In New Jersey, the coming winter months mean ice, sleet, snow and a higher risk of slip-and-fall accidents. Many slip-and-falls happen where outdoor pedestrian activity is common: parking lots and sidewalks outside businesses. Business owners have a legal obligation to ensure their premises, including their parking lots and and the area surrounding their shops, are safe for consumers in the winter months and clear of any obstruction or dangerous condition.
In the event someone suffers a slip-and-fall injury due to icy or snowy surfaces in the parking lot or sidewalk of a business, the owner may be held liable for the damages incurred. If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip-and-fall accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages and losses. To learn more, contact Breslin and Breslin today.
