Buffalo Parking Lot Accident Lawyer | Helping Slip & Fall Victims in Western NY
Parking lot accidents can occur between various parties, including two motor vehicles, a motor vehicle and a pedestrian, or even in the form of a slip and fall accident because of unsafe parking lot conditions. Some of the most common causes of slip, or trip and fall accidents in parking lots are as follows:
- Ice or snow left uncleared
- Inadequate lighting
- Insufficient security
- Slippery liquids left uncleared
- Loose debris
- Uneven pavement or potholes in the pavement
If you were hurt because of any of these unsafe parking lot conditions, you should strongly consider speaking with an experienced Buffalo slip & fall lawyer as soon as you can.
To win a personal injury claim, you will have to satisfy the burden of proof, which simply means you will have to prove you were injured because of someone else’s negligence. In the case of parking lot slip and fall accidents, you will most likely sue the parking lot owner. Proving negligence isn’t always easy when it comes to premises liability claims. To win a premises liability claim, you must prove that the property owner either know or should have known about the dangerous property conditions, failed to take action to fix them, and that you were injured and sustained damages as a result. To prove your premises liability claim, you and your Buffalo parking lot accident lawyer should try to obtain the following:
- Witness testimony
- Pictures of the unsafe parking lot condition
- A copy of the police report filed at the scene
- Medical documents regarding your injuries
- Surveillance footage of your accident as it happened
When a personal injury claim is successful, the injured party should recover financial compensation to help offset the burden of any financial, physical, or emotional damages they’ve sustained. This can include lost wages, pain and suffering, medical expenses, the loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement, and the loss of consortium, which refers to the negative impact an accident had on a person being able to maintain familial relationships.
