How can parking lot accidents happen?

Parking lot accidents can happen for a wide variety of reasons, though they are most frequently a result of some sort of negligence. Car-on-car collisions often happen in parking lot accidents, pedestrians are often struck by cars in parking lot accidents, and, finally, pedestrians are often injured as a result of unsafe parking lot conditions in slip and fall accidents. If you were injured as a result of another party’s negligence, there is a good chance you qualify for compensation.

What should I do if I am injured in a parking lot accident?

If you are injured in a parking lot accident, the first thing you need to do is to call the police. Your health and safety are paramount, and they will send an ambulance to the scene of the accident. From here, you should ask the driver for his or her insurance information, or, if you were injured due to unsafe property conditions, you should take pictures of those conditions and inform the property owner that you have been injured. Once you are treated at a hospital, ask your doctor for medical documentation pertaining to your injuries and retain the services of an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney who can help fight for the compensation you deserve and need.

How long will I have to sue someone for an injury in the state of New Jersey?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New Jersey is, generally two years, giving the wrongly injured, under most circumstances, two years from the date of their accident to take legal action against the party responsible for their injuries. Do not make the mistake of waiting for your injuries to heal on their own, for if you wait past the way-year limit, you will most likely be barred from suing. Our firm is here to help you through the claims process ahead–all you have to do is ask. Give us a call today to learn more about what we can do for you.
