Low-speed collisions are common in parking lots as motorists pull in and out of driving spaces and are unable to see approaching vehicles. These types of crashes typically involve minor damage to vehicles, however, there are other times they lead to serious and even fatal injuries—most often when they involve an unsuspecting pedestrian.
While there are a number of factors that can lead to parking lot accidents, driver error is one of the most prevalent causes.

Commercial parking lots are not the friendliest of places for pedestrians. While there are spaces clearly marked for cars to park, very few lots have designated walking areas. In an environment where people and moving vehicles are in such close proximity, accidents happen.
Often, they happen because a driver isn’t paying attention as he or she is backing up or when a blind spot obstructs the driver’s view. Some other common causes include:
Business owners and property managers alike should make every effort to clear parking lots of snow and ice, as well as keep them in good repair.
Since parking lot accidents typically happen at lower speeds, injuries tend to be slightly less serious. There are some exceptions to the rule, however, and we know even minor injuries can result in significant medical expenses or a loss of wages during recovery. Common injuries include:
It is important to note, injuries from an auto accident may not be immediately apparent because the rush of adrenaline in your body can mask the pain. For this reason, it is important to always seek medical attention following any type of parking lot accident.
