The summer season in New Jersey means that boardwalks and beaches on the Jersey Shore are in full swing. With so many people visiting the shore, accidents on the boardwalk or beach are almost certain to occur.
Beaches and boardwalks in New Jersey may have all kinds of potential hazards, including:
Depending on the circumstances of a boardwalk or beach accident, parties that may have liability for injuries suffered in those accidents include:
To succeed in an injury case following a boardwalk or beach accident, you will need to establish another party’s liability under the law. Parties can have liability for accidents that are caused by man-made conditions, such as alterations to the conditions of property or unrepaired damage or wear and tear. However, parties usually not be held liable for boardwalk or beach accidents that are caused by natural hazards, such as ocean hazards, unless the hazard is foreseeable, not obvious to a visitor, and the liable party failed to warn the visitor of the hazard. For example, a local government may have liability for a beach accident when it had responsibility for notifying beachgoers of riptides or ocean conditions but failed to do so, or failed to post warnings of shark activity or other animal hazards.
Other man-made hazards, such as loose or uneven boards or upturned nails in boardwalks may result in liability where the condition of the boardwalk posed a hazard of an accident or an injury and the condition was either created by the party/parties responsible for the boardwalk or the condition existed long enough that diligent maintenance would have discovered and removed the hazard.
Finally, because boardwalks and beaches are owned and controlled by local, state, and federal governments, pursuing an injury claim is especially different due to legal immunities and special notice requirements applicable to the government. This makes it critical to speak to a personal injury attorney to discuss your legal rights and options if you were hurt in a boardwalk or beach accident.
