New Jersey Lawyer For Slip & Fall on Ice and Snow at Apartment Complex Walkways

In winter, walkways at apartment complexes can be challenging to navigate if they have not been treated and/or scraped clean of ice & snow. If you slip and fall due to ice or snow, you may be wondering who is responsible for your injuries?  The property management company, landlord/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 apartment complex, condo or townhouse association, or apartment building. 

Commercial property owners and/or their contractors, have a duty to inspect, maintain and remediate all snowy and icy conditions.

If you recently fell at an apartment complex as a tenant, a delivery driver, or a visitor, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Next, contact an experienced New Jersey Slip and Fall accident attorney at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm. Each case is different, and we will walk you through the next steps. Call us today at (973) 920-7900.

Apartment Buildings in New Jersey 

Owners or managers of apartment buildings and condos, also called multiple family buildings, are responsible for clearing ice and snow in the building parking lot, sidewalks, stairs, and walkways on their business property. With numerous apartment units, there is an increase in people’s risk of getting injured if the premises are not maintained well. 

If you do slip and fall on a rental property, you may have a personal injury claim against not only the property owner’s third-party property management company, but also the owner of the apartment complex or other residential properties. Potential defendants can vary depending on the situation and how your slip and fall injuries happened. 

New Jersey Multiple-Family Building Property Owners

Under N.J. premise liability laws, property owners are mandated to provide safe walkways for visitors to the property and tenants. The rationale is that the apartment complex is paid rent by its tenants. Although there is a financial benefit to the apartment owner, the owner does have a particular duty to serve their tenants. Suppose a person falls on the icy grounds at the apartment complex. If serious injuries are sustained, they have a right to file a personal injury claim.

Each slip and fall accident is unique, and no two injuries are alike. Any compensation you receive from injuries sustained in a fall depends on the circumstances and facts of your particular case. At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, we discuss your case, advise you of your legal rights, help you file a personal injury claim, and ensure you understand each step. 

What To Do If You Slipped & Fell on an Icy Walkway

Although it can be hard to tell how severe your injuries will be in the long term, you should do the following to protect your legal rights: 

  1. Documentation. Start building a paper trail for your incident. Make sure to write down what occurred on the day you fell. Also, photograph 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 see medical attention as soon as possible. Obtaining a medical diagnosis and treatment plan is crucial. 
  3. Contact Our Team of Injury Attorneys. Do not wait to reach out to an experienced New Jersey Slip & Fall Attorney at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm.
