Parking lot accidents sometimes occur as a result of careless drivers, such as those who back out of parking spots without first checking for pedestrians or other vehicles. However, they also often happen in the form of slip or trip and fall accidents as a result of dangerous property conditions. Some of the most common causes of parking lot slip or trip and fall accidents are as follows:
The first thing you should do after a parking lot accident is dial 911; this is especially true if you’ve been critically injured and need immediate medical care. Police will arrive at the scene and document the accident. From there, you should ask witnesses of your accident for their contact information and take pictures of any evidence regarding your accident, including of your injuries and the property hazard that caused your injury, if applicable.
You should also keep copies of medical documents and bills regarding your injuries and ensure you hire a seasoned parking lot accident lawyer who can help you gather and present all other evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim.
