Parking Lot Slip and Fall Accidents in Philadelphia
At Greg Prosmushkin, PC, we often see cases involving Parking Lot Accidents that could have been prevented had the parking lot itself been designed better. Whether it is a convenience store that has too many parking spots which are too close to the enter and exit drive or the flow of traffic within a large parking lot is too confusing for anyone to understand which way they were intended to go, the fact remains that accidents, serious ones, occur because of poorly designed parking lots.
At Greg Prosmushkin, PC, our attorneys know how to handle these types of cases. From onsite inspections to choosing the correct parking lot design architect expert, our office has the knowledge and requisite resources to handle your case properly and successfully. Our office is available for free consultation; simply call us.
What if I am in an accident and it does not involve the design of the parking lot?
There are all types of incidents that occur on parking lots that the owner of the property should be aware of and protect you from.
Here are the kinds of cases that property owners need to protect you from harm:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Car accidents where the lot is incorrectly designed
- Assaults on the property
Getting struck by a car while walking in a parking lot
Here are the types of injuries that we routinely see with parking lot negligence:
- Brain injuries
- Strains and sprains
- Herniated Discs
Parking lot owners are under the very highest duty of care to keep their property safe for the general public. Pot holes on the property are a common defect. Failure to remove snow and ice, or properly treat it, is a common cause of Slip and Falls. Usually owners will try and avoid responsibility by claiming that it is not their fault. They claim that they hired a snow and ice Removal Company and that the company failed to properly treat the surface of the lot. Nothing could be further from the truth. In reality, an owner cannot give away his responsibility to another company simply because they were hired to remove a certain condition. An owner is responsible for keeping the public safe from hazards when the public is on their property and that duty is non delegable (cannot be given or assumed by anyone else but the owner).
