If you suffered a fall in a parking lot, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Fall accidents are serious accidents that can cause painful and permanent injuries to the victims. If your parking lot fall injury was caused by the property owner’s negligence, you may have a legal right to be compensated for your pain and suffering. One of the Brooklyn premises liability lawyers at Belushin Law Firm can help you with your claim.
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 back 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.
