Parking Lot Accidents in Manhattan | What You Need to Know

If you live in New York City, you know that parking lots are bustling with activity at all times. Unfortunately, this often means that they are unsafe in at least one respect. If you are someone who has recently sustained an injury in a parking lot accident due to no fault of your own, you most likely now require financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and more. Read on and reach out to our experienced Manhattan personal injury lawyer to learn more about parking lot accidents and how we can help you fight for the compensation you need.

How do most parking lot accidents happen?

Parking lot accidents can occur for many different reasons, though not unlike most other accidents, they are most commonly caused by negligence. However, in parking lots, there are many potential causes of accidents. For example, in many cases, people sustain injuries in parking lot accidents due to the negligence of a driver, and they may be stricken by that careless driver. In other cases, people can sustain serious injuries due to unsafe parking lot conditions, such as uneven pavement, insufficient lighting, lack of security, negligent signage, and more.

How do I know if I have a valid personal injury claim if I’m injured in a parking lot accident?

As long as our Manhattan personal injury lawyer can prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence, there is a very good chance that you will win your personal injury claim. This is known as satisfying the burden of proof. However, to do so, our firm will have to collect various forms of evidence, including pictures of the unsafe condition that caused your accident, surveillance footage of the accident, medical documents, police reports, witness testimony, and more.

What is the statute of limitations for parking lot accident injuries in New York State?

Every state has a statute of limitations in which the wrongly injured party will have to sue the negligent party for their injuries. In New York State, you will have to file your personal injury claim within three years of the date of your accident, in accordance with the state’s statute of limitations. Waiting any longer than three years will most likely result in you losing out on the compensation you deserve and need.
