How Do Parking Lot Accidents Happen?

Though you may not consider parking lots to be very dangerous, the fact of the matter is parking lot accidents occur every single day, and if you’ve been injured in one, you should strongly consider hiring a Manhattan slip and fall lawyer who can fight for the financial compensation you need to heal. Here are some of the questions you may have for our firm:

What are the most common causes of parking lot accidents?

Parking lot accidents can occur for a wide variety of reasons, though they are most commonly the result of parking lot owner negligence. That being said, parking lot owners are liable for ensuring their properties are safe for all who step foot on them, which is why if you’ve been injured due to unsafe parking lot conditions, there is a chance that you will have a valid personal injury claim. Some of the most common parking lot hazards are as follows:

  • Debris in the parking lot
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Unsafe sidewalks
  • Standing water
  • Potholes
  • Careless drivers

Steps to Take After Parking Lot Accidents

If you’ve been hurt in a parking lot accident, it is critical that you do everything in your power to document the incident, as you can use this evidence to help prove your personal injury claim at a later date. Some of the most useful forms of evidence are as follows:

  • Pictures of the unsafe parking lot conditions
  • Witness statements confirming your claim
  • Surveillance footage of your accident
  • A copy of the police report filed at the scene of your accident
  • Medical documents detailing the origin and extent of your injuries

How long will I have to sue after I’ve been hurt in New York City?

The statute of limitations for most premises liability claims in New York City is three years, which means that you should ensure you file your premises liability claim within three years of the date of your accident. Failure to do so will most likely result in you losing out on the financial compensation you truly need to heal. Our firm is ready to help you today.
