Parking Lot Accidents vs. Typical Traffic Collisions
Traffic accidents in parking lots may not be subject to the same rules, regulations, and jurisdictions as most traffic accidents. Some of these factors can make it difficult to prove negligence and liability. For example:
- Some parking lots are private property
- Lanes, stop signs, etc. may be poorly marked
- Police (most of the time) won't write tickets in parking lots
How to Prove Liability after a Parking Lot Car Accident
Proving liability after a parking lot accident may be difficult. Poorly marked or unmarked lanes, etc. make it difficult to determine who is really at fault. If your accident involved significant property damage a serious injury, it is important to work with a skilled personal injury attorney. Like any personal injury claim, you must be able to demonstrate negligence. This obligation is called "preponderance of evidence," and is a legal term that refers to the plaintiff's burden of proof in a civil case. Without the help of an experienced lawyer, it may be difficult to provide this standard of proof.
