Who is liable for an injury in a parking lot?
Owners of property are responsible for maintaining their property and ensuring
that there are no dangerous or hazardous conditions on the property. This
is true for commercial properties such as grocery stores, malls, and restaurants.
While the owners are required to keep the inside of their property safe,
they are also responsible for the safety of the parking lot and other
outdoor walking areas. Property owners are required to take reasonable
precautions in making sure that the area is safe.
This includes reasonable periodic inspections of the area and rectifying
any dangerous conditions that might have developed. Unfortunately, many
property owners are warned multiple times about a dangerous condition
in their parking lot, yet they continuously fail to fix it. If a property
owner’s carelessness caused you to fall in their parking lot, you
should consider filing a Brooklyn
personal injury lawsuit to compensate you for your injuries.
There are many potential hazards in a parking lot. Ramps, unmarked curbs,
steps and stairs, inadequate lighting, and unattended ice patches can
all cause an unsuspecting patron to suffer a serious fall injury. These
types of conditions can be easily prevented if a property owner acts responsibly
in maintaining and inspecting their parking lots.
Seek the Full Compensation You Need
While some fall injuries heal rapidly, other can be serious, painful, and
permanent injuries. A fall on pavement is far more dangerous than a fall inside a store because
the paved surface is hard and unforgiving and can cause serious broken
bones and abrasions. Some common injuries in a fall accident include broken
bones, abrasions and lacerations, muscular sprains and strains, and
neck injuries. The wrists, hips, arms, legs, and knees are particularly susceptible
to abrasions and broken bones when they impact with the hard pavement.
In some extreme cases, the victim of the fall suffers a head injury when
their head strikes the pavement or another hard structure. Head injuries
can be serious and even life-threatening injuries. All of the common injuries
from a slip-and-fall in a parking lot require extensive healing time,
medical attention, and sometimes surgery and physical therapy. If you
have suffered any of these injuries, you should not have to bear the burden
of your medical treatment and pain and suffering alone.
