PARKING LOT INJURIES AND PREMISES LIABILITY CLAIMS

Premises liability refers to the responsibility (and failure of responsibility) of property owners to maintain a safe environment for visitors. In the case of shopping center and mall parking lots, our office frequently receives inquires regarding injuries, and the potential for a personal injury claim against the property owner.

SUING A DRUNK DRIVER FOR ACCIDENT INJURIES

According to New Jersey law, an individual is considered to be driving under the influence when they are found to have a blood alcohol concentration above .08%. DUI/DWI charges are not criminal charges, rather traffic violations. However, in the case that a drunk driver causes injury to another driver or pedestrian, the drunk driver may face criminal charges, and the injured party may be able to file a civil lawsuit against the drunk driver in order to recover compensation for their medical expenses, lost income, and potentially even their pain and suffering.
