Parking Lot Car Accidents

It is surprising to most people to learn that the most common car accident is being hit while your car is parked. It is a fact that countless accidents, many causing injuries to drivers and pedestrians, happen in parking lots and garages. Parking lots and garages are often narrow, crowded, have numerous blind turn, unclear traffic directions, poorly marked lanes, and minimal/confusing signage.

The Boston car accident lawyers at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. know that parking lot and parking garage car accidents are often complex and fault can be difficult to prove. Nonetheless, if you have been struck and injured by another car, either as a pedestrian or another driver, you need experienced legal counsel to obtain rightful compensation. We deal daily with insurance companies and launch the most thorough investigation of your accident possible to get you what you deserve.

Negligent And Careless Driving Is Often The Root Cause

Parking lots at malls, grocery stores, restaurants, plazas, and other public places are often forum for reckless, negligent, and downright careless driving, where drivers often speed, are distracted, and disregard lanes, traffic signs, and rules of the parking lot or parking garage. Many times, motorists are too preoccupied with getting a parking space and disregard the safety of other drivers and pedestrians in the lot or garage. Other times, because drivers are in a parking lot or garage, they wrongfully disregard signs, crosswalks, lanes, directional arrows, and other traffic controls. It is not uncommon to see other drivers dangerously cutting through the lot diagonally or with their eyes distracted from the road ahead.

Pedestrians Are At Risk

Pedestrians, along with other vehicles, are at risk for being struck and injured by a negligent driver in a parking lot or parking garage. Most lots lack pedestrian walks, forcing walkers to weave in and out of parked and moving cars, where they are often difficult to see and placed at high risk.

Even Low-Speed Collisions Can Cause Serious Injury And/Or Death

Don't be mislead. Even though most parking lot/parking garage accidents are low impact and low speed, serious injuries and even fatalities can result, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, nerve damage, and disfigurement. Many of these injuries involve long and expensive treatment and potentially many months of lost employment.

Liability May Fall On A Third Party

In addition to proving liability of another negligent driver, our attorneys will explore your case to determine if liability for a parking lot accident can also be imputed to a third party, such as a business, for failure to make their lot safe for vehicles and pedestrians. Property owners of garages and lot may be liable for injuries if they do not ultimately maintain the premises in a safe condition, which leads to injury and/or wrongful death.
