Parking Lot Injury Lawsuit

Most people have had the experience of walking through a parking lot at night. But what happens when you fall and become injured in a parking lot because of broken pavement or a loose wheel stop?

If you have been harmed following an accident on another party’s property, you may have the option of filing a parking lot injury lawsuit. In some cases, the owner of the parking lot may be financially liable for the costs and expenses arising from your injury. 

Property owners have a duty to provide a reasonably safe environment for their visitors and customers. When someone’s negligence has resulted in physical and financial damage to you, you can seek compensation with the help of a legal professional.

The accomplished team at Morgan and Morgan will gladly assess your claim and help you file a parking lot lawsuit, if applicable. You should not be stuck with the costs and losses from a parking lot injury you did not cause.

When parking lot owners fail to abide by a standard duty of care, they can be held legally liable for any resulting damage. Make sure to speak with an accomplished premises liability lawyer to pursue the financial compensation you are rightfully owed.  

At Morgan and Morgan, we have years of experience successfully pursuing parking lot injury lawsuits. We know what it takes to win a premises liability claim, and we will fight tirelessly on your behalf.

FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • What Are Premises Liability Claims?

    Premises liability claims typically involve someone becoming injured while on another person’s property. In most instances, these civil claims revolve around the legal concept of “negligence.” 

    Some of the most common types of premises liability injuries are:

    • Slip and fall injuries
    • Dog or other animal attacks
    • Trip and fall injuries
    • Falling into swimming pools

    Premises liability claims can also arise after someone is injured in a parking lot. Suppose that you tripped and fell in the parking lot of a store. Who can be held legally responsible? 

    A knowledgeable legal expert can review the facts of your situation and help you file a parking lot injury lawsuit. Successful premises liability lawsuits typically require the plaintiff to prove the property owner was negligent.  

    Proving negligence in a civil claim involves providing evidence of the following four elements:

    Duty of Care

    The claimant must show that the parking lot owner owed them a certain standard of care. This can include regular maintenance and upkeep of the parking lot.

    Breach of Duty

    The plaintiff in a parking lot injury lawsuit must provide evidence that the lot owner breached their duty of care. If a parking lot features cracked and uneven pavement, the owner may be held accountable for the falling accidents that occur as a result. 

    It is important to note that the plaintiff must show that the property owner should have reasonably known the parking lot was in an unsafe condition. 

    Causation

    The injury victim must prove the lot owner’s breach of duty was the cause of the damage. If your injury was unrelated to the parking lot owner’s breach of duty, you would not be entitled to financial compensation.

    Actual Harm

    The property owner’s negligence must have resulted in actual harm for a legal claim to be successful. If you were in an accident while on another person’s property, but it did not result in any physical or economic harm to you, you cannot claim damages. 

    The knowledgeable experts at the firm of Morgan and Morgan will help you explore all of your legal options. You should not pay the costs arising from an injury for which another person is responsible.

  • What Are Common Types of Parking Lot Injury Lawsuits?

    Unbeknownst to most people, parking lot accidents are relatively common. This is because there are many vehicles in parking lots, and the spaces they navigate can be very tight.

    Not every parking lot accident involves a motor vehicle, however. Some of the most common parking lot accidents and injuries involve:

    Negligent Driving

    When a motorist is not paying attention in a parking lot, they may cause a collision or injuries. Pedestrians typically feel safe when walking through parking lots. 

    Because of this, they may take fewer precautions when walking. However, motorists sometimes feel less concerned about following the traffic signs when driving in a parking lot. 

    The lack of precautions on the part of both drivers and pedestrians can result in parking lot accidents. If you have been struck by a vehicle when walking in a parking lot, it is critical to speak with a skilled personal injury attorney about your case. 

    Pavement Hazards

    Falling accidents are highly likely when pavement surfaces are uneven. If the pavement of a parking lot has become cracked, fractured, or contains potholes, owners are responsible for repairing it. 

    Also, debris or other objects may lie in the walkways of parking lots intended for pedestrians. If a pavement hazard has caused you to become injured in a falling accident, speak with an attorney.

    Weather Conditions

    Inclement weather is one of the most common contexts in which falling accidents occur. When the surface of a parking lot becomes wet or icy, pedestrians are more likely to slip. 

