Can I Sue if I’m Injured in a Parking Garage?

Parking garages are, sometimes, unsafe. Unfortunately, these safety hazards can result in serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a parking garage, please don’t hesitate to contact a Bronx slip and fall lawyer from The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny for help. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of parking garage injuries?

Parking garage injuries can occur under a wide range of circumstances, but some of the most common hazards and causes are as follows:

  • Poor lighting, contributing to diminished visibility.
  • Slippery surfaces, especially during adverse weather conditions.
  • Inadequate signage, leading to confusion or accidents.
  • Structural defects, including potholes or uneven surfaces.
  • Malfunctioning gates or barriers.
  • Insufficient security measures, increasing the risk of assault.
  • Debris or obstacles that are not promptly removed or cordoned off.
  • Elevator or escalator malfunctions.
  • Carbon monoxide buildup from poor ventilation.
  • Ice accumulation, particularly in open-air sections.

How do I know if I have a valid injury case?

To have a valid personal injury claim, you will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. As long as you can prove that the property owner either knew or should have reasonably known about the unsafe parking garage conditions, failed to fix them timely, and that you were injured as a result, you should have a valid personal injury claim.

How do I prove I was injured due to another party’s negligence?

Evidence is paramount. Documenting the scene with photographs, securing witness testimonies, and obtaining medical records forms the bedrock of a strong legal claim. Further, comparing the circumstances of your accident to established legal precedents within New York’s judicial system can bolster your case. Engaging a seasoned personal injury lawyer who understands the nuances of New York City’s legal landscape is crucial.

How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in New York?

In New York State, accident victims typically have three years from the date of their accident to file a personal injury claim. Waiting longer than three years will most likely result in you being permanently time-barred from suing.
