Get help finding the Right Premises Liability Lawyer for your case
Parking lots are not always as stable and safe people think. As people use them to park their cars regularly, parking lots degrade continuously. In addition, if a parking lot is improperly designed or structured, future accidents can occur. Anytime a person slips or falls in a parking lot he or she is at danger of suffering serious injuries.
Common Parking Lot Injuries:
Parking lot owners are required to make sure their parking lots are kept safe. If a parking lot owner does not properly maintain their parking lot and you are injured, they can be held negligent, under Premises Liability Law. A lot owner breaches their duty of care owed to parking lot users if they create, or allows to exist, a harm where injuries could be anticipated.
Injuries to pedestrians can be caused by potholes, uneven cement slabs, cracks in the pavement, improperly placed tire bumpers, dilapidated curbing, debris and even gravel.
An injury lawyer can establish liability between the injured party and the lot owner. They can gather evidence of routine parking lot inspections, recent maintenance and prove a causal link between the negligence of the parking lot owner and the person's injury. Parking lot owners might try to negotiate a lower settlement to avoid litigation, but an injury attorney can fight to make sure you receive the settlement you deserve for medical expenses, pain and suffering, future treatment and lost wages.
