Burlington Parking Lot Accident Lawyers
One minute you are pushing a shopping cart or walking from your car and the next moment you are on the ground. Even if you didn’t need an ambulance or go to the doctor right away, your injuries are real and you may have legal recourse.
The Burlington personal injury law firm of Smith Magram Michaud Colonna, P.C., holds businesses, property owners and government entities accountable for parking lot hazards resulting in injury. Our experienced attorneys handle premises liability claims in Burlington County, Camden County and surrounding New Jersey, and we invite you to contact us for a free consultation.
Premises Liability Claims For Parking Lot Injury
Parking lot slip-and-falls are most frequent in winter, but we are busy all four seasons investigating parking lot accident claims arising from:
- Snow and ice accumulation
- Potholes and pavement cracks
- Broken curbs or parking bumpers
- Inadequate lighting
- Carts or obstructions
The claims can be complicated, depending on the circumstances and who is responsible for upkeep of the parking lot. We will pursue parking lot injury claims against apartment complexes, grocery stores, shopping centers, retail stores, bars and restaurants, hospitals, or owners of for-profit parking lots and parking ramps.
If the parking lot is owned or operated by a city, township or school district, it is critical to contact an attorney right away. To pursue compensation from a governmental entity in New Jersey, you must file notice of claim within 90 days of the accident. This preserves your right to later bring a lawsuit for specific damages.
Committed To Your Fair Treatment And Compensation
Businesses, property owners and their insurance carriers may not take your claim seriously or may deny liability. Our lawyers know how to document the dangerous condition and establish liability. After a pothole injury or slip-and-fall in a parking lot, you should notify the management to report the incident, even if your injuries seem minor. Then you should make sure you seek medical attention and talk to an attorney before accepting any settlement or giving a statement to an insurance adjuster.
We will deal with the insurance company to guard your rights and get the most favorable recovery. There are no upfront attorney fees for our involvement on your behalf. We take cases on a contingency fee, which means we get paid only if we recover compensation for you.
