Parking Lot Accidents

Darlington County, South Carolina Parking Lot Accident Lawyer

Most of us use parking lots virtually every single day, whether we’re stopping in a store, going to work, or picking up the kids from daycare. Because of the mundane nature of entering and exiting a parking lot, we seldom think of the possibility of a slip and fall accident occurring. Unfortunately, property owners don’t always actively work to ensure their properties are safe, and when they fail to do so and people are hurt, they deserve to be held accountable. That’s where we come in. Contact a knowledgeable South Carolina parking lot accident lawyer from the James Law Office to learn more about how we can help you fight for your rightful compensation after a parking lot slip and fall.

Do I Need To Hire a Parking Lot Accident Lawyer?

Sustaining a serious injury can be a traumatic experience. Often, after such an injury, a person will question whether they’re entitled to compensation and whether they should hire an attorney to help them get it. The answer to the first part depends on the circumstances of a given injury, but the answer to the second part is always yes, it’s best to hire an attorney when bringing a personal injury claim. Our Darlington County, South Carolina slip and fall lawyer can negotiate with insurance companies, gather evidence, and fight for the full compensation to which you are entitled.

Common Parking Lot Hazards

Parking lots can pose serious dangers to pedestrians. Just some of the most common parking lot hazards that we’ve seen lead to injuries are as follows:

  • Standing water
  • Weather-related hazards
  • Uneven pavement
  • Cracks or potholes
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Negligent signage
  • Poor lighting

If you were hurt because of any of the aforementioned circumstances, you may have a valid personal injury claim. However, we’ll have to prove that the property owner owed you a duty of care, breached that duty of care by failing to keep their premises safe, and that you were hurt and incurred significant damages as a result.

The Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations for most personal injury claims in South Carolina is three years. That said, if you were hurt in a parking lot owned or maintained by the government, the statute of limitations would be two years from the date the accident occurred. In all, it’s best simply to reach out to a competent personal injury attorney as soon after an accident as you can so they can get working on your case.
