Types of Parking Lot Accidents

Parking lot accidents can happen for a variety of reasons, but most often, they are a result of negligence. Here are some of the most common types of parking lot accidents that we see:

  • Vehicles colliding with other vehicles: Collisions between vehicles in parking lots typically occur when drivers fail to yield or misjudge distances. They typically result in property damage and more minor injuries.
  • Vehicles colliding with pedestrians: Pedestrian accidents in parking lots occur when drivers fail to notice or yield to pedestrians. Unfortunately, these accidents often result in more severe injuries, or, in some cases, fatalities.
  • Pedestrians encountering safety hazards: Often, parking lot owners will fail to adequately maintain their premises. Hazards such as slippery surfaces, potholes, and more, can cause a person to slip or trip and fall and sustain an injury as a result.

Dangerous Parking Lot Conditions

Parking lots may present various hazardous conditions if inadequately maintained. Some of the most common parking lot hazards are as follows:

  • Poorly marked parking spaces
  • Lack of adequate lighting
  • Cracked and uneven pavement
  • Obstructed pedestrian pathways
  • Inadequate signage and direction
  • Limited handicap accessibility
  • Potholes and trip hazards
  • Insufficient security measures
  • Oil or debris buildup
  • Insufficient security

Filing a Parking Lot Accident Claim

To win your accident claim, you and your attorney will have to gather and present various types of evidence to satisfy the burden of proof. Some of the most useful types of evidence can include:

  • Accident photos (damage, location, conditions)
  • Eyewitness statements
  • Surveillance camera footage
  • Accident report from authorities
  • Medical records and bills

Recovering Financial Compensation

Once we satisfy the burden of proof, we can fight for your full and fair compensation to help cover the cost of the physical, financial, and emotional damages you have incurred as a result of your accident. Some examples of recoverable damages are as follows:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Lost past and future wages

Statute of Limitations

In most cases, the statute of limitations for parking lot accident claims in California is two years. However, if you were injured in a parking lot owned by a municipality or the government, such as a USPS parking lot, you will likely only have six months from the date of your injury to file a Notice of Claim. If you miss either of these deadlines, you will most likely lose your right to sue.
