Slip and Fall Accidents on Snow and Ice in New Jersey
Many people from New Jersey are injured every day in the wintertime as a result of snow and ice causing dangerous and slippery conditions. If you or a loved one are injured as a result of a slip and fall accident, such as falling on snow and ice on a sidewalk, parking lot, shopping mall, hotel, walkway, or your place of employment, one question to ask is “If preventative measures were taken by your landlord, or the owner of the property where you had your fall, would you not have fallen?” Similarly, did the property owner, landlord, or their contractors, know, or should have known, that an unsafe condition existed?
During wintry conditions, one of the most common slip and fall accidents is pedestrians falling on snow and ice that has not been cleared from sidewalks, walkways, or stairs, and/or ice melt was not appropriately applied, or that melting snow refroze. It is a landlord’s / property owner’s responsibility to take reasonable steps to ensure the premises are safe and often they hire a snow and ice contractor to maintain the property in the winter months.
If you are injured, you may be looking for guidance and someone to help. Our experienced New Jersey personal injury lawyers can offer you the advice you need and can trust during this uncertain and difficult time. New Jersey has a two-year statute of limitations, a time limit whereby a person can bring an injury lawsuit.
