What If I Was Hurt at a Gas Station?


A regular stop for many, gas stations are fixtures of modern life. These locations function as waypoints for travelers and convenience stores for locals. Fueling stations are busy spots, and amidst the hustle and bustle of refueling, going to the bathroom, and grabbing snacks, accidents can happen. Harm sustained can range from minor to severe.

From vehicular collisions in the parking lot to slippery surfaces causing slip and fall incidents, the potential for Clearwater, Hudson, and Tampa gas station injuries are ever-present. If you find yourself injured at a gas station, talk to an injury attorney to learn about your options for seeking compensation.

Car Crashes, Falls, and Negligence

Vehicular accidents are unfortunately a common occurrence at gas stations. This is because with so many cars and trucks maneuvering in and out of tight spaces, the risk of collisions is heightened. Whether it’s a fender bender while backing out of a parking spot or a more serious accident involving multiple vehicles, injuries can range from whiplash and broken bones to traumatic brain injuries.

Another prevalent hazard at gas stations is slip and fall accidents. Spilled gasoline, leaking fluids from vehicles, and wet weather conditions can create slippery surfaces, increasing the likelihood of slips and falls. These accidents can result in injuries such as sprains, fractures, and head trauma, potentially leading to long-term medical complications.

After any injury, determining liability and discovering which parties may be held accountable is part of the recovery process. For example, station property owners have a legal obligation to maintain a safe environment for patrons and visitors. If negligence on the part of the gas station owner or operator contributed to the accident, such as them failing to promptly clean up spills or repair damaged pavement, they may be liable for the resulting damages.

Assessing Actions of a Third Party

If you believe a third party’s actions led to your accident injury, know that, they may be held accountable as well. For example, if a delivery truck driver negligently backed into another vehicle in the gas station parking lot, causing injuries, the driver and their employer could be liable for damages.

Whether monetary relief is in reach through a negligent security claim or from your own insurance, a Florida personal injury lawyer can help determine the most appropriate party for compensation. While property owners may be the primary target in some cases, there are instances where holding another party accountable makes more sense based on the specifics of the accident. Protect your rights, talk to a lawyer about compensation following a vehicular accident or slip and fall incident on gas station property.
