Car Wrecks and Injuries in Parking Lots
Posted on behalf of Goldberg Finnegan, LLC on Jul 10, 2015 in Car Accidents
Did you know parking lots are a prime place for car wrecks, often times causing severe injuries? One out of every five car accidents occurs in parking garages and parking lots, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
If you have been injured in an auto accident, do not hesitate to contact our experienced car accident injury lawyers to determine if legal action is right for you. We offer all potential clients a free case evaluation to determine the best course of action after an auto accident injury suffered in Maryland, Virginia or Washington, D.C.
Research shows that children and seniors are at higher risk of being involved in a parking lot accident than those in any other age group. It is very common for parking lot accidents to occur when a driver fails to notice a pedestrian in their rearview while backing out of a parking space.
Even though these car accidents normally happen at low speeds, pedestrians can suffer severe personal injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Trauma to the back and spinal cord
- Internal injuries
There are a number of factors that could potentially lead to a needless collision in a parking garage or surface lot, including:
- Negligent and speeding drivers
- Failure to obey traffic signs
- Lack of visibility around parked cars
