Parking Lot Dangers
Statistics indicate that approximately one-fourth of all traffic accidents involve at least one parked car in a parking lot. Drivers and pedestrians may assume that parking lots and garages are relatively safe because vehicles are not traveling high speed. However, the reality is that severe injury and costly property damage can occur wherever there are negligent motorists. Often, the injuries one sustains will require expensive medical treatment and this is a burden that the victims of another’s recklessness should never have to bear.
