Parking Lot Chaos
Parking lots can be very cramped, congested and chaotic, increasing the risk factor for:
- Car Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Hit and Runs
- Personal Injury
- Property Damage
- Wrongful Death
Dangerous and potentially deadly situations can occur in milliseconds, especially in parking lots. With the close proximity, tight parking spaces and heavy pedestrian foot traffic, it was a miracle there was nobody crossing the street when the driver in the vehicle below careened out of control.
Top 3 Most Common Parking Lot Accidents
Although we are familiar with parking the car in the nearest parking lot to go shopping for groceries, clothes or even at the dealership, there is always danger all around. Serious and fatal injuries are prevalent in parking lots because of the tight-packed spaces and powerful and heavy automobiles all cramped together.
Mix in the rush hour traffic trying to grab some groceries after work on a weekday and you have chaos and danger painted all over it.
The Top 5 Most Common Parking Lot Accidents consist of the following:
- Fender-Benders: This can consist of mild accidents resulting in two cars going for the same parking spot at the same time, to backing into a car while pulling out, side swiping a car by getting to close, or even drivers that are attempting to reverse or pull forward, when the car is still in the opposite direction.
- Pedestrian Accidents: Drivers running down pedestrians in the parking lot is very common. Shoppers leaving the store many times walkout into the crosswalk expecting traffic to stop immediately, but sometimes fail to do so and are struck by a vehicle.
- Hit-and-Runs: Drivers often times do not want to deal with the protocol of exchanging insurance and contact information and will flee the scene of the accidents.
