Miami Parking Garage Liability Attorneys
Protecting & Fighting for the Injured in South Florida & Beyond
Just like other premises, a parking garage can become the scene of an accident or criminal attack leading to injuries or even death. The owners of parking garages are responsible, like all property owners, for maintaining a reasonably safe environment for those who use or visit the premises. That means the owner or manager owes a legal duty of care to customers. The owner is expected to know about existing safety hazards, remedy them, or provide warnings to visitors about the hazards until they can be remedied in a reasonable time period. When parking garage owners fail to do this, they may be found negligent and thus liable should an injury or wrongful death occur on their property.
If you or someone you know has sustained injuries or lost a loved one in a parking garage where you believe negligence occurred, you should consult with an experienced premises liability attorney.

Parking Garage Liability Cases
Pedestrians walking through parking facilities as well as motorists driving them may fall prey to various types of hazards. These can include:
- Inadequate, confusing, broken, defaced, or missing signage directing individuals on where to stop, turn, yield, etc.
- Greasy or slippery surfaces, especially from oil spills or improper drainage
- Wheel stops that have become broken or cracked; these can then become easily tripped over
- Broken or cracked pavement
- Inadequate security resulting in criminal attacks
- Non-existing designated walkways
- Poor structure design causing confusing flow of traffic
- Poor or broken lighting
- Failure to clear snow or ice
Inadequate security is one of the more dangerous types of negligence because it can result in violent crimes committed against parking garage users. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, more than 400,000 violent victimizations occurred in parking lots or garages as an annual average between 2004 and 2008. In a recent case in Los Angeles, a Dodgers fan suffered a fractured skull after an attack in the Dodger parking lot. His lawsuit is based on negligence and premises liability related to inadequate security and poor lighting.
Negligence in parking lots and garages can result in a variety of injuries, from cuts, bruises, sprains, broken bones, and concussions to more serious internal injuries, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Compensation for injuries can include financial resources for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages or earning capacity, emotional trauma, and other damages.
