Parking lot and parking garage accidents are an unfortunate reality. Typically they happen when a driver isn’t paying attention or is going too fast. An experienced lawyer can help you navigate the legal process while you focus on getting better.
What To Do In a Parking Lot Accident
If you are injured, call 911. It is important to seek medical treatment right away for your injuries. If you are able, get the name, insurance information, and license plate of the driver who hit you. Take photos of the scene if possible. This information will be important in determining who is liable for the accident.
The following types of accidents are common in parking lots:
- Backing into another car
- Hitting a pedestrian
- Hitting another car
- Running a stop sign at a crosswalk
- Driving around a corner too quickly in a parking garage
