What are the common ways that parking lot accidents occur?

Parking lot accidents can occur as a result of a number of different factors. However, it is important to keep in mind that in most cases, they are the result of one negligent driver hitting a pedestrian while backing out of a parking space. Or in other common instances, they occur when two vehicles collide. Recognize that several parking lot accidents can also happen as a result of unsafe parking lot conditions. Because of this, the state of Texas holds parking lot owners responsible for ensuring their parking lots are safe for all who use them, and when they fail to do so, they may be held civilly liable. Some of the most common unsafe parking lot conditions that lead to a serious trip or slip and fall accidents can include the following:

  • Slippery surfaces
  • Poor lighting
  • Debris
  • Insufficient security
  • Standing water
  • Uneven pavement

If you were injured because of unsafe parking lot conditions, with the assistance of a skilled and dedicated Houston personal injury attorney, you may hold the liable party accountable and recover the compensation you need to heal and move forward.