    Also, wet and slick surfaces make automotive collisions more likely. If you have been injured in a parking lot as a result of wet or slick pavement, speak with an attorney to explore your options for recovery. 

    Lack of Appropriate Lighting

    Because parking lots contain many hazards, appropriate lighting is crucial. When a parking lot has poor lighting, pedestrians and motorists are at a higher risk of accidents and injuries. 

    For instance, trip and fall accidents can result from a pedestrian being unable to see objects in their path. Similarly, motorists may collide with a pedestrian or another vehicle if visibility is too low.

    Unclear Traffic Signage

    Parking lots need to have clear signs to direct the flow of traffic. In some cases, parking lots have confusing or inadequate signage. 

    Property owners are responsible for placing signs and signals in ways that help ensure the safety of those in the parking lot. Traffic collisions and pedestrian accidents may result when signs are unclear or in the wrong place.

  • What Damages Can I Recover in Parking Lot Injury Lawsuits?

    When you have been injured in a parking lot accident, you may face a wide range of financial and personal difficulties. These challenges are even more frustrating when another party’s negligence causes your injury. 

    Fortunately, accident victims have the right to seek financial compensation through parking lot injury lawsuits. With the help of one of the skilled attorneys at Morgan and Morgan, you can seek repayment for the losses that result from your parking lot injury. 

    The payments made as the result of a civil legal claim are known as “damages.” In most tort injury cases, victims can hope to recover both “economic” and “non-economic” damages.

    Economic Damages in Parking Lot Injury Claims

    This type of financial compensation is also known as “special” damages. Economic damage payments help victims recover from their direct monetary losses. 

    Most people underestimate the financial costs of a personal injury until it happens to them. Some of the common expenses that arise as the result of an accident or injury include: 

    • Medical treatment and prescription costs
    • Medical travel costs
    • Expected costs for ongoing medical care
    • Lost income and wages from missing work due to injury
    • Associated property damage, including vehicular replacement or repair
    • Long-term decreases in earning capacity

    Do not allow a property owner to undervalue the economic damages in your parking lot injury case. The legal team at the firm of Morgan and Morgan can help you calculate the special damages you are rightfully owed.

    Non-Economic Damages in Parking Lot Injury Claims

    Not all of the negative outcomes from a parking lot injury take the form of monetary losses. The most devastating consequences of an injury are usually not economic in nature.

    Payments for the intangible losses that injury victims face are called “non-economic” damages. These payments are provided by the at-fault party to compensate for losses, including:

    • Physical pain and suffering from the injury
    • Emotional damage, anguish, and distress
    • Loss of the ability to enjoy life
    • Depression and anxiety disorders
    • Embarrassment
    • Scarring and disfigurement
    • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

    The value of these losses is subjective and, therefore, difficult to calculate. Because of this, tightfisted insurance providers often devalue the general damages in a personal injury case. 
    For this reason, it is critical to have a skilled legal representative fighting for you. When you hire one of the parking lot injury lawyers at Morgan and Morgan, we will ensure that you pursue every dime to which you are rightfully entitled.

  • What Is the Statute of Limitations on Parking Lot Injuries?

    The “statute of limitations” is a state-level statute that sets a legal time limit for filing certain types of civil lawsuits. Because this time limit is determined by state law, the statute of limitations on parking lot injury cases will vary by location.

    Fortunately, the accomplished team at Morgan and Morgan represents clients across the country. To learn more about the legal deadlines for filing a civil claim in your state, schedule a free consultation with the knowledgeable attorneys at the firm of Morgan and Morgan.

  • How Do Contingency Fees Affect a Personal Injury Claim?

    One of the primary concerns many injury victims consider is the cost of legal representation. Many people believe hiring a skilled lawyer to represent them will not be financially feasible. 

    This view is mistaken. The compassionate lawyers at Morgan and Morgan know injury victims face mounting costs and expenses.

    That is why we operate based on contingency fees. With this approach, the cost of attorneys’ fees is deducted from the financial recovery from the case. 

    In other words, you will not pay a dime in legal fees until we recover the money you deserve. Contingency fees make it possible for every injury victim to pursue justice in their case.
