Simply walking from the store to your car may not seem very perilous, but it can be if the parking lot is not properly maintained. Read on to learn more about parking lot accidents in Maryland.
How do parking lot accidents occur?
There are countless ways for a parking lot accident to happen. For example:
- Standing water
- Inadequate security
- Insufficient parking lot lights
- Failure to remove weather-related hazards
If your accident was a result of another party’s negligence, you will likely be entitled to recover compensation. But, in order to recover the compensation you deserve, you will have to fulfill the burden of proof. For example, it is important to take pictures and videos of the hazardous conditions that caused your accident to occur. Additionally, you should seek medical attention immediately after an accident. This will ensure that your injuries are properly treated while simultaneously providing you with proof of the origin and extent of your injuries. A skilled attorney can help you obtain further proof, such as police reports, security camera footage, and more.
What is the statute of limitations?
If you are recovering from a serious accident, taking legal action may be the last thing on your mind. But, it is important that you act quickly. This is because of a deadline known as a statute of limitations. In Maryland, the statute of limitations for a personal injury accident is generally three years from the date of the accident. Failing to file within three years will likely mean losing your opportunity to recover the compensation you need and deserve in order to heal. Do not let this happen- reach out to a skilled personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
