Slip-and-Fall Injuries on Black Ice or Melted Snow

If you suffered injury in a slip-and-fall accident, Fort Lee snow and ice injury attorney Jae E. Lee can evaluate your case and take prompt action. The attorneys of Jae Lee Law have recovered compensation in snow and ice accidents and other unsafe premises accidents across New Jersey.

Hackensack Snow and Ice Injury Attorneys
Failure to clear walkways in a reasonable time is considered negligence under New Jersey's premises liability law. But it is not enough to simply shovel snow after a storm. If the ownership or management does an inadequate job, the snow can melt and re-freeze into patches of black ice, which are even more dangerous. Thus, many of the worst injuries occur not on the day of a storm but a day or two later.
We investigate swiftly to capture photos of the unsafe condition and talk to witnesses or other people who slipped. We work to document negligence such as:
- Failure to clear snow or ice from walkways and steps
- Failure to cover the shoveled walk with salt/sand
- Piling snow in a negligent manner
- Slippery puddles of melted snow in entryways
- Failing to create safe passage for disabled persons within 48 hours of snowfall under New Jersey's Snow Removal Law
