Contrary to popular belief, parking lot accidents can have serious physical, emotional, and financial damage to those injured. As a result, an injured party may want to seek legal compensation to help recover damages for their burdens. Give our firm a call today to learn more and speak with a skilled New York City & Westchester County slip and fall lawyer to discuss your options.
What steps should I take after a parking lot accident in New York?
There are several measures you will want to take after a parking lot accident injury. First, you should call 911 emergency. As you wait for first responders and assuming you are able, you should gather and document as much evidence as you can. This evidence includes all the insurance and contact information for the parties involved, pictures and videos of injuries, property damage, and the accident scene as a whole. In addition to keeping these for your records, you should share this information with the police and, also your attorney. Before you leave the scene, ask for a copy of the police report.
What are the most common causes of parking lot accidents in New York?
Whether it’s unsafe conditions and careless drivers, parking lots offer several hazards to pedestrians. The most common causes of parking lot accidents in New York include the following:
- Inadequate pavement striping
- Potholes or cracks
- Lack of signage
- Poor lighting
- Puddles, snow, and ice
- Distracted drivers
- Disregard signs and traffic signals
- Failure to yield
If you or a loved one were injured as a result of any of the above-mentioned causes, do not hesitate to reach out to our firm today to discuss the details of your case and your legal options with an experienced New York City & Westchester County personal injury attorney.
How can a personal injury lawyer help you?
Keep in mind that these hazards are not merely small problems; they can be potentially deadly, particularly for older adults or young children. While you are able to account for your own actions and cautiousness, you can’t account for another person’s negligence. No matter what your share of the fault is, you should not have to seek compensation on your own. A skilled New York City personal injury attorney will have the proper time, resources, and knowledge to obtain the damages you need to pay for medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of earning ability, and more. More than just protecting your economic future, you will hold reckless individuals accountable, perhaps dissuading another person from going through what you have gone through.
