Due to their confined space and high foot traffic, drivers in parking lots and garages may be more vulnerable to getting into motor vehicle wrecks. While many of these collisions occur at low speeds, they maintain the potential for serious injury. A Columbus parking lot accident lawyer could offer guidance on recovering monetary compensation for these injuries.

Determining the cause of a parking lot accident is often complicated. In some cases, more than one party may share in the responsibility. A hard-working car wreck attorney could help you identify the person responsible for the accident and hold them financially accountable.

Causes of Parking Lot Accidents

Many parking garages and lots lack traffic signs, making it difficult to determine which driver has the right of way. However, drivers in the aisles of parking lots always have the right of way. Many accidents occur when cars back out of parking spots and strike a vehicle in the aisle. When this occurs, the vehicle pulling out of the parking spot is often at fault.

When the accident involves two vehicles in intersecting aisles, the right of way usually rests with the driver remaining in the same aisle. In other words, drivers turning into a different aisle should defer to vehicles already established in that lane. If they do not, they could be responsible for the damages.

Visibility also may play a role in these crashes. When a driver is backing out of a spot, they must be sure to check all mirrors and their surroundings before continuing. However, if a motorist fails to do so or if another vehicle or pedestrian enters their blind spot, a collision may occur.

All of these factors, as well as others, have the potential to play a role in an accident. A driver injured in a parking lot could seek legal guidance from a skilled accident attorney in Columbus who could help determine the cause of their wreck.

Compensation from a Parking Garage Accident Lawsuit

Those involved in a parking lot or garage collision often suffer bodily harm and property damage. A parking garage accident lawyer in Columbus could help an injured claimant seem compensation for all types of losses.

Compensation relating to a person’s injuries could be substantial. The cost of treating these injuries is often expensive, and these damages only may contribute to a portion of an individual’s losses. Other damages may include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of consortium
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Reduced earning capacity

The cost of repairing a vehicle following this type of accident also can be substantial. Modern vehicles are designed to protect passengers in a crash. The technological advances that come with these vehicles can dramatically increase the cost of repair. A successful claim could pay for repairing or replacing a damaged vehicle.
