Fort Lauderdale Poor Lighting Accident Attorney
Should you be the victim of an accident caused by poor lighting, contact this Fort Lauderdale Poor Lighting Accident Lawyer today. Poor lighting can cause all sorts of accidents. These include car accidents. If the driver of one vehicle cannot see the driver of another vehicle, then an accident may result.
In this scenario, it may be the entity that installed or maintained the improper lights that is liable for any injuries caused. After all, if the drivers of the vehicles couldn’t see each-other, then it certainly wasn’t their fault! It would then be the entity in charge of the lights that would be responsible.
If you were involved in a car crash caused by improper lighting, then one of the challenges will be to figure out which entity installed or maintained the lights. If that entity was a governmental entity (such as a City, County or the State), then your case will be one of “sovereign immunity.” In a sovereign immunity case, the most that you will be able to recover is typically $200,000. The exception to this is if you are able to pass a “claims bill” (legislation in Tallahassee which allows you to recover more than $200,000).

Falls are also frequently caused by inadequate lighting. For example, a person walking through a business establishment, a home or in a public area may trip over steps or stairs if the area isn’t lit well enough. In this scenario, it will be the property owner who will be responsible for any injuries caused.
If this occurred to you, then the property owner may argue that the lighting was, in fact, adequate. In that scenario, Mr. Quackenbush will likely hire a “human factors” expert. A human factors expert testifies about the ability of human beings (including yourself) to perceive, react, etc. to various stimuli (including light). If the human factors expert is able to testify that the light in the area was not adequate enough for you to perceive whatever it was that caused your fall, then you will have a case.Important Advice Given by this Broward County Inadequate/Deficient Lighting Law Firm
Negligent lighting may come in many different forms. Included in these are lights that are completely “out,” or lights that are just too dim.
Street-lights on highways and roads, for example, eventually go out. It is typically the responsibility of the owner of the roadway (or a company hired by the owner of the roadway) to consistently monitor these street-lights and to replace the lights when they go out. If the responsible party doesn’t do this, then that party may be held liable for any accidents/injuries that result.Contact this South Florida Negligent Lighting Attorney/Lawyer Today at 954-448-7288
