Jones Beach on Long Island: Know the Risks
As with any park area, there are risks in visiting Jones Beach and partaking in the activities there. Park administrators and businesses operating inside the park are responsible for maintaining their property, equipment, and services for the protection of visitors. When the negligence, misconduct, or recklessness of park administrators, staff within the park, or other visitors results in injury, we pursue justice for those affected.
What might make the owners of Jones Beach liable for your injuries?
- Inattentive lifeguards and other staff
- Trip and fall hazards such as cracked pavement, neglected or poorly designed walkways, and more
- Unmarked stairs or curbs
- Slip and fall hazards including wet floors
- Insufficient lighting
- Missing handrails
- Boating accidents, including motorboats, kayaks, sailboats, etc. (in this case, the other party in your boating accident would likely be your liable party)
- Poor equipment maintenance
- Poor sports complex and field upkeep
- Poor sanitation or food handling practices in food service areas
- Failure on the part of park staff or administration to properly and immediately remedy any safety hazard once they have been made aware of it
Establishing Liability for Your Jones Beach State Park Injury
In many cases, personal injury cases are not due to a single incident of carelessness, but a combination of factors that contribute to an injury or death. Regardless of how the injury occurred, you have a right to compensation when the negligence or recklessness of another party was a contributing factor.
We investigate your case to determine liability and gather evidence to support your claim. Our team evaluates each case to determine the following:
Duty of Care
We prove that the liable party had a duty to maintain park property or otherwise act in a safe manner or clearly warn visitors of the hazard.
Breach of Duty
We prove the liable party failed to uphold their responsibility due to careless, reckless, or negligent action or inaction.
Because the at-fault party’s negligence caused your injury, they are liable for all resulting damages.
We identify and seek compensation for all economic and noneconomic damages, including:
- Emergency transport and medical treatment
- Medical tests and imaging
- Hospitalization and physician care
- Medication, medical devices, and mobility aids
- Accessibility modifications to your home or car
- Lost future income and benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Cost of future treatment and care
- Diminished quality of life
- Future treatment, surgery, medication, and care costs
If your loved one died in a Jones Beach accident, we will file a wrongful death claim to recover for all the terrible losses that resulted from this tragedy.
You do not have to navigate the system alone. We are compassionate advocates for the injured and will fight for the compensation you deserve. Call 516-932-0400 today for your free case consultation with Friedman & Simon, L.L.P.
