Have you been involved in an accident in a parking lot? It happens more often than you might imagine. Many times accidents in parking lot cause much confusion because it is sometimes difficult to determine who was at fault. In addition, many times when a police agency responds to the accident, they are not inclined to give a citation/ticket to any of the parties creating even more doubt.
Parking lot accidents happen many times times because people are distracted. For example: they are putting their seat belts on while they are pulling out of their space. Other times it is because drivers are in a hurry to get to an open spot and forget the stop sign or do not see another vehicle. The reality is that most parking lot accidents can be avoided by being aware of your surroundings and driving defensively. Of course, there are those situations that cannot be avoided - an accident that was not your fault.
Surprisingly one out of every five motor vehicle accidents take place in a parking lot. In addition, 14% of all automobile property damage claims come from parking lot accidents. One reason why so many accidents happen in parking lots is because pedestrians and drivers feel a false sense of security.
