How Do Parking Lot Accidents Happen Most Frequently?

Accidents of all kinds happen virtually every single day here in New York City. Unfortunately, they can happen anyplace, and at any time. Though we don’t typically think of it, one of the most common places for accidents to occur is in parking lots. If you are someone who was recently injured in one, you’re most likely wondering whether you have a path to compensation. Please continue reading and reach out to a seasoned Bronx car accident attorney to learn more about parking lot accidents, their causes, and how our legal team can help you fight for the compensation you deserve and need to heal. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do parking lot accidents most commonly happen?

Parking lot accidents can happen for several reasons. In some cases, they are the result of negligent motorists who, for example, fail to check before backing out of a parking spot and end up striking a pedestrian as a result. In other cases, unsafe parking lot conditions may be to blame, such as weather-related hazards posing trip or slip and fall risks, dim lighting, inadequate surveillance, dangerous sidewalks in parking lots, negligent signage, and more. Even things such as standing water or potholes can result in serious injury. That said motorists are responsible for exercising care, and property owners are responsible for ensuring conditions are safe for those who use them. If you were hurt in a parking lot accident of any kind, you should strongly consider retaining the services of a competent attorney who can help you gather and present the evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof on your behalf. As long as we can do so, you should receive financial compensation to help you deal with the economic and non-economic damages you’ve incurred as a result of your accident.

When should I file my personal injury claim?

In New York City, victims of negligence are required to file their injury claims within what is known as the state’s statute of limitations. In New York, the statute of limitations is, in most cases, three years. This gives accident victims three years from the date of their injury to sue, depending on the circumstances of the case. If you wait any longer than three years, you will most likely permanently lose your right to sue. Our firm is prepared to help you today. All you need to do is give us a call or contact us online.
