Parking Lot Accidents in Queens | What You Need to Know

Parking lots are one of the most mundane aspects of everyday life. Unfortunately, they can also become very dangerous when property owners fail to account for the safety of others. Please read on and reach out to our experienced Queens personal injury attorney to learn more about parking lot accidents, what you should do after being hurt in one, and how our firm can help you through every step of the claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of parking lot accidents?

Parking lot accidents can happen for many different reasons, though they are generally the result of parking lot hazards. Certain parking lot hazards, such as standing water, potholes, insufficient security, poor lighting, and weather-related hazards left unattended all can cause individuals to slip or trip and fall and become seriously injured. Generally, parking lot owners are responsible for ensuring their parking lots are safe for all, and when they fail to do so and someone is injured, they may be held liable in a personal injury claim.

What should I do if I am injured in a parking lot?

If you are injured in a parking lot accident, as long as you are physically capable, you should do the following:

  1. Call the police to the scene of the accident and notify the property owner that you have been injured.
  2. Obtain contact information from any witnesses of your accident.
  3. Take pictures of the unsafe parking lot condition that caused your accident before the property owner has a chance to clear it away.
  4. Receive immediate medical care, and ask your doctor for all medical documentation regarding the origin and extent of your injuries.
  5. Speak with an experienced Queens personal injury attorney who can work to obtain all additional evidence needed to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence.
