What Should I Know About Parking Lot Car Accidents in Manhattan?

Car accidents of any kind can have serious, lasting impacts on those who’ve been wrongfully injured. This is true when it comes to parking lot car accidents as well, even though many of them occur when drivers are traveling at low speeds. If you were recently hurt in a parking lot due to someone else’s negligence, you should read on and reach out to an experienced Manhattan car accident attorney from our legal team today. Here are some of the questions you may have about parking lot car accidents and how we can help if you’ve been hurt in one:

What are some of the most common causes of parking lot car accidents?

Parking lot car accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. Typically, though, they happen when motorists and pedestrians are negligent. For example, when someone doesn’t look both ways and behind them before backing out of a parking spot, they may very well strike a pedestrian who happens to be walking behind their vehicle. They can also sometimes occur when one or two drivers negligently maneuver their vehicles and strike one another. In some cases, parking lot accidents can also at least partially be attributed to negligent signage.

What should I do after getting hurt in a parking lot?

If you’re hurt in a parking lot accident, you should do what you can to document the incident and get immediate medical attention. Fortunately, in many parking lots, security cameras are in use that may have recorded your accident, which is typically the best way to prove an injury claim. However, relevant witness testimony, pictures of the accident/its aftermath, the police report, and medical documentation are all strong ways to prove injury claims as well. Our legal team can recover this evidence and use it to prove you were hurt as a direct result of another party’s negligence.

When should I contact an attorney?

Though the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims in New York is three years, the better answer to this question is “as soon as you can.” The longer you wait to bring your claim, the more challenging it will be to recover the compensation you deserve.
