Causes of parking lot accidents

There are many reasons a person can be injured in a parking lot.

  • Pavement issues
  • Weather conditions
  • Loose debris
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Insufficient security

Negligence

A common thread in personal injury cases is the need for the plaintiff to prove that negligence led to his or her serious injury. With a thorough investigation and the preservation of evidence for a case, a victim can have the best chance of recovering compensation for the impact of the accident. One’s need to prove a personal injury case is called the burden of proof. If you were injured in a parking lot, you would need to prove that the property owner or party responsible for the parking lot knew or should have reasonably known about the hazard and did nothing to address the issue.

Collecting evidence

If you are injured, it is in your best interest to collect evidence or have an attorney’s investigators quickly come to the scene to do so on your behalf. Always get medical attention. In doing so, details of your case are documents, including your injuries, the place the accident occurred, and the general time of the incident. If you are able, take pictures and collect the contact information of witnesses. If you are unable to do so, contact our firm to come to the scene as soon as possible to preserve evidence for you.

Compensation

Economic damages address the financial impact of the incident, including medical bills, lost wages, future earnings, and the loss of consortium. Noneconomic damages address the emotional impact of the accident, including pain and suffering.
