Parking Lot Accidents
An accident in a parking lot can be just as traumatizing as an accident on the highway, sometimes even more so. When driving in a parking lot, people can get careless, and it is not uncommon to back into another car. Do not think just because the accident might have been at a low rate of speed that you cannot be injured. If you have experienced a parking lot accident that caused an injury, our personal injury attorneys are here to help you navigate through the sea of medical bills and insurance claims.
One of the most difficult parts of an unexpected illness, injury, or accident, is the unplanned medical bills that begin to pile up. If you are injured as the result of a parking lot car accident, no matter whose fault it is, we can help you get your medical bills paid. We have experience getting medical bills paid for clients, as well as predicating the future medical costs of the injury, and getting those paid for as well.
Do not fear bankruptcy and do not worry that your finances will take an unsurmountable hit. Medical bills as the result of an accident should be covered, and you will not be held liable.
Parking Lot Design
Whether or not you are deemed at fault in the accident, one of the first things we will investigate is the design of the parking lot as well. While it might look like any other parking lot, it is possible that the spaces are not arranged correctly. Perhaps the angles are wrong, there is not enough space for cars to get in and out comfortably, or the speed limits in the lot are set to high.
Our team has vast experience investigating personal injury as a result of parking lot accidents. Let our expertise help you navigate through difficult times.
We will look at the history of relevant cases. What is the other driver’s history? Are they careless? And, have there been other incidents of car accidents within this particular parking lot?
Do not worry about obtaining this information yourself, that is what we are here for. In working with our firm, you will gain years of experience investigating accidents just like yours. While, hopefully, this is the only accident you will have of this nature, we have seen similar incidents time and time again. We can use this history to help build your case and help make your life easier in the wake of the accident.
Pain and Suffering
If you are insurance has covered every dollar of your medical bills, do not underestimate the pain you are experiencing. Medical bills alone do cover the cost of the emotional, mental, and physical pain you are feeling after your accident. You are no doubt in physical pain, but you also might be experiencing emotional trauma. Perhaps your accident has caused you to lose your job. You are entitled to be paid for the wages you are missing now, and also the wages you are losing in the future. But, you also should be paid for the embarrassment and pain that come with losing your job as a result of this accident. “Pain and suffering” is a phrase that is not easily defined. However, how years of experience have made us experts in working towards earning our clients the right payments for the pain and suffering they go through when they are personally injured in a parking lot car accident. We can help you make sure you are compensated correctly for what you have gone through.

Let us fight the insurance battles for you while you recover.
What should I do now?
Best case scenario, maybe you have photos or video of the accident and the accident scene. If you do, please provide them to us. Also take note of the weather that day. Was there an icy parking lot that should have been better cared for by the owner of the parking lot? Was there poor visibility that caused another driver not to see your car clearly?
One of the most important things you can do is go to the doctor’s if you are in physical pain. Do not let the fear of a high medical bill scare you away. Go to the doctor, get the tests you need, and get a diagnosis if you have an injury. That will all help in court, and can help justify the case for how much money you are entitled to as a result of the accident. Most importantly, take care of your health, and make sure you get the treatment you need.
You should never contact the business who owns the parking lot or the other driver directly. Let us handle those types of actions.
