New Jersey Premises Liability Law Firm

Injuries Suffered on Walkways and in Parking Lots

In New Jersey, as in other states, the owner of residential or commercial property has a duty to maintain the premises so as to minimize the risk of injury to anyone legally on the property. This duty extends to all walkways and parking lots. An owner must either fix any problems that are known (or should reasonably be known) or must provide reasonable notice of the risks involved. When you have been hurt because a property owner failed to meet these requirements, you have a right to seek compensation for your losses. The office of Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, can help.

At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we have provided sound legal counsel to victims of personal injury in central New Jersey for more than 40 years. Though we have the skill to negotiate a settlement when doing so is in your best interests, we focus our efforts and energy on finding ways to win cases. We know the frustration you can experience when you are uncertain of the status of your case, and we pledge that we will answer all your calls and e-mails in a timely manner, keeping you fully informed of all developments in your case so you can make good decisions about how you want to proceed.

With a strong reputation for effective advocacy and thorough preparation, we get many of our new cases as referrals from other lawyers, or from former or existing clients.

Premises Liability Claims — Walkways and Parking Lots

We handle all matters related to claims based on negligence in the maintenance of walkways or parking lots. We will carefully investigate the facts and circumstances of your injury, looking to gather and preserve all evidence to support your claim. We will also be your voice in all hearings or proceedings, from depositions to settlement meetings to trial.

We represent people who have sustained a slip, trip and fall injury as a result of:

  • Cracked or broken pavement, icy sidewalks, snow or pooled water on a walkway, damaged sidewalk panels because of roots or ice, or potholes
  • Conditions in a parking lot or parking ramp, from ice and snow to mud or gravel, excessive slope, including sinkholes, potholes, cracks or other defects in asphalt, cement, pavement or other surfaces
