Florida Personal Injury Attorney: Parking Lots Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

Port Charlotte car accident attorneyAs Florida personal injury attorneys, we know that parking lots can be a dangerous place. In addition to the risk of a car crash or pedestrian accident, parking lots are often the location of serious slip and fall accidents.

Unfortunately, repeat traffic by both pedestrians and vehicles can cause a parking surface to deteriorate, making it more likely to cause a Florida slip and fall accident. Leaks and spills of engine oil or antifreeze can also make surfaces slippery. Moreover, some painted surfaces can become slick when wet if not properly treated.

Tripping injuries are also common in parking lots, often caused by the differences in height from one section of the lot to another. Speed bumps and tire stops can both cause Florida slip and fall accidents, particularly if not properly marked or illuminated.

Given these risks, if you have been injured in a parking lot slip and fall accident, you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries. The primary question in these cases is this: Was the owner of the property aware of the dangerous condition that caused your accident or should the owner of the property have been aware of the dangerous condition?
