New Jersey Parking Lot Accident Attorneys
Personal Injury Lawyers Holding Negligent Parties Accountable
People use parking lots and garages every day. They go to stores, movie theaters, restaurants, parks, professional buildings, hospitals and hotels. Negligence on the part of owners can result in a slip, trip and fall or other type of premises liability accident. This leaves many injured victims wondering if they have a parking lot injury lawsuit.
The New Jersey personal injury attorneys at Shebell & Shebell, LLC offer free consultations to injured accident victims and their families. From our offices in Shrewsbury and Newark, we fight for victims’ rights. During your no-cost consultation, we can explain how the law applies to your situation and help weigh your legal options.
Parking lot safety standards
Whether private or public, the owners of parking lots and parking garages have a responsibility to keep their premises reasonably safe. A slip, trip, and fall or other type of accident could be caused by:
- Uncleared snow or ice
- Cracked or uneven pavement
- Blind spots
- Improper or non-existent 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.
You should also know that you can seek compensation for parking lot injuries at work, too. You generally can’t sue your direct employer or a co-worker for an injury in the parking lot at work; instead, you have a workers’ compensation claim. However, if a third party was responsible for maintenance or security in the parking lot or otherwise responsible for your injuries, you may have a third-party personal injury claim. Our law firm has decades of experience successfully fighting for personal injury and work accident victims.
Attorneys Who Know How To Fight The Insurance Companies
If you were hurt in a slip and fall in a parking lot or some other parking accident caused by negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Recovering compensation may be complicated, however. The owners of parking lots or garages often 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 blame another cause for your injuries. They may even claim that serious injuries like a broken ankle, shattered wrist, or cracked hip were pre-existing. They usually will 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 New Jersey for generations. We take on the insurance companies to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
