Determining the Party Responsible
Parking lot accidents can occur for a number of reasons. At times, they are caused by unsafe parking lot conditions, causing pedestrians to slip or trip and fall. Some examples of unsafe property conditions are as follows:
- Uneven pavement
- Standing water
- Weather-related hazards left uncleared
- Debris left uncleared away
- Dim lighting
- Inadequate security
On the other hand, parking lot accidents can sometimes happen due to driver negligence, such as:
- Failing to look before backing out of a parking spot
- Driving while intoxicated
- Driving while distracted
- Ignoring traffic signs
- Making wide turns
- Driving too fast
Gathering Evidence for Your Claim
To win a personal injury claim, we’ll have to prove you were hurt as a direct result of someone else’s negligence, in this case, most likely either a negligent driver or property owner. To prove as much, we’ll have to gather and present evidence. We can use the following to prove your injury claim:
- Pictures of the unsafe parking lot conditions
- Surveillance footage of the accident
- Witness testimony
- Medical documentation or bills
- A copy of the police report filed at the scene
As long as we can produce sufficient evidence to prove your injury was directly caused by another party’s negligence, we should recover the compensation you deserve and need to heal.
