What to Know About Accidents Caused by Inadequate Lighting

Many people are unaware of just how dangerous an area with insufficient lighting can be. Typically, property owners are legally obligated to ensure their properties are safe for all who use them. One of the ways they can fail to live up to this responsibility is by having inadequate lighting. If you were recently injured due to inadequate lighting on someone else’s property, you should strongly consider speaking with an experienced Bronx slip and fall attorney as soon as you can. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What accidents can insufficient lighting cause?

Insufficient lighting can lead to several very serious accidents. For example, if a parking lot is poorly lit, it may prevent a pedestrian from seeing certain safety hazards and cause him or her to slip or trip and fall. In other cases, poor lighting in parking lots can prevent cars from seeing pedestrians, causing collisions that seriously injure any unsuspecting pedestrian. Insufficient lighting can also allow for certain crimes to occur, such as muggings, which often also end in serious injury. Often, insufficient lighting in stairways can also cause serious trip and fall accidents. If you are someone who has been injured due to insufficient lighting, you may have a valid personal injury claim.

What should I do if I’m hurt in such an accident?

If you are injured in an accident due to insufficient lighting, you should first call the police to the scene and ensure they send an ambulance so your injuries can be treated. If you have a phone with a flash, you should try taking pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident. You should also as any witnesses of your accident for their contact information so they can corroborate your claim at a later date. Once you are treated at the hospital and receive all medical documentation regarding your injury, you should hire an experienced Bronx slip and fall lawyer as soon as you can.

Is there a time limit on how long I can sue for an injury in New York?

There is. In New York State, anyone who has been wrongfully injured will typically have three years from the date of their injury to sue the liable party. That being said, the quicker you bring your claim to our attention, the better off you may be. Our firm is prepared to begin the claims process on your behalf today.
