Parking Lot Accidents
Many parking garages or lots are designed to provide convenient locations for people to leave their vehicles within walking distance of sports arenas, shopping malls, or other types of buildings. During some of their busiest times, there can be an increased likelihood of automobile collisions as people are entering or departing the lots, but people who parked there could also be more at risk of being victims of criminal activity during the slower times. Some of the most common incidents at parking lots or garages in Southeastern Pennsylvania include:
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Other Violent Crimes
People may be attacked by criminals in parking lots and have automobiles and other valuables stolen. In other accidents, victims can suffer devastating head, neck, or spinal cord injuries that lead to excessive medical bills and prevent them from being able to return to work.
The owners of parking garages and lots have an obligation to keep their premises as safe as possible for all users. This means maintaining adequate signage to reduce motor vehicle collisions and providing competent security to prevent crime and respond to emergencies. When the owner of a parking lot or garage fails to take these steps, then he or she can be considered negligent and could thus be liable for financial damages victims occur in accidents at these parking locations.
If you sustained catastrophic injuries or your loved one was killed in a parking garage or lot in the greater Philadelphia area, you will probably be contacted by a representative from the property owner’s insurance company shortly after you report the incident. In many cases, the insurance company will express some sympathy and may offer what seems like a decent settlement. However, these amounts rarely cover the cost of future medical expenses or lost wages, and agreeing to settle too quickly will leave you with no legal recourse after the original money is gone.
