Property owners and tenants owe a duty to ensure that the parking lots on those properties are safe for people to traverse. Unfortunately, property owners and tenants often fail to take precautions or undertake maintenance to correct defects and dangerous conditions in their parking lots. As a result, innocent visitors end up injuring themselves in parking lot slip and fall accidents. If you or a loved one have been injured in a parking lot slip and fall, you know that such a seemingly minor accident can result in severe injuries.

Our attorneys will investigate any relevant deeds, leases, and maintenance contracts to determine who is responsible for the upkeep of the parking lot and thus who is liable to you for your injuries.
Owners and occupants of property have a legal duty to keep their premises, including any parking lots, reasonably safe for visitors. The extent of this duty depends on the status of the visitor — a visitor’s status depends on their authorization to be on a property and their purpose for being on the property. The law recognizes three categories of visitors:

FAQ: How do I determine who is responsible for maintaining the parking lot where my fall occurred?
Because many businesses and commercial establishments rent their buildings (and adjoining parking lots) from someone else, it may be necessary to evaluate the property lease to determine which party is responsible for maintenance of the parking lot. In addition, if that party has contracted with a maintenance company for upkeep, the terms of that contract may determine the maintenance company’s potential liability.
FAQ: What if the other party is claiming that my slip and fall occurred because I wasn’t proceeding carefully enough?
New Jersey utilizes a doctrine known as comparative fault. Therefore, even if you are partially at fault for your slip and fall, you may still be entitled to recover some compensation. In addition, depending on your status on the property, the property owner or occupier may still have had a duty to warn you of any non-obvious dangerous conditions in the parking lot.
