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 & Sanders Attorneys at Law to discuss your claim.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
