In addition to navigating other cars and pedestrians and trying to find an open spot, making your way through a parking lot can pose a variety of hazards even after you’ve safely exited your vehicle. Many of these safety concerns stem from the parking lot owner’s failure to either design or properly maintain the premises or to warn visitors of any dangers posed by unsafe conditions. Some of the most common hazards include:
- Poor or no lighting
- Improper traffic flow design
- Inadequate physical security measures, like attendants and gates
- Unsafe sidewalks, rams and stairwells
- Blind spots
- Failure to remove snow, ice and other obstructions
These and other unsafe conditions may not only lead to a wide variety of accidents, but also may result in severe injury and even death.Premises Liability Lawsuits
State law requires property owners – businesses, government agencies, landlords – to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition and allows them to be held legally liable in the event that their failure to do so results in an injury to visitors and others. The law also holds property owners responsible for any injuries caused by hazards on the premises of which the owner knew or should have known. The damages available in these “premises liability” cases include: doctor and other medical bills, property damage, missed wages, and pain and suffering.
In order to successfully sue a property owner for premises liability, an injured person must establish not only that the owner failed to properly maintain the parking lot or other area of the property, but also that this failure caused the person’s injury. That means providing a comprehensive evidentiary record that shows the full extent of your injuries, their expected duration, and how they were caused.Our Lawyers Can Help You
