Causes of Parking Lot Accidents

Parking lot accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, negligent drivers are to blame. In other cases, pedestrians can sustain injuries due to dangerous parking lot conditions. Overall, some of the most common causes of parking lot accidents and injuries that our firm sees are as follows:

  • Dim or broken lights that create dark or shadowy areas
  • Slippery or uneven surfaces that cause trips or falls
  • Cracked or potholed pavement
  • Missing or faded signs that confuse or mislead drivers or pedestrians
  • Faulty or malfunctioning gates, barriers, or sensors that trap or injure people or vehicles
  • Loose or dangling wires, cables, or pipes that pose electrocution or fire hazards
  • Debris or trash left uncleared away, posting trip or slip and fall hazards to pedestrians
  • Spills or leaks of oil, gas, or other fluids that create slippery or flammable conditions
  • Snow or ice that accumulates on the ground or roofs
  • Puddles or floods that cover the pavement or submerge the vehicles
  • Plants or trees that overgrow, fall over, or drop leaves, which may pose a slip and fall hazard to unsuspecting pedestrians

Satisfying the Burden of Proof

After sustaining an injury in a pedestrian accident, it is important that you take the necessary steps to seek medical treatment and document how the accident happened. These steps can include:

  • Calling 911 to the scene.
  • Taking pictures of the unsafe parking lot conditions that caused you to trip or slip and fall.
  • Asking anyone who saw your accident happen for their contact information.
  • Notifying the store owner/property owner of your injury.
  • Getting treated at a hospital or doctor’s office the same day of your injury and keeping copies of all medical documentation pertaining to your injury.
  • Retain the services of a seasoned parking lot accident lawyer who can work to gather and present evidence on your behalf.

As long as we can prove you were injured due to dangerous parking lot conditions and no fault of your own, you should receive compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and compensation for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering or a loss of enjoyment of life.

Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations for most personal injury claims in New Jersey and Pennsylvania is two years, meaning accident victims will traditionally have two years from the date of their injury to file a personal injury claim. Waiting longer than this will likely result in you being barred from suing altogether.
