The Hidden Dangers Of Parking Lots
Walking to and from parking spots is something we do nearly every day, without giving it much thought. But parking lots are frequently the site of assaults, falls and other injuries.
The property owner may be responsible for those injuries if they were negligent in maintenance, inspection or security of their parking lot. The Mitchener Law Firm provides experienced legal advocacy for holding them accountable in premises liability claims.
Were You Injured Or Attacked In A Parking Lot?
Lead attorney Victor Mitchener has represented personal injury victims in the Charlotte area for more than 40 years. He has recovered compensation in many premises liability lawsuits involving parking lots:
- Slip-and-falls and trip-and-falls caused by crumbling asphalt, potholes or uneven pavement
- Robberies and assaults enabled by lax security or poor lighting
- Pedestrian accidents arising from dim lighting, traffic bottlenecks and other dangers
A premises liability claim requires that you suffered some lasting injury, such as bone fractures, ankle injuries, head injury or emotional trauma from a rape or mugging.
The claim also requires evidence that the property owner failed to keep their parking lot, walkway or grounds safe for visitors. We investigate to show that the owner knew of a dangerous situation and failed to take corrective action, or should have known through regular upkeep. For example, did the owner fail to address deteriorating parking lot pavement after complaints? Did they fail to install security measures in a neighborhood where similar assaults have occurred?
