Recovering Compensation Following a New York Parking Lot Accident

If you have recently been involved in a parking lot accident, especially as a pedestrian, there is a very good chance you are now severely injured as a result. If you were injured, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of your lost wages, medical bills, or any other injury-related damages. To learn more about your legal options going forward, please read on and reach out to our experienced firm today.

How are parking lot accidents caused?

Parking lot accidents can be caused by several different factors, and though sometimes, freak accidents happen, they are generally caused by either a negligent property owner or a negligent motorist. Parking lot owners must keep their property clear of debris, slippery surfaces, and any other potential safety hazard. When they fail to take certain safety precautions, disaster can ensue.

What are the most commonly sustained injuries in parking lot accidents?

Some of the injuries spawned by parking lot accidents are as follows:

  • Neck injuries
  • Pelvic injuries
  • Head trauma
  • Spinal injuries
  • Back trauma
  • Cracked ribs
  • Fractured or broken bones
  • Wrongful death

How do I know if I am eligible for compensation?

To recover financial compensation after a parking lot accident, your attorney must prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. In parking lot accidents, you will most likely be filing a premises liability lawsuit, however, if you were struck by a car in a parking lot accident, your attorney will seek to hold the negligent motorist accountable for his or her actions.

Proving your personal injury claim is not always easy, which is why you must hire an experienced attorney familiar with the claims process. Your attorney will obtain security camera footage of your accident, pictures of the hazardous parking lot conditions that caused your accident, medical documents, police reports, witness statements, and more to prove your claim.

What is the statute of limitations in New York State?

New York State’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years, which means you will have three years from the date of your accident to file your claim. If you fail to do so in the allotted time, you will be barred from suing. You must not wait. Our firm is ready to get the claims process started.
