Parking lot accidents can be serious. If you were hurt in one, you will need to retain the services of one of our experienced Bergen County personal injury attorneys today.

What are the common causes of parking lot accidents in New Jersey?

There are a number of causes of parking lot accidents, however, most of them are a result of a negligent parking lot owner. For instance, when parking lot owners do not make sure that all potholes are filled, it can result in people tripping and falling. Additionally, slippery surfaces are another factor that can cause parking lot accidents. In the event that a negligent property owner fails to remove or take care of slippery surfaces, for example, snow or black ice, within the legally admissible timeframe, people can become severely injured.

It is also important to recognize that parking lot accidents are not always a property owner’s fault, in some instances, patrons or pedestrians are struck by oncoming, negligent drivers who were not paying attention. If you were hurt in a parking lot as a result of a negligent property owner or driver, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Contact our firm today to discuss your legal options with our skilled legal team.

What are types of injuries can be sustained after a parking lot accident?

Those injured in parking lot accidents can face severe lifelong injuries. Some of the most common types of injuries can include cracked skulls or head trauma, spinal trauma, psychological damage, broken or fractured bones, and more. If you were hurt in any of these injuries, you will most likely be entitled to financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, in-home care, and any other burdens you have faced as a result of your injury.

Can I pursue legal action?

In order to qualify for financial compensation, you will need to prove that you were hurt as a result of another party’s negligence. If you were injured as a result of hazardous property conditions, rather than a negligent motorist, you will most likely file a premises liability lawsuit against a negligent property owner. In order to successfully establish your claim, one of our Bergen County slip and fall accident attorneys will be able to help you recover security camera footage, medical documents, witness statements, police reports, and more.


When someone is injured due to another party’s negligence, it is only right that they receive the justice they deserve. As a victim, your only job is to call us, and we will take it from there. Please, do yourself a favor and do not wait. If you or someone you know was injured in an accident and is seeking financial compensation, contact the legal team at McNerny & McAuliffe today.
