Parking Lot Injury, Or Parking Lot Accident, In Parking Garage
Parking lot injury claims are an issue of premises liability and are quite common in today’s society. Parking garages can pose a very dangerous risk for many people and may be full of dangerous hazards. If a parking garage is dimly lit, just getting out of your car could prove to be hazardous. Since they are not public property, they may be poorly maintained and unregulated.
If you are involved in a parking lot injury, or parking garage accident, you may need to contact an accident lawyer specialized in handling cases of premises liability to ensure that your rights are protected.
We understand that someone could be seriously and suddenly injured in a parking lot or parking garage. A motor vehicle could quickly maneuver in or out of a parking space and not notice a pedestrian or someone exiting their car. Because there a no traffic lights or traffic controls in a lot or a garage, many drivers believe that anything goes and may take risks that they would not take on a public street. Attorney Lawrence K. Land understands these risks and would be happy to speak to you about your case and give you a free legal evaluation.
Parking lot injury and similar types of accidents have continued to increase over the years as more parking garages have been constructed to accommodate the parking needs in urban areas. In these areas, property is very valuable and garages can accommodate more cars in the same amount of space that lots require. With this increase in garages, the increase in pedestrians getting hit or run over in them increases. If you, or a loved one, has been injured in a parking lot injury or parking garage injury, it may be in your best interest to contact an experienced accident lawyer.
