PARKING LOT CAR CRASHES ARE AMONG MOST FREQUENT
According to insurance industry statistics, car crashes accidents occur very frequently in parking lots. We have read that up to 20% of all car crashes in the country occur in a parking lot. Fortunately, most parking lot collisions only involve damage to the vehicles, because the speed of the cars is usually slow.
However, our car accident lawyers have represented many people injured in a parking lot accident. In several cases, someone was walking behind a car that backed into them or a car ran a stop sign and hit them in the parking lot. But we have also had cases where our client was in their car and injured by a low impact crash after the other car T-boned them or rear-ended them.
When a car runs into a pedestrian in a parking lot, the result can be a broken leg, broken hip, head injury, or other types of physical injury. Of course the insurance company always claims our client is at fault, or at least partially at fault, for not seeing the car and avoiding the impact – even if the car just suddenly backed out as our client was walking by. That’s why our lawyers always recommend getting the names and contact information of any witnesses if possible.
