New Jersey Lawyer For Slip & Fall on Ice or Snow at Apartment Complex Parking Lots

Getting into or out of a snow-covered parking lot at your apartment building complex or condo can be frustrating and dangerous. However, it may also mean you get stuck and cannot move. Having to call a tow truck during wintertime, given the high demand for tow trucks, can be a challenge. Worse still would be a slip and fall accident due to snow or ice while walking to or from your car in the parking lot. Or, getting injured by a slip and fall accident while getting into or out of your vehicle at your apartment complex or condo parking lot in New Jersey due to snow or ice.  

Who is responsible for your injuries? The property owner or company responsible for maintaining the parking lots, walkways, stairs, etc., and keeping them safe from snow or ice, can be held accountable in New Jersey for a multiple-family living complex, condo or townhouse association, or apartment building. 

New Jersey Law For Multiple Family Buildings 

Apartment complex property managers or condo managers and owners are responsible for clearing snow/ice in all complex areas, and snow or ice from all parking lots. A multiple-family building or apartment complex in New Jersey rents apartments or condos to NJ families. The building owner or property manager is responsible for managing the rental business. This includes maintenance, such as clearing walkways of any debris, reconstructing pavements, and giving notice to tenants of any potential hazards on the property. 

Consider you are an apartment or condo tenant, and unfortunately, sustain severe, life-altering injuries from a slip and fall accident due to the negligence of the property management company, or the contractor they hired to clear snow and ice from their parking lot. In this case, you are entitled to seek legal compensation for your injuries. An example of this would include your parking lot that is icy or covered in snow. Although you hold a specific responsibility in being cautious of your surroundings when walking through a complex, the property owner has a non-delegable duty to maintain a safe parking lot. 

If you believe an apartment property company was negligent and failed to maintain the property or failed to give notice of a known hazard, you may have a personal injury claim. Contact an experienced New Jersey Slip and Fall attorney today to ensure your rights are protected. We will help you file a lawsuit against the property owner and/or their third-party property management company, the apartment complex owner, or other residential properties. 

Multiple-Family Building Property Owner Mandates in New Jersey

In New Jersey, property owners must provide clean and safe parking lots for tenants and visitors. In New Jersey, apartment property owners owe a duty to maintain the property for their renters, their visitors, delivery workers, etc.  Indeed, third-party delivery workers may include Doordash, UberEats, Grubhub, Amazon, UPS, or FedEx, and they too are owed a duty of care to ensure safe ingress and egress at apartment complexes.  Delivery personnel can be considered business invitees or licensees. Either way, a property owner still owes a duty of care to these workers. Suppose known hazards such as icy pathways, parking lots, or snow-covered entryways are not properly cleared of snow and ice. In this case, the property owner or property management company could be held accountable should a slip and fall accident occur.

If you fell on an icy, snowy parking lot at an apartment building, and were seriously injured, you should immediately seek medical attention. You should then reach out to an experienced NJ Slip & Fall Attorney at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm.

What To Do If You Sustained Injuries in a Snowy Apartment Parking Lot

Regardless of how your initial injuries may seem, it’s best to seek medical help as soon as possible. Often, injuries can appear later on and become more severe than one may think. The following are steps that an injured apartment complex tenant should take after a severe fall:

  1. Documentation. Start building a paper trail for your incident. Make sure to write down what occurred on the day you fell. Also, photograph all injuries and the surrounding area you fell at. Collect all contact information of any witnesses. 
  2. Seek Medical Attention. A property owner could use a delay in notice or a delay in seeking medical care to argue that your injuries are not as severe as you claim. It’s best to speak with medical doctors and specialists as soon as possible. Obtaining a medical diagnosis and treatment plan is crucial. 
  3. Contact Our Team of Attorneys. Do not wait to reach out to an experienced New Jersey Slip & Fall Attorney at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm.
