Parking lot accidents can occur for a variety of different reasons and with a diverse range of results. Liability tends to beextremely difficult to prove if no witnesses are available to offer testimonies.
If you find yourself involved in a parking lot accident, never flee the scene. The driver that stays stands to hold the best position in court if the fleeing driver can be identified.
How and Why Parking Lot Accidents Occur
Types of scenarios resulting in parking lot accidents include:
While any number of unique collisions can occur, the most common include:
Parking Lot Medical Concerns
Fortunately, the low-speed protocol of cars in parking lots means that severe injuries are quite rare relative to other crash scenarios. There are always exceptions, of course, and even low-speed impacts with pedestrians can result in severe injuries.
If you find yourself involved in a parking lot accident, make the health of all parties involved your number one concern. If no one is injured, exchange information and call for police to document the incident and help determine liability.
If the other driver leaves the scene, do your best to obtain any form of identification on the vehicle and/or driver. Call the police to document a report and then call an experienced Tampa automobile accident attorney as soon as possible to make sure you get covered.
