Inadequate Lighting Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Dark parking lots, garages, alleys and stairwells are inviting areas for criminal activity. The cloak of darkness can hide their identity and presence, making it easier for them to perpetuate violent crimes. Commercial building owners are obligated to provide reasonable safety for those that are welcomed on the property. Inadequate lighting can create an injury hazard and contribute to violent crimes, which may result in building owners having liability for injuries.

Premises liability laws protect citizens from unreasonable injuries when on someone else’s property. This includes businesses and commercial properties. Security measures like adequate lighting are expected to dissuade criminals from attempting crimes on the property and to help minimize injury accidents. This can help protect innocent citizens from violent attacks by illuminating dark areas and increasing the chance the criminal will be seen or caught. When commercial property owners neglect to maintain well-lit areas, they may be creating an unsafe environment that could lead to violent crimes on their property.

Injury Accidents Caused by Poor Lighting

In addition to contributing to poor security, inadequate lighting can lead to injury accidents. Dark parking lots, stairways and hallways can hide tripping or other hazards. Property owners have a responsibility to provide reasonable safety for those they invite to their business or home. When an injury occurs from lack of visibility in the dark, the property owner may be liable for the injuries.

When a violent crime is committed in a dark parking lot or a tenant trips on an obstacle in a dark apartment hallway, the owner of the property may be liable for injuries. If the injury could have been avoided with adequate lighting, the property owner may be required to pay medical bills, lost income and other damages. If you were injured on a commercial or residential property due to poor lighting, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law to discuss your claim.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
