Businesses need to take steps to help ensure customer safety. One area that might be overlooked is parking lot safety. With the sun setting earlier during the winter, companies that are open past dusk need to have adequate lighting in their parking lots. Without this, there is a chance that customers will suffer from injurieseither from accidents or from intentional bad actions.

The darkness in some parking lots can lead to customers falling on uneven surfaces. Poorly lit parking lots can also make it difficult for motorists to spot people walking to and from their cars, so there is a risk of someone being struck by vehicles. People might even get attacked or mugged in dark parking lots. Installing adequate lighting is imperative for all businesses.

We know that you didn't go to the store with the intention of getting injured. When this happens in an establishment's parking lot, your primary focus must be to get medical care, even if you only need to be evaluated. This allows you to get a prompt and accurate diagnosis and begin appropriate medical treatment for your injuries.

If you suffered serious injuries from the parking lot incident, you might choose to seek compensation for the damages. This is important, since you shouldn't be expected to pay for the costs associated with these injuries. Missed wages, medical care costs and other related expenses can all be added into your claim.

While it is important to think about your options in these cases, make sure that you act quickly. There are time limits in place for these cases. Once that time passes, you won't be able to pursue compensation.
