Protect Your Rights After a Car Accident
Like any traffic accident, victims of parking lot collisions have the right to pursue financial compensation for their injuries, property damage, and ongoing medical care. If you are involved in an accident, document all of your damages with photographs and witness statements.
Some parking lots are legally private property. As such, law enforcement may not be able to issue an official report regarding your accident, making it even more important for you to gather information that may be useful during a claim or lawsuit.
- Always write down the other driver's contact, license, and insurance information.
Parking Lot Accidents & Pedestrian Injuries
Pedestrian accidents can be devastating – even fatal – at any speed. If you suffered an injury or the loss of a loved one in a parking lot pedestrian accident, you may be able to sue the negligent driver for compensation.
Likewise, low-speed accidents involving multiple vehicles can lead to serious head, neck, or spinal cord injuries. These accidents could aggravate an existing medical condition, resulting in missed wages and costly medical bills.
