Holding Property Owners Accountable for Defects
Parking lots receive both heavy vehicular traffic and heavy foot traffic, and they are usually exposed to the elements, including heat, cold, and precipitation. All of these factors can lead to wear and tear which can result in an injury-causing accident.
Conditions such as the following can prove particularly hazardous:
- Potholes in areas where people are likely to walk
- Slippery and icy walkways and stairs
- Uneven pavement and blacktop
Both private and municipal parking lot owners have a responsibility to maintain their premises and fix defects. When they fail to do so, visitors who trip or are harmed by the defect can suffer serious injuries. Parking lot hazards can cause particularly severe harm to older people and people with underlying disabilities.
