Parking Lot Slip and Fall

Brooklyn Parking Lot Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers

New York attorneys file lawsuits for poorly maintained parking lots

Whether it is a standalone parking lot or an extension of the property it serves, the property owner has a duty to maintain the area where visitors park in a reasonably safe condition. Accordingly, if you sustain an injury in a parking lot slip and fall accident, you might be entitled to compensation. The Brooklyn parking lot slip and fall lawyers at Goldberg Sager & Associates are determined to give New Yorkers they need to hold negligent defendants accountable. After reviewing the specific circumstances that led to the parking lot injury, we press for maximum compensation in a settlement or verdict.

Can parking lot slip and fall accidents be prevented?

Parking lots are subject to wear and tear, which can produce hazards for visitors. The law imposes a duty of reasonable care on the property owners who benefit financially from customers coming to park at their facilities. This duty means more than being reactive and clearing hazards that are readily apparent. Property owners must regularly inspect premises to discover new hazards. They must have protocols in place for responding in a timely manner with either an effective warning of the dangerous condition or removal of the hazard. A breach of this duty exposes property owners to liability for any harm resulting from accidents caused by the dangerous condition.

How our Brooklyn parking lot slip and fall lawyers help people injured in accidents

  • Conduct a thorough investigation
  • Assemble evidence that pinpoints liability
  • Consult with doctors and other experts on the extent of your injuries and economic losses

Compensation available for parking lot slip and fall victims

A slip on ice that should have been removed is a compensable accident. So is a fall at a shopping center parking lot caused by debris that should have been picked up. If you fell due to a property owner’s negligence, you are entitled to personal injury damages which can include these types of compensation:

  • Repayment of medical expenses
  • Reimbursement of lost wages
  • Damages for physical pain and mental suffering

The amount you recover depends on many factors, including the severity of your injuries, your prognosis for recovery and the strength of the evidence. Our legal team is determined to hold careless parking lot owners accountable for the harm they cause.
