Most people don’t realize it, but parking lots are among the most dangerous places in America. An extraordinary number of accidents, injuries and crimes occur each year in parking lots and parking garages.
The Slusser Law Firm wants you to know that for this reason, the law imposes a duty on parking lot owners to protect their customers, with proper lighting, maintenance, signs and security. A parking lot owner can be held liable in court to someone who was injured or harmed if the lot wasn’t made properly safe.
If you have been injured in a parking lot or garage accident, consult a lawyer from the Slusser Law Firm to determine if someone other than yourself is responsible for your injuries.
Here’s a look at some of the dangers of parking lots, and some of the reasons that parking lot owners may be held responsible for them.

The Slusser Law firm recently assisted a small business owner with his acquisition of low interest loans and the purchase of new headquarters in Hazle Township.
The firm represented David Popiak, owner of Hydrodynamics which was founded in 1994, in his acquisition of a 5,500 square-foot facility in the Milnesville section of Hazle Township.
Through the assistance of the CAN DO finance department, Popiak secured a $56,250 low-interest loan from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and an additional $56,250 in low-interest funding through the Economic Development Administration.
Hydrodynamics is a plumbing and heating contractor.
As part of its commitment to Greater Hazleton, the Slusser Law Firm recently made a donation to a local 5K/10K race.
The firm served as a sponsor for the inaugural Hazleton Town and Trail 5K/10K Race, contributing a $500 Social Responsibility Sponsorship. The 5K/10K race was held on Saturday, October 18, with runners and walkers beginning and ending at the trailhead of the Greater Hazleton Rails to Trails. Participants in the 5K Run/Walk headed out and back on the rail-trail to the Dreck Creek Reservoir. Participants in the 10K run followed Broad Street to the downtown core and then looped twice along Laurel and Wyoming Streets before heading back to the finish line.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Greater Hazleton Area Civic Partnership, Greater Hazleton YMCA/YWCA and Hazleton POWER.
Participating in the check presentation are, from left: Bob Skulsky, executive director, Greater Hazleton Area Civic Partnership; Attorney Chris Slusser, The Slusser Law Firm; Mark Rakhmilevich, AmeriCorps OSM/VISTA, Greater Hazleton Area Civic Partnership; and Robert Kotansky, interim CEO, Greater Hazleton YMCA/YWCA.
Motorcyclists from twenty-five motorcycle clubs throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania participated in a 55-mile charity ride to benefit local children from low income families this past weekend. This is the third year for the event that is organized by the Federation of Clubs and sponsored in part by the Slusser Law Firm.
Each rider brought a toy or toys that will be wrapped and delivered along with clothing from volunteers to nearly 180 3 ½- to 5-year-old children at the Wilkes-Barre YMCA’s nursery school and daycare programs at a party on December 6.
“This is the third year for this event which we do as an organization,” Attorney Chris Slusser said. “This program helps a lot of families, and I’m very happy to be a part of it.”
Attorney Slusser not only sponsored the event and organized the toy run, but rode in it as well.
