New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyers: Parking Lot Accidents – Car and Pedestrians in Possible Peril
Parking lots can be more dangerous than you think, and accidents are far more common than most of us imagine. One of every five crashes takes place within a parking lot. Fourteen percent of all auto damage claims emanate from parking lot car collisions as well.
People for the most part aren’t paying attention to the actual road in parking lots. They mistake the lack of stoplights and stop signs for safety, and relax their defensive driving skills. In fact, many people are looking for the ideal parking spot or scanning the mall for their intended store location. Their eyes are focused anywhere but on the road, and they are certainly not watching out for unsuspecting pedestrians.
Pedestrians often emerge from between two cars, and drivers who aren’t paying attention do not see them. Sometimes, drivers who are backing up don’t look over their shoulders, and don’t see pedestrians in their blind spot.
