What You Should Know About Parking Lot Accidents in the Bronx

Most of us don’t consider parking lots to be particularly dangerous; after all, cars travel at low speeds and people only walk through them to their destination. However, when property owners are negligent, parking lots can be unsafe, and if you were recently injured because of unsafe parking lot conditions, you should speak with an experienced Bronx slip and fall attorney to learn more about parking lot accidents and how our firm can help if you were hurt in one.

Parking Lot Accidents in the Bronx & Their Causes | What to Know

Parking lot accidents can happen for several reasons. Sometimes, pedestrians or vehicles will collide with one another. However, in many cases, pedestrians will also sustain serious injuries in slip or trip and fall accidents because of unsafe parking lot conditions. There are several ways in which a parking lot can become unsafe, but some of the most common causes of parking lot accidents that we see are as follows:

  • Uneven pavement
  • Negligent signage
  • Dim lighting
  • Slippery surfaces due to snow or ice left uncleared
  • Debris in parking lots
  • Standing water

After a Parking Lot Accident

The first thing you should understand is that parking lot owners are responsible for keeping their parking lots safe for all who use them. Therefore, if you can prove that you were injured as a direct result of the parking lot owner’s negligence, you should have a valid personal injury claim. To win a personal injury claim, however, you and your attorney will have to uncover evidence to satisfy the burden of proof. Some of the most helpful types of evidence include surveillance footage of an accident, medical documents, witness statements, and more. Our legal team is here to help in any way we can.

Recovering Financial Compensation

Once someone wins a personal injury claim, they will receive financial compensation to help them cope with the economic and non-economic damages they’ve incurred as a result of their accident. This can include pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement or scarring, the cost of medical bills or lost wages from being unable to return to work, and more. If you need an attorney who is ready to fight for you when it counts, you’ve come to the right place.
