Ewing NJ Insufficient Lighting Injury Attorneys
Representing Personal Injury Victims in Mercer County, New Jersey
Under New Jersey law, property owners are required to take the appropriate measures to ensure that their premises are sufficiently illuminated. This legal obligation is critical to the safety of their patrons, visitors, employees, and others because insufficient lighting can lead to a variety of serious accidents, such as slip-and-fall’s, as well as increasing the likelihood of criminal activity. Whether you are in a parking lot, shopping mall, or grocery store, it is the responsibility of those who own these properties to protect you from potential hazards. If these individuals fail to fulfill their duties and you or someone you love is injured as a result, you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim to obtain compensation for medical expenses, loss of income, and other costs.

Insufficient Lighting Lawsuits in New Jersey
Under premises liability law, residential and commercial property owners have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of those on their properties. This includes preventing hazards such as ice and snow, as well as criminal behavior such as robberies, carjackings, and assaults.
Unfortunately, many property owners fail to take the necessary measures to maintain proper security and innocent victims suffer the consequences. For example, insufficient lighting can shield potential assailants from identification, making the opportunity to commit crimes more available. In addition, inadequate lighting can disguise potential hazards such as slippery surfaces, cracks, uneven pavement, and stairs or changes in elevation. This can leave unsuspecting people vulnerable to slip and falls and the devastating injuries that these accidents often cause.
Regardless of the specific incident caused by insufficient lighting, individuals who are injured are not left without recourse. New Jersey provides legal avenues through which these victims can obtain compensation for damages resulting from their injuries, including medical expenses, costs of rehabilitative care, and emotional trauma. With the assistance of a seasoned personal injury attorney, you or someone you love can hold negligent property owners responsible for the damage they have caused.
