Trip and Fall in a Parking Lot – Injury Lawyers


Trip and fall accidents are among the most common types of personal injury accidents. These accidents can happen practically at any time and at any place – as long as there is a trip hazard present. These accidents are very common in parking lots, as parking lots often do not get the attention necessary from property owners. If you or a loved one suffered a trip and fall accident at a parking lot, you could have grounds to file a lawsuit.

If you are interested in learning more about your legal options, contact us today. Our lawyers here at the Downtown L.A.

Examples of Trip and Fall Hazards

Trip and fall accidents can happen essentially anywhere, as long as there is a trip hazard present. Some common examples of trip hazards include the following:

  • Broken concrete or uneven concrete
  • Potholes
  • Exposed rebar
  • Missing or misplaced warning signs
  • Broken sidewalks
  • Exposed wiring
  • Blocked walkways
  • Littered floors

Any of these hazards can quickly lead to a trip and fall accident that could result in serious injuries.

Trip and Fall Injuries

All trip and fall accidents are different. Some trip and fall accidents can result in only minor injuries while others can lead to permanent or even fatal injuries. Some examples of the injuries that occur because of trip and fall accidents include the following:

  • Arm injuries, wrist injuries, and hand injuries
  • Leg injuries, ankle injuries, and foot injuries
  • Fractures (simple and complex)
  • Sprains and strains
  • Scrapes and bruises
  • Knee injuries
  • Neck injuries and back injuries

These are just some of the injuries can occur due to trip and fall accidents at parking lots. No matter the specific injuries resulting from the accident, you could have grounds to file a lawsuit.

Do I Have the Right to Sue for My Injuries in a Trip and Fall Accident at a Parking Lot?

Yes – you could have the right to sue. Your right to sue is based on the concept of premise liability. More specifically, it is based on the fact that the parking lot property owner failed to keep the parking lot safe, resulting in your accident and your injuries. Based on premise liability, all property owners owe their guests – that is, anyone who is rightfully on the property – a duty of care. In other words, they have a duty to keep the premises safe and free of any hazards that could lead to incidents. Because of this, the owners of parking lots have a duty to keep their lots safe; they must routinely inspect their premises to be able to identify and address any hazards before incidents occur. When property owners fail to keep their premises safe, hazards on the property could cause trip and fall accidents, which can result in harm.

So, can you sue? If you can prove that the injuries that you or a loved one suffered occurred as a direct result of a breached duty of care – or the property owner’s failure to keep the parking lot safe and free of hazards – then you could have the right to file a lawsuit.

What Compensation Can I Recover for My Trip and Fall Claim?

Given the details surrounding your claim, you could have the right to recover monetary compensation for the harm resulting from the accident. What could you recover? Some of the compensation that you could be eligible to recover can include the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages
  • Legal fees

Here at our law firm, our trip and fall attorneys are more than ready to provide you with the guidance that you need to recover the highest settlement available for your claim. It does not matter whether we need to negotiate a settlement or take your claim to trial to reach a fair verdict; you can trust that our experienced trip and fall lawyers are ready to fight for your right to recover the maximum payout possible.

What is the average value of trip and fall claims? The value of trip and fall claims can vary significantly from case to case. These cases can have values ranging from $50,000 to $750,000. In fact, these cases can sometimes be worth even more. The types of injuries suffered, the total amount in medical costs, the permanency of the injuries, etc. are all factors that must be considered to determine the average value of a claim.

How long will I need to wait for my trip and fall lawsuit to settle? Here at our law firm, we are committed to settling these cases within a reasonable time. For us, this is six to eight months. Unfortunately, it is not always possible. Depending on the details surrounding the case, the settlement process can take much longer. In general, all cases can be settled within two years with very few exceptions.

What Deadline Applies to My Trip and Fall Claim?

All injury claims are subject to a statute of limitations, or a deadline to sue. In California, trip and fall accident claims are subject to a two-year statute of limitations. This means that claimants only have two years to file their lawsuits. In some cases, certain exceptions could apply, meaning that the applicable deadline is tolled or paused for some time.

What happens if I do not file my trip and fall claim on time? Unfortunately, failing to file your claim on time means that you will lose your right to sue. To ensure that your claim is filed on time, contact the experts here at our law firm today.
