How Common Are Parking Lot Car Accidents in Manhattan?

Car accidents occur in parking lots here in Manhattan virtually every single day. In fact, they are among the most common places where auto accidents occur. Typically, these are relatively low-speed collisions, though this does not mean that people aren’t sometimes seriously injured in them. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Manhattan car accident attorney to learn more about parking lot car accidents and how our legal team can help if you’ve been hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of parking lot car accidents?

Car accidents in parking lots happen for a variety of reasons. In some cases, negligent signage causes motorists to make mistakes and collide. In other cases, drivers fail to look before backing out of a spot and strike pedestrians or other vehicles as a result. In other cases, unsafe parking lot conditions, such as weather-related hazards going left uncleared away can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles, or dim lighting can prevent drivers from seeing pedestrians. In any case, if you were injured in a parking lot accident due to no fault of your own, there is a very good chance that you will qualify for financial compensation, but you’ll have to hire a competent personal injury lawyer who can take you through the process and prove your personal injury claim. Fortunately, you’re in the right place, and the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny is here to help.

Do I have to file a personal injury claim within a certain period of time?

Yes, you do. The timeframe in which you must file your personal injury claim is known as the statute of limitations, and here in New York State, the statute of limitations is, in most cases, three years, meaning you are required to file your injury claim within three years of the date your accident occurred. Waiting longer than three years will most likely result in you permanently losing your right to sue. Give us a call today so we can get working on your case.
