What are the Most Common Causes of Florida Parking Lot Accidents?

Parking lots are among the most common places for accidents to occur. In most cases, these accidents involve motor vehicles, but not always. Sometimes, parking lot accidents are caused by unsafe property conditions, injuring pedestrians. If you were hurt in a parking lot accident, you’re most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you heal. Please continue reading and contact a knowledgeable Jacksonville parking lot accident lawyer from Ansbacher Law to learn more about how these accidents occur and how we can assist you through the injury claims process. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do most parking lot accidents occur?

Parking lot accidents occur for a number of reasons. Sometimes, motorists fail to look before backing out of parking spots, striking pedestrians or other vehicles as a result. In other cases, negligent signage causes confusion and auto accidents as a result. In other cases, drivers will simply take turns too tight or too wide, resulting in a collision. We’ve also seen dangerous parking lot conditions, such as standing water/slippery surfaces, potholes, and dim lighting, cause slip and fall accidents. That said, matter how you were hurt, if the accident wasn’t your fault, you likely qualify for compensation. Our firm is here to help you fight for the full and fair compensation that you deserve.

What damages am I entitled to if I’m injured in an accident caused by another person?

As long as you and your Jacksonville personal injury lawyer can gather and present sufficient evidence to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, you should receive compensation to help you cope with the economic and non-economic damages you’ve incurred as a result of your accident. Some examples of economic damages include the cost of lost wages from being unable to return to work and the cost of medical care you received as a result of your injury, among others. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, are made to compensate individuals for intangible yet very real damages caused by an accident, such as pain and suffering, lower quality of life, loss of consortium, emotional trauma, scarring/disfigurement, and more.

Don’t make the mistake of proceeding without a competent attorney in your corner. Without an attorney, you run the risk of missing deadlines and receiving insufficient compensation for your injuries. Ansbacher Law is here to help. Give us a call today so we can get started working on your case.
