Parking Lot Accidents
Fortunately, many parking lot crashes in Hollywood and across South Florida tend to be minor fender benders because most people in parking lots are driving relatively slowly. This is not universal, however. Serious and even fatal accidents can and do occur in parking lots all the time. Pedestrian collisions and crashes involving children, especially, are likely to result in life-threatening injury, even at low speeds.

Parking lot car collisions are quite common for a number of reasons:
- There are many people using parking lots at the same time, including pedestrians, trucks, and cars
- People are pulling out of parking spots or trying to get parking spots, and this can cause confusions and accidents
- Drivers may be distracted by what they are going to do next (such as shopping at a shopping mall) rather than on driving
- There may be visibility concerns due to larger vehicles or other obstructions nearby
These dangers can create dangerous situations where fender-benders as well as life-threatening pedestrian accidents can happen.Different Types of Parking Lot Crashes
Parking lot collisions, since they do involve a number of different types of road users, can result in many types of crashes, including:
- Right of way collisions
- Pedestrian accidents
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Rear-end collisions
- Fender benders
- Single-vehicle collisions
These types of accidents can be life-altering and can cause permanent, expensive injury. A serious, permanent injury can cost more than a million dollars in lost income and medical bills. Even a fracture you expect a full recovery from can end up costing tens of thousands of dollars in lost wages, rehabilitation costs, medical costs, and other expenses. It is important to take these costs into consideration and to pursue compensation if you qualify so that you do not have to pay all the costs yourself.
The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group believe that if you have been injured through no fault of your own, you deserve justice and compensation. Florida law allows you to pursue compensation in a legal claim if your injuries were caused by a reckless or negligent person or entity. If your parking lot accident, for example, were caused by a distracted driver or by a careless driver, you may have a personal injury claim.
