Where can insufficient lighting accidents occur?

- Parking lots
- Department stores or clothing stores
What are some examples of insufficient lighting accidents?

- It can allow certain crimes resulting in injury to occur
- An insufficiently lit road can cause a motorist to strike a pedestrian or cyclist
How can I recover financial compensation if I’m hurt?
There are few things worse than sustaining an injury due to no fault of your own. If you are hurt because of an inadequately lit building, parking lot, road, or stairwell, if you can, you should try and document every facet of the accident. This can include getting witness contact information, taking pictures of the unsafe conditions, seeking immediate medical treatment, and more. Once you receive medical treatment, you should also keep a copy of the medical records associated with your injuries.
