How to Sue After Being Injured in a Washington D.C. Parking Lot Accident

Many of us use parking lots on a daily basis, which is why we rarely consider what would happen if we were seriously injured in one. However, if you have recently been injured in a parking lot accident, you most likely now require financial compensation to recuperate from any damages you have incurred. If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, you must read on and reach out to our experienced Washington D.C. parking lot accident attorneys to learn more about how we can help. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding the personal injury claims process going forward:

What are the most frequent causes of parking lot accidents?

Parking lot accidents are not all too uncommon and can be caused by several different reasons. Because parking lots are hubs for people and automobiles, the chances of an accident occurring are greatly increased. Some of the most frequent causes of parking lot accidents can include poor security allowing crimes to occur, insufficient lighting preventing customers from seeing certain slip or trip and fall hazards, slippery pavement due to standing liquids or unremoved weather-related hazards, large potholes or uneven surfaces, and more.

How do I know if I qualify for compensation after a parking lot accident?

To qualify for financial compensation, you will have to hire an attorney who can prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. Unfortunately, this is oftentimes harder than you may think, as insurance companies may do anything in their power to deny you the compensation of which you are truly entitled. To prove your personal injury claim, our firm will work to recover several different types of evidence, including pictures or videos of the accident, police reports, medical documents, witness statements, and more.

How long will I have to take legal action against a negligent parking lot owner?

In Washington D.C., the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years. Rather simply, this means that you are given three years from the date of your accident to file a claim against a negligent property owner. If you fail to act within the legally-acceptable window of time, you will most likely be barred from suing. Do not make the mistake of waiting to file. The sooner you bring your claim to our firm’s attention, the sooner we can get started fighting for your rights.
