When People Get Hurt Because Of Inadequate Lighting

Defective lighting in stores, restaurants, apartment buildings and other public spaces creates dangerous conditions that can lead to serious injuries. You may be able to hold the property owner responsible if you have suffered an injury because of a lighting issue. Call Mark L. Karno & Associates, LLC for a free case evaluation.

Serious Problems Related To Lighting

As personal injury attorneys, we have seen a variety of unsafe lighting conditions lead to injury. You may be injured because of poor lighting in:

  • A stairway
  • A parking lot
  • A hallway

Unfortunately, slip-and-fall injuries are not the only risk from inadequate lighting. Violent crimes are often committed in public areas with insufficient lighting. When you are injured because of a crime, you may need significant medical rehabilitation and therapy. Most families cannot afford these steep medical costs on their own, especially when your injuries keep you away from work for an extended period of time.
