It’s no secret that parking lots in New York present significant danger to pedestrians. But these hazards are not limited to the winter months, when parking lots become ice-covered. Even during the summer months, pre-existing safety risks, like broken pavements and potholes, can contribute to an accident. In this article, the attorneys at Banville Law focuses on what you should do after falling in a New York parking lot.
Practical Steps: What To Do If You Are A Parking Lot Accident Victim?

Who Can Be Held Liable For My Accident?
Parking lot owners have a legal responsibility to those who utilize their parking lots. By operating a parking lot, owners agree to maintain their lots in a reasonably safe condition, and protect pedestrians and drivers alike from a harmful environment.
Unfortunately, many parking lot owners in New York don’t hold up their end of the bargain, allowing dangerous safety hazards to persist after becoming aware of them. When a pedestrian is injured in a parking lot fall down accident, parking lot owners may be held responsible under a legal doctrine known as “premises liability.”
Do I Need An Attorney?
Unfortunately, many parking lots in New York, especially those serving shopping malls and retail centers, are owned and operated by businesses that have a wide range of resources at their disposal. For this reason, fighting a parking lot owner over your accident can be difficult, even impossible, to do on your own.
