Pedestrians Have Rights In Parking Lots, Too

No one expects to get hurt in a parking lot – in theory, that’s where most of the cars are sitting at rest. But in practice, of course, parking lots are surprisingly dangerous places. They put pedestrians and cars in the same arena, and everyone is moving in unpredictable ways in a tight space.

On top of all the risks of moving vehicles, the surface of the parking lot itself can pose a serious risk to your safety. If the surface of the parking lot is uneven or not level, a person can easily trip or fall and suffer a serious injury. When an injury occurs, it’s worth investigating whether the property owner is liable for the harm you have suffered.

Parking lot owners, operators and managers have a legal obligation to keep their premises safe and up to code. When they fail to meet this obligation, you may be able to obtain financial compensation for their negligence.

At the Law Offices of Ira M. Perlman, P.C. & Robert D. Rosen, P.C., we have been successfully representing parking lot accident victims for more than 35 years, achieving outstanding settlements and verdicts on behalf of family members and loved ones who have needlessly suffered harm and losses due to dangerous conditions on parking lots belonging to retail stores, hotels and other businesses and institutions. We are here to help you. Call 212-668-0100 to schedule a free consultation.

What Does Negligence Mean In A Parking Lot?

Parking lots pose any number of risks to your physical safety. Some of the most common dangers include:

  • Bad lighting
  • Potholes
  • Broken pavement
  • Protruding objects
  • Missing utility covers
  • Ice
  • Poor drainage and puddles
  • Criminal activity

One key factor in your personal injury case may be whether an attendant or a security employee oversaw the parking lot. The lack of a security guard can itself be a form of negligence if the property owner has information indicating that the area is a high-risk zone for crime. If a security guard or attendant is on the scene, it matters whether they warned you about potential hazards before you encountered them.

Take Action After A Parking Lot Accident Or Injury

If you’ve been injured after tripping or falling or do to any of the above reasons in a parking lot, you have a right to seek compensation for the harm you’ve suffered. At the Law Offices of Ira M. Perlman, P.C. & Robert D. Rosen, P.C., we will help you assess your legal options and get the maximum compensation available in your case.
