When a Slip and Fall Accident Occurs in a Dangerous Parking Garage in Florida
When you start up your car to drive somewhere, more than likely you end up pulling into a parking lot when reaching your destination. Whether you are going to work, the grocery store, department store, hotel, or other place, you will likely pull into a parking space. Not only can parking a car be challenging due to hazards such as pedestrians and cars reversing, but parking lots themselves can be dangerous, leading to slip and fall accidents.
This is especially the case when parking garages are involved due to dim lighting and the larger grounds property owners need to maintain. When property owners fail to fix broken parking bumpers, uneven flooring, or other dangerous conditions, people who enter parking garages may be vulnerable to suffering slip and fall injuries.
Unfortunately, these slip and fall dangers aren’t just unique to a specific parking garage in Florida. Slip and fall hazards can occur at any parking garage in the following locations, such as:
- Hotels and resorts
- Amusement parks
- Shopping malls
- Convention centers
