Injuries and Assaults in Parking Garages
Parking facilities offer the ability for many visitors to park in a relatively small and confined space. This benefit is also their downfall. Accidents and injuries are bound to happen as countless cars frequent parking garages, decks, and lots each day. The majority of people fear the inevitable ding in their side door or bumper being tapped, but as we travel through the maze of cars and concrete the reality of one’s physical well-being being harmed is very real. While most drivers know that parking lots can certainly be the scene of minor car damage, bodily injury is actually one of the more serious threats that can occur within the confines of these convenient parking structures.
Parking Garage Accident Lawyers
Parking facility owners have a legal responsibility to maintain the garage, lot, or deck in a reasonably safe way. If the owner who controls the parking area fails to keep the facility safe, then they can become liable for any injuries that occur as a result of negligence. For example, if a parking lot doesn’t have sufficient security and you are attacked in the lot, the lot owners or occupier may be help responsible. If you or a loved one suffer a parking lot injury, it is important to understand your legal rights and act accordingly. Parking garage, lot or deck accidents may occur due to:
- Improper markings or traffic signals on the parking lot
- Poor parking garage design leading to blind spots
- Poorly designed traffic flow patterns
- Slip and fall accidents
- Improper security
- Inefficient lighting
- Negligent maintenance of the parking garage, lot or ramp
- Negligent maintenance of sidewalks and stairs leading to parking facility
- Injuries from falling objects
