Parking Lot Accident Attorneys
Our Personal Injury Lawyers Hold Negligent Parties Accountable
People use parking lots and garages throughout Monmouth and Ocean counties every day. They go to stores, restaurants, parks, doctors, dentists, hospitals and hotels. Negligence on the part of owners can result in a slip, trip and fall or other type of premises liability accident. The personal injury attorneys at Shebell & Shebell, LLC fight for the rights of victims. Our offices are located in Shrewsbury and Freehold.
Like other property owners, the owners of parking lots and garages have a responsibility to keep their premises safe. A slip and fall or other type of accident could be caused by:
- Uncleared snow or ice
- Cracked or uneven pavement
- Blind spots
- Improper or nonexistent markings
- Poor traffic flow
- Inadequate lighting
A slip and fall accident can cause serious injuries. These can include broken bones, head injuries, back injuries, spinal cord injuries, knee injuries and dislocated shoulders. Victims may require surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy. They may miss time from work, resulting in a loss of income.
Attorneys Who Know How To Fight The Insurance Companies
If you were hurt in a parking lot accident caused by negligence, you deserve financial compensation. Recovering compensation may be complicated, however. The owners of the parking lot or garage typically deny fault and insist they did nothing wrong.
Then there are the insurance companies, who are more interested in protecting their profits than in helping you. There are many tactics they use to try to minimize your claim. They may question the extent of your injuries or argue that they were pre-existing. They may even blame you for what happened.
Insurance companies have lawyers looking out for their best interests. You need a personal injury lawyer who will fight for you. Our firm has been helping the injured in Monmouth and Ocean counties for generations. We take on the insurance companies to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
Our legal team investigates your accident to get the facts. We gather evidence, such as video from security cameras. Our attorneys review all documentation related to your accident, including accident reports and medical records. We identify and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult experts who can help us determine how your accident happened.
Helping The Injured Through Negotiated Settlements And Jury Verdicts
When insurance companies see that we have built a strong case and are ready to fight for you in court, they often agree to talk about a settlement. They are hoping for a quick deal that helps them save money. Any settlement of your case has to be one that meets your needs, and a “quick” settlement may not be in your best interests.
We fight for a resolution of your case that provides compensation for all the damages you have suffered, including pain, suffering, loss of quality of life, and any resulting disability, medical expenses and lost wages.
If the insurance company won’t negotiate, we’ll be ready to fight for you in court. Our attorneys are skilled litigators who know how to get results at trial. Attorney Thomas F. Shebell, III is Board-Certified by the New Jersey State Supreme Court as a civil trial attorney. Only about 2 percent of the lawyers in the state have earned this certification.
