What is New Jersey’s storm in progress doctrine?

As a New Jersey resident, you are all too familiar with the havoc Mother Nature can wreak on streets, sidewalks, parking lots and outdoor stairs during the winter. Getting where you need to go when you need to be there often is challenging, if not downright hazardous. Your risk of falling on a slippery sidewalk or sliding on an icy road becomes greater with each snowflake or sleet pellet that hits the ground.

Who is responsible when you slip and fall?

As a New Jersey resident, you know how hazardous outdoor walking can be, particularly during the winter months when the possibility of snow- or ice-covered sidewalks and parking lots always exists. Should you happen to slip and fall, however, exactly who do you sue to recover your medical costs and other damages?

Slip-and-fall accidents can cause TBI

Slip-and-fall accidents can occur on most any property due to unsafe conditions involving a spill, ice or some other obstruction in the walkway.

In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries is falls, which make up over 40 percent of all TBI cases. Brain damage contributes to approximately 30 percent of all injury deaths, killing 138 people every day.
