Determining Liability for Injuries after a Parking Lot Collision

September 25, 2022
By Lafferty Gallagher Scott

Most people do not think that they could be hurt when cars collide in a parking facility. While it’s true that most of these collisions do not result in severe injuries, it is possible to suffer contusions, broken bones, lacerations, and bruises as a result. If you have been injured in a car accident in a parking garage or paid lot, you could be entitled to receive monetary compensation through an auto accident claim

Accident Liability

When an accident happens, it is usually caused by one driver’s negligence or reckless behavior. One driver typically has the right-of-way while the other does not. 

The first step in an injury case is to establish liability. Once liability is determined, the next step is to determine negligence. Negligence is the failure to act in a careful manner, particularly when knowing that their actions could cause harm.

Serious Accidents

Nobody expects to get into an accident and when one happens, it can be a traumatic experience. This can be especially true if you are badly hurt. Head injuries are one of the most common injuries that happen as the result of a vehicle accident. Head trauma can be severe and it requires immediate medical attention. If you have been in an accident that caused you to hit your head, do not delay in going to the hospital for emergency medical care. Some signs of trauma do not show up immediately, yet the impact could have caused brain trauma that will manifest later.
