Slip and Fall Accidents Due to Inadequate Lighting

Brockton Personal Injury & Greater Boston Premises Liability Lawyers

Inadequate Lighting AttorneyIn addition to creating an atmosphere that can attract crime, inadequate lighting, or lighting that is not maintained (i.e., burned out light bulbs and non-working fixtures) can also increase the likelihood of tripping in the dark or slipping and falling.  A property owner that does not promptly address problems with lighting may be liable for injuries sustained on their properties, that they might not be liable for during daylight hours.

For example, a trivial sidewalk defect that can easily be seen in daylight, might not be visible at all in the dark.  A curb within height regulations, painted a dark color can be easily seen when proper lighting is in place; but in darkness, could be a trip and fall hazard.

Establishing Owner Liability for Crimes In Poorly-Lit Areas

Gyms and club owners often post warning signs not to leave valuables, including purses and wallets in cars to avoid theft. But if you are mugged in the parking lot on the way to your car because there was no lighting, they may be liable for the harm you suffered because gym parking lots are known to be common places for theft crimes.

If you suffered a serious injury including lacerations, broken bones, fractures, dislocations, or head or brain injuries in a poorly lighted area, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and in more serious cases, damages.
