For many people, the idea of a parking lot collision means little more than a fender bender. However, these accidents have the potential for much more than minor vehicle damage, even when the accident occurs at low speed. If you are injured in a parking lot collision, a dedicated injury attorney could advise you on how to hold the other driver accountable.

You have the right to seek monetary compensation from the driver that injured you. That does not mean your claim is guaranteed to be successful. Litigating parking lot wrecks can be challenging, and determining which driver has the right-of-way in a parking lot is not always simple. An Augusta parking lot accident lawyer could review your case and guide you on how to prove that the other driver was at fault.

Allocating Fault in an Augusta Parking Lot Collision

Parking lot accidents are common in Augusta for several reasons. One reason is the rows of parked cars can severely limit a driver’s visibility. With so many parked vehicles, it can be challenging to determine which cars are on the move. Adding to these issues is the lack of traffic rules in most lots and garages. While the rules of the road regulate city streets, it is not always clear which driver is entitled to the right-of-way in a parking lot.

One of the most common situations that can lead to a parking lot crash involves a driver that is backing out of a parking space. When a motorist fails to keep a careful lookout for other vehicles, they could back into another car. These collisions could happen with cars established in the lane or even other vehicles backing out at the same time.

Another common factor involves the intersection of two parking lot aisles. Unlike roadways, these aisles typically lack stop signs or traffic control devices. It can be difficult to determine which drivers have the right to proceed first in these situations. A driver could have the right-of-way when another motorist is attempting to enter their aisle from an intersecting lane, resulting in a wreck.

Given the challenges of determining liability in a parking lot crash, it can be risky to pursue these claims without the help of legal counsel. An Augusta attorney could assist a person injured in a parking lot accident carefully develop a strong claim for compensation.

Damages in a Parking Garage Accident Lawsuit

If the injury requires someone to take time off work, this further aggravates their financial burdens. An Augusta attorney could help a parking lot accident claimant recover damages that include:

  • Medical bills
  • Car repair costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished future earnings
  • Loss of consortium
  • Disability
  • Mental Anguish
