Common Causes of Parking Lot Accidents

Parking lot accidents and injuries can occur in a variety of scenarios. In some cases, they’re a result of negligent drivers, wherein the accident will either involve two motorists, or one motorist and a pedestrian. In other cases, they’ll happen as a result of dangerous parking lot conditions. A brief overview of each type of accident, as well as some potential causes/types of each, is as follows:

  • Negligent Drivers: A primary cause of accidents is driver negligence. This includes:
    • Speeding or reckless driving in the parking lot.
    • Failure to observe right-of-way rules.
    • Distracted driving, such as using a phone.
    • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Parking Lot Hazards: Often, accidents are not solely due to driver error but are influenced by the conditions of the parking lot itself. Key hazards include:
    • Poorly designed parking lot layouts can lead to confusing or dangerous traffic flow.
    • Inadequate lighting can make it difficult for drivers and pedestrians to see each other.
    • Lack of proper signage or faded road markings.
    • Poor maintenance, such as potholes or unaddressed spills can create slip and fall risks.

How to Establish Liability in a Parking Lot Premises Liability Claim

To establish liability for a parking lot premises liability claim, you will have to prove the following:

  • Duty of Care: Establish that the property owner or driver owed a duty of care to the victim.
  • Breach of Duty: Demonstrate how this duty was breached, through actions like negligent driving or poor maintenance.
  • Causation: Link the breach directly to the accident and resulting injuries.

After you’ve received medical treatment and are in stable condition, you should retain the services of a team of competent Manatee County parking lot accident lawyers. Our legal team can work to satisfy the aforementioned criteria and obtain the compensation you deserve and need to get back on your feet again.

Financial Compensation

The compensation you receive in your injury claim should help you deal with the economic and non-economic damages caused by your accident. Examples of economic damages can include the following:

  • Medical expenses, such as surgeries, hospital overnights, and continued treatment
  • Lost past and future wages
  • Property damage, if applicable

Non-economic damages, on the other hand, deal with intangible, though very real damages, which can include:
