sustained an injury, the first thing you should do is see a doctor and make sure you receive proper medical treatment. Once you’ve taken care of your health, you should contact an experienced premises liability lawyer to explore your legal options for getting compensated for your injuries and medical bills.
Depending on the exact location of the parking lot where your slip and fall accident occurred, you may have difficulty determining the identities of and locating, all of the potentially liable individuals. The owner of the parking lot may be different from the owner of the grocery store or shopping center you visited. Moreover, there may be multiple parties who were responsible for your injuries. An experienced personal injury attorney can investigate your case and identify all of the people who may be held liable under New Jersey premises liability law.
