Parking lots are not only prone to violent episodes but can pose a hazard for Slip and Fall Accidents. Many workplaces are close to Parking Lots. You may not be working there, but you are still at risk of injury, in any parking lot.

Some of the factors that contribute to such accidents include deteriorating surfaces. When walking in a parking lot, watch where you step. Flat and even surfaces, are the ideal places to walk on. Avoid walking on gratings or broken pavement.

Also, watch for spillage of oil where cars are parked. They aggravate the situation. Antifreeze and weather conditions may also increase the risk of a slip and fall. Look out for speed bumps. They may cause you to trip.

Pay attention to any tire stops, as you walk. During winter it is appropriate to wear anti-slip footwear. If you notice any hazardous conditions in the parking lot, report it to the relevant bodies.

Watch out for cars and spillage. When walking through, don’t assume that the driver will see you first. Your safety should be your number one priority. And if you are in a position to prevent an accident from happening, then, do so, for the sake of other people.

Be on the lookout at all times. When you are in a parking lot, watch out for both fall hazards and cars. If by an unfortunate event you happen to have a slip and fall accident, due to the negligence of another, contact our expert personal injury lawyers at Kalsi & Associates, at (844) 905-2993
