Parking Lots and Car Accident Dangers
Posted on behalf of Greg Coleman Law on Jul 09, 2015 in Auto Accident
A parking lot can be a deceptively dangerous environment. Car accident victims can suffer serious injuries and long-term consequences.
No matter what type of accident you have been involved in, even if it is a simple parking lot accident, it is imperative that you contact an experienced car accident attorney as soon as possible to explore your legal options.
Parking lot collisions are quite common. Accidents often occur at a low rate of speed and consequences can vary from fender-benders to life-threatening accidents involving pedestrians.
There are several risk factors for car wrecks inside parking lots:
- Congestion: Higher vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
- Backing out: Blind spots are created when vehicles are parked on either side, which creates poor visibility of pedestrians.
- Speed: Tragedy often occurs when drivers dont follow posted limits.
In some cases, such as texting and driving, you may be accused of contributing or even causing your injuries. Depending on the type of accident, there may be one or multiple parties involved in accidents regarding parking lot injuries.
