Parking Lots Accidents

Parking lots can get notoriously congested and involve numerous vehicles trying to compete for parking spots, get spots closest to a building, and navigate between other vehicles. While the speeds in parking lots are much slower than those on highways and roads, they can still be the site of serious car accidents if drivers behave irresponsibly. Unfortunately, dangerous behavior in parking lots is only too common across the U.S., and many innocent people are injured frequently because of the dangerous behaviors of others in parking lots.

Causes of Parking Lots Accidents

While many people may not consider parking lots to be especially dangerous, they can lead to situations that can cause serious accidents. In fact, parking lot accidents are commonly caused by:

  • Drivers disregarding speed limit signs
  • Aggressive driving / road rage
  • Drivers failing to yield the right-of-way
  • Drunk / distracted driving

All of these conditions increase the chance of a parking lot accident occurring. Even these accidents, which may seem minor, can be extremely dangerous for those involved and might cause severe injuries. In many cases, these injuries result in high financial burdens as well, due to vehicle repairs and medical treatment for any injuries a victim sustains.
