Pittsburgh Parking Lot Slip & Fall Accidents Lawyers

Seasoned Slip & Fall Accident Lawyers Represent Clients Injured in Parking Lot Accidents in Pittsburgh and Throughout Allegheny County

Most people realize that a business owner has the duty to keep his or her store, restaurant, or other establishments safe for customers. What is often overlooked is that if the business owner also maintains a parking lot or garage for customer use, that legal duty also extends to keeping the parking lot safe. This rule applies equally to business owners who simply own and operate parking lots for general use—for example, in a downtown area. People slip and fall because of dangerous conditions in parking lots in the Pittsburgh area every single day, and many of these cases can result in serious injuries that may cause the victim to suffer adverse consequences over a lifetime—even if only in the form of aches and pains, or reduced ability to engage in physical activity.

We represent clients every day who have suffered injuries because a property owner failed to take the time to ensure parking lots were safe for customers to walk through—and we fight to make sure that the property owner’s short-term savings on inadequate maintenance does not end up costing our clients in the long run. If you believe you deserve financial compensation after you sustained injuries in a parking lot slip and fall accident, call our offices today to schedule a free initial case evaluation.

Parking Lot Slip and Fall Accidents Are Common and Entirely Preventable

Most of us walk through parking lots every day without incident. However, this is only possible when the property owner does not allow the property to fall into disrepair. Slip and fall accidents in parking lots are commonly caused by the property owner’s failure to take reasonable steps to repair, remove or warn of any of the following:

Slip and fall accidents are entirely preventable, and the property owner has several duties to customers and guests. Although these duties vary based upon whether the property owner is conducting a business or not, nearly all parking lot owners maintain the parking lot for some business purpose. This means that the property owner owes the highest duty of care to those who use the parking lot, which includes:

Frequently Asked Questions About Slip & Fall Accidents

FAQ: What if I was injured after I fell in a store’s parking lot, but I didn’t buy anything while I was in the store. Can I still recover compensation?

Yes, Pennsylvania law does not impose a requirement that you actually purchased an item to recover in a slip and fall accident case. You remained a customer—or, more technically, a “business invitee”—despite the fact that you did not make a purchase, because the business owner invited you onto the property (i.e., opened the business’ doors to the public) in an effort to make a profit.

FAQ: Why do I need a lawyer to recover compensation in my slip and fall accident case?

Because many recent court decisions have emphasized the victim’s responsibility to exercise caution in preventing slip and fall accidents, insurance companies and property owners may now believe that they are not fully responsible for property maintenance, and may become firmly entrenched in their belief that they owe only a small settlement award. While you do have a duty to exercise reasonable caution in all circumstances, this never eliminates the property owner’s responsibility to make sure the property is reasonably safe. We fully investigate every case to establish your right to compensation, which can include obtaining the property owner’s safety inspection record, maintenance schedule or contracts with maintenance companies, and more. Although you can negotiate on your own behalf, our lawyers have the resources and experience necessary to fight for a settlement award that fully compensates for the injuries in your case.
