What Happens if I’m Injured in a Parking Lot in Brooklyn?

Parking lots are generally considered safe, and most of us do not worry about sustaining a serious injury in one. Unfortunately, however, parking lots can become dangerous when parking lot owners fail to ensure that they are safe for all who use them or when drivers fail to exercise caution when backing into and out of spots, or otherwise navigating the parking lot. Conditions such as potholes, standing water, and unsafe weather conditions left uncleared can cause serious accidents. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Brooklyn personal injury lawyer to learn more about how our firm can help if you’ve been injured in a parking lot. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What should I do if I’m injured in a parking lot?

If you’ve been injured in a parking lot, it is imperative that you document the incident–as long as you are physically capable of doing so. You can document the incident by calling the police (especially if you are critically injured) and ensuring that you seek medical treatment immediately. You should also be sure to take pictures of the unsafe parking lot conditions that caused you to slip or trip and fall to begin with, as well as obtain witness contact information from anyone who saw the accident. They may corroborate your claim at a later date. Next, you should ensure that after you are treated in a hospital that you obtain medical documentation regarding your injuries. Finally, be sure to hire a knowledgeable Brooklyn personal injury lawyer who can gather and present all other evidence required to satisfy the burden of proof.

What is the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Brooklyn?

The statute of limitations is the timeframe in which you will have to file your personal injury claim. Every state has one, and in New York, the statute of limitations for premises liability claims is typically three years. This means that if you wait any longer than three years, you will most likely lose your right to sue. Further, you should understand that the sooner you file your claim, the better off you will be. Our firm is ready to guide you through every step of the claims process starting today–all you have to do is give us a call.
