IS THE OWNER OF THE PARKING LOT RESPONSIBLE?
The parking lot owner is not automatically responsible. To recover compensation, you must show that the property owner was negligent and this negligence led to your injury. This area of law is known as premises liability.
After an accident occurs, the property owner may make repairs to correct the unsafe condition or place warnings that were not there before. The sooner you contact our lawyers, the sooner we can collect and preserve the evidence we need to prove your case. Photographs of the accident scene, footage from video cameras and witness statements can help prove liability.
Here are examples of negligence that may lead to a personal injury suit:
- Cracked or broken concrete that creates a tripping hazard
- Structural collapses
- Buildup of ice or snow
- Inadequate lighting
- Inadequate security
- Being hit by a car
