Most of us don’t think twice as we enter or exit parking lots, as they are such a routine part of our lives. Unfortunately, parking lot accidents are more common than you may think, and if you’ve been hurt in one, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation. Read on and reach out to our Florida personal injury attorneys to learn more about these accidents and how we can help you.
How do parking lot accidents happen?
Parking lot accidents can occur for several reasons. For example, sometimes, parking lot accidents happen when a pedestrian encounters unsafe parking lot conditions, such as a large pothole, a slippery substance, or otherwise, and they slip and fall as a result. In other cases, careless motorists will strike pedestrians as they back out of their spots. Sometimes, low-speed accidents even occur between two motor vehicles in parking lots. Unfortunately, each of these accidents can result in serious injury, and if you’ve been hurt, you need a competent Florida personal injury attorney on your side.
What should I do if I’m hurt in an accident?
If you are injured in an accident, you should do everything in your power to document the facts surrounding it. For example, you should call 911 and take pictures of the accident and/or unsafe conditions that caused your accident. You should also get witness contact information. Ensure you are treated at a hospital or doctor’s office immediately. Not only is your health paramount, but your physician will also document the origin and extent of your injury, which can help prove damages in a personal injury claim.
As long as you and your attorney can gather and present sufficient evidence to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, you should recover financial compensation to help you deal with the physical, financial, and emotional burdens you’ve incurred due to your accident.
