Snow & Ice Hazards

Premises Liability Lawyers Protecting Your Rights

Commercial property owners can't control the weather, but they are still expected to take all reasonable steps during and after a snowstorm to remove snow and treat all icy conditions. This is an essential part of protecting visitors and clients while running a business which many business owners fail to do. You may be entitled to compensation if you were injured on a walkway, steps, or in a parking lot. Our Woodbridge personal injury lawyers of Palmisano & Goodman, P.A., have a long record of premises liability settlements and verdicts, including recoveries for clients who fell on snow or ice.


Our Woodbridge premises liability lawyers offer a free case evaluation to explore your possible claim for damages. If you slipped on snow or ice, call us today at (732) 709-4400 to schedule an appointment.


Ice Accident Injury Lawyers in New Jersey

There is no precise rule about property owners' obligations for removal of snow and ice. Every accident must be considered on a case-by-case basis. Our firm has brought successful claims against Wal-Mart, ShopRite, and other major chains for neglected maintenance of parking lots and walkways. We have also sued owners of retail stores, restaurants, apartment complexes, and other businesses.

  • Scenarios in which the owner may be held liable for snow and ice injuries include:
  • Failing to shovel snow from a walkway.
  • Partial removal creating an uneven surface.
  • Failing to put sand or salt on icy walks or steps.
  • Black ice from improper placement of downspouts.
  • Puddles of melting snow in entryways.

Slip and falls resulting from accumulation of snow or ice often cause serious and disabling injuries:

  • Head trauma
  • Broken hip
  • Broken leg
  • Fractured tailbone
  • Back injuries
  • Knee and ankle injuries

Pursuit of Full Compensation for Fall Accidents
