Parking Lot Accident
Call this Fort Lauderdale, Florida Parking Lot Accident Lawyer if you’ve been injured in a parking lot anyplace in the State of Florida. Parking lot accidents occur every day. While parking lot crashes do not always involve significant speeds, they can cause serious injuries.
Parking lots typically have low speed limits. As such, vehicles in parking lots are usually travelling at low rates of speed (although this is not always the case). If the vehicle that hit you was driving above the parking lot speed limit and this contributed to your accident, then you may be able to use this fact to argue in Court that the other driver was negligent.
If the driver of the other vehicle was doing the speed limit, on the other hand, then the damage to the vehicles involved in the crash might not have been severe. Nevertheless, minor or moderate damage to vehicles involved in accidents can still cause serious injuries. Vehicles today are designed to absorb impact. When they don’t and there isn’t much damage to a vehicle involve in an accident, that could be because the impact was transferred to the vehicle occupants. Such force can result in serious injuries to those vehicle occupants. In other words, minor damage to vehicles involved in accidents can be coupled with serious injuries to vehicle occupants.
If you were injured in a parking lot wreck involving relatively minor property damage to the vehicles involved in the accident, Mr. Quackenbush may hire an expert called a biomechanical engineer to evaluate the accident, the damage to the vehicles involved and attempt to offer an opinion on how your injuries could have resulted from relatively minor property damage.

Parking lot collisions can occur due to all sorts of reasons. This can include drivers pulling out of parking spots and not looking where they are going. When a vehicle pulls out of a parking space in a parking lot, the driver has the obligation to yield the “right-of-way” to other vehicles. When the driver doesn’t do that, then he or she can be responsible for causing an accident.
Parking lot accidents include situations where two vehicles collide. They also include situations where one vehicle drives into a bicyclist or a pedestrian.Client Guidance for the Injured Provided by this South Florida Parking Lot Crash Attorney
In some situations, a moving vehicle in a parking lot will hit a stationary vehicle carrying occupants. In that situation, the occupants of the non-moving vehicle can easily be injured.
Sometimes liability in a parking lot crash case is disputed. In other words, sometimes both drivers in a parking lot wreck situation will maintain their own innocence. In that situation, video footage may be helpful. Parking lots frequently exist outside of business establishments, and many of those business establishments may have surveillance cameras. If you hire Mr. Quackenbush to represent you in your parking lot collision case, he will most likely attempt to see if any business establishment near the parking lot where your accident occurred had surveillance footage. It is important to do this as quickly as possible because most surveillance footage tapes are on “loops” – meaning that they tape over themselves. If you don’t retrieve the footage as soon as possible, it could be lost forever.
Finally, if your crash occurred in a parking garage, it will be important to determine if the garage had surveillance cameras. If it did, it will be important to retrieve the footage as quickly as possible to determine if it captured the accident. This can clearly go a long way to determining who was at fault.Contact this Broward County Parking Lot Wreck Law Firm for Help
