The holiday season is now upon us, and with it so are the crowds at the shopping malls and grocery stores, the additional motorists on the roadways, and the multitude of visitors to the New York metropolitan area. While this is a special time of year in a unique place, it is also a time when New Jersey / New York personal injury accidents are more likely to happen.
Retail and grocery store shoppers should be mindful when in crowded malls and stores where store owners may not have the resources to effectively identify and remediate dangerous conditions that can cause slip and fall accidents. In addition, drivers on the roadways should be careful, especially at nighttime, given the many holiday parties that take place during this time of year and the higher incidences of drinking and driving. Be mindful not only of your driving, but also the driving of the motorists around you in order to avoid New Jersey / New York automobile accidents. Finally, take it slow in large, crowded areas and be sure to plan your travel routes ahead of time.
