People walk through parking lots nearly every day and rarely associate them with danger. When an individual is leaving or returning to their car, they probably aren’t thinking of all of the possible ways they can become injured. However, parking lot accidents happen all too often simply because the owner of the parking lot was negligent. Any property owner has the responsibility of making sure that their property is safe, regardless of whether it is a parking lot, sidewalk, or any other property.
Some parking lot accidents that commonly occur are the result of unattended potholes, debris, ice, snow, inadequate security, and other hazards that can cause an injury. In order to bring a successful personal injury lawsuit for a parking lot accident, the injured party must be able to fulfill the burden of proof. The burden of proof simply shows the court that the owner of the parking lot was negligent and therefore, should be held responsible. The injured party may be able to recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering.
