What You Need to Know About Parking Lot Accidents in the Bronx

Parking lots are frequently overcrowded and bustling with activity, so it is no secret why parking lot accidents are so common. Unfortunately, these accidents can often lead to very serious injuries. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Bronx personal injury lawyer to learn more about parking lot accidents and how our legal team can help if you’ve been wrongfully hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of parking lot accidents?

Parking lot accidents occur for a wide variety of reasons. At times, they occur between two vehicles. At other times, they occur between a vehicle and a pedestrian. In other cases, they can even occur when parking lot conditions are unsafe, causing some people to slip or trip and fall and sustain serious injuries. Some of the most common hazards in parking lots are as follows:

  • Standing water
  • Slippery liquids
  • Uneven pavement
  • Potholes
  • Negligent signage
  • Inadequate security

What should I do after an accident in a parking lot?

If you are injured in a parking lot accident, the first thing you should do is call the police and ensure that you receive medical treatment at once. Your health and well-being is the most important thing. If possible, while waiting for emergency services to arrive, you should take pictures of the unsafe parking lot conditions and ask anyone who saw your accident for their name, phone number, and email address. Once you are treated at a hospital, ensure that you receive a copy of any medical documentation/bills regarding your injuries. Finally, you should retain the services of an experienced Bronx slip and fall lawyer who can work to uncover all other evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim.

How long do I have to take legal action after an injury?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York is, typically, three years, which means that in most cases, you will only have three years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible for your injuries. Our legal team is prepared to assist you through every step of the claims process today.
