A slip-and-fall accident can happen anywhere. You might think that public parking lots are fairly safe areas, but they also have their hazards. When you combine the stress of finding a good parking place with rainy or icy conditions, it’s easy to see why slip-and-fall accidents are common in parking lots. 

Fortunately, there are laws in most states that help protect you from being held liable for your injuries if you’re the victim of a slip-and-fall accident in a private parking lot. Depending on where you live and the specifics of your case, there may be different people who could be held responsible for your injuries. Kash Legal can help represent you so you get the compensation you’re owed after a slip-and-fall accident in a parking lot.

Who is Responsible For a Slip-and-Fall in a Parking Lot?

If you slip and fall in a parking lot, the first thing to do is determine who owns the parking lot. The owners of parking lots and garages have a legal obligation to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition. For example, if you slip and fall in a garage, the person or company who owns the garage may be held liable if they were aware of the hazard and did not take reasonable steps to fix it.

Similarly, if you slip and fall in a parking lot, the owner of the parking lot should be liable for your injuries. This is because the owner is responsible for the condition of the parking lot and should make sure it is free of hazards. However, the parking lot’s owner is not the only potentially liable party.

If the parking lot is leased to a business, that business may be held liable for any injuries that occur on the property. In addition, if the parking lot is maintained by a third-party company, that company may also be held liable for any injuries that occur due to its negligence.

Can You Be Liable For Your Own Parking Lot Accident?

It is possible to be held liable for your own parking lot accident if you were found to be negligent. Parking lot accidents are usually the result of someone being careless or not paying attention and can often be difficult to determine who was at fault. If both parties are determined to be equally at fault, then each party would be responsible for their own damages.

If one party is found to be more at fault than the other, then that party would be responsible for a greater percentage of the damages. The amount of fault is typically based on the degree of negligence, which means that some parties may be found to be more negligent than others.
