Parking lot injuries can occur in parking lots of all types, from new lots with defective asphalt to old ones that have developed deep potholes and have not been maintained properly for decades. When negligent property owners refuse to fix dangerous parking lot conditions or fail to adequately warn the public of the existence of these dangers, those who have been harmed by this negligence can pursue premises liability claims against the property owner.The parking lot injury attorneys at Ruhmann Law Firm stand up for the interests of clients injured in parking lots in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. We use our extensive experience, vast understanding of personal injury law and unyielding loyalty to our clients to build powerful cases on behalf of those injured in parking lots due to property owner negligence. We are well-known by our peers and insurance carriers as dedicated client advocates who will advance a case as far as necessary to ensure that our clients are treated fairly.
What To Do If You Are Injured In A Parking Lot
Whether you are injured because of a pothole or any other unmarked hazard in a parking lot, there are several things that you should do as soon as possible following the accident. These include:
- Seek medical care for severe injuries.
- Contact Ruhmann Law Firm as soon as possible so that we can begin to build a strong case on your behalf.
- Remain aware of your surroundings and take pictures of the scene of the accident.
- Remember what other people at the scene said or told you — if possible, collect their names and contact information.
Notification is also an important part of the process, so it is vital to notify property owners that you have been injured on their property. However, they may attempt to fix or cover up the defect — such as a pothole — once they learn of your injury, so it is important to have us working for you as soon as possible to prevent this from happening.
