Common Causes of Parking Lot Accidents
Parking lot accidents can happen for many different reasons, though they are oftentimes the result of parking lot owner negligence. Some of the various unsafe parking lot conditions that can cause serious accidents are as follows:
- Standing water
- Uneven pavement
- Insufficient lighting
- Negligent security
- Negligent signage
- Careless drivers
Fulfilling the Burden of Proof
After being injured in a parking lot accident, as long as you are physically capable of documenting the incident, you should do so. This means photographing the unsafe conditions that caused your accident, asking witnesses for their contact information, calling the police to the scene of the incident, seeking medical treatment, and retaining the services of a knowledgeable Ontario personal injury lawyer.
Keep in mind that to file a personal injury claim, you must act promptly. Ontario’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims is, generally, two years, which means that you must not wait any longer than two years from the date of your parking lot accident injury to take legal action against the property owner responsible. Our firm is ready to assist you today.
As long as you can prove that you were injured as a result of another party’s negligence, you should recover financial compensation to help pay for any medical bills you’ve incurred as a result of your injury, lost wages from being unable to return to work, emotional distress you’ve endured as a result of your accident, and more.
