CAR BACKED INTO SOMEONE DESPITE BACKUP CAMERA
Insurance industry reports say that, statistically, more car accidents happen in a parking lot than anywhere else. Very few of the car accident cases our lawyers handle in Minnesota happened in a parking lot. However, we do get some from time to time. Most of the cases our lawyers handle involve serious injuries.
Fortunately, a car accident in a parking lot is usually at low speed. If one vehicle just bumps another vehicle, people are usually not hurt. However, there have been a number of sad cases where a car backs up and hits a person walking behind it. Those accidents can produce a very serious injury. Our attorneys have handled cases where someone is hit in a parking lot or even someone’s driveway. Most of those cases happen when a car is backing out.
It is amazing that this can still happen even now that many cars have a backup camera. Sometimes the problem is that the pedestrian walks, or runs, suddenly behind the backing up car so that hitting the person is unavoidable. But in most cases, the driver was not even looking at the backup camera because they were distracted by their phone or the radio, or a child in the car. They did not know there was someone behind the car when backing up. In one case, our client was standing between two cars on the street and one vehicle backed up and crushed our client against the car behind.
