Philadelphia Parking Lot Slip and Fall Accidents Lawyer
At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., 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 which 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 serious accidents occur because of poorly designed parking lots.
When you walk to your car after a trip to the mall with your family or head home from the grocery store after running your daily errands, the last thing you want to worry about is a slip and fall accident.

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 of which the owner of the property should be aware, and from which they should protect you.
Here Are the Kinds of Cases where Property Owners Need to Protect You from Harm:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Assaults on the property
- Car accidents where the lot is incorrectly designed
- 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 held to the very highest duty of care to keep their property safe for the general public. Potholes on the property are a common defect. Failure to remove snow and ice, or properly treat it, are common causes 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 all potential hazards when the public is on their property, and this duty is non-delegable (meaning it cannot be given or assumed by anyone else but the owner).
