Parking lots and garages are not inherently dangerous places. However, if premises are poorly maintained, they can cause a person to trip, fall or otherwise become injured. Business and building owners should be held accountable if their parking lots present a danger to those who use them.

What Caused the Injury?

Injuries to the knee are very common after a trip and fall. Parking lot hazards that can cause a fall might include:

  • Poor lighting
  • Uneven pavement
  • Parking blocks out of place
  • Rocks, trash or other debris left about

The above are examples of negligent maintenance. If you fell and injured your knee because of unsafe conditions in a parking lot, you may have grounds for a personal injury case.

What Losses Did You Suffer Because of the Injury?

In order to win a liability lawsuit against a property owner or manager, you have to be able to demonstrate losses you suffered because of the injury caused by the unsafe premises. Losses can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Lost future earning potential

If you think someone else’s carelessness caused your parking lot knee injury, talk to a premises liability lawyer to determine if you should pursue legal action.
