The Hidden Risks of Parking Lot Accidents

Parking lots serve as convergence points for vehicles, pedestrians, and shopping carts, creating an environment ripe for potential accidents. The close proximity of cars, unpredictable movement patterns, and a mix of distracted drivers can lead to fender benders, side swipes, and even more severe collisions. While parking lot accidents are often low-speed, they can still cause many expensive and painful injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Scarring
  • Back and spinal cord injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Strains and sprains
  • Soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash

In addition, parking lot accidents can lead to significant property damage, including serious mechanical damage to your car.

Steps to Take After a Parking Lot Accident

  1. Ensure everyone’s safety: Prioritize safety by moving your vehicle to a safe location, away from traffic. Check for injuries and administer first aid or contact 911 if necessary.
  2. Contact law enforcement: If the damage is significant or there are injuries, call the police to file an accident report. Also call the police if you suspect criminal activity, such as drunk driving, caused the crash. Having an official record can be invaluable for insurance claims and legal proceedings.
  3. Gather information: Collect contact details, insurance information, and vehicle descriptions of all parties involved. Document the accident scene with photos or videos. If there are witnesses, obtain their contact information. Their statements can provide valuable insights into the accident’s cause.
  4. Notify your insurance company: Report the accident to your insurance company, even if you believe you weren’t at fault. They can guide you through the claims process.
  5. Seek medical attention: Even if you feel fine immediately after the accident, it’s essential to seek medical attention. Some injuries might not manifest until later.

Talking to Florida Car Collision Claims Lawyers

Determining liability in parking lot accidents can be intricate, as it often involves assessing the actions of multiple parties. Speed, right-of-way, visibility, parking lot design, and other factors can all play a role in fault. Speaking with an attorney ensures you can find all liable parties if you’ve been injured, so you can pursue fair compensation for your injuries, lost income, property damage, and other losses.

A Florida car accident claims attorney is also important for maximizing your compensation. Experienced lawyers will meticulously assess all aspects of the accident’s impact on your life and will build a strong case for you, so you may be able to pay less of your injury costs out of pocket.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
