Although he has dedicated his life to helping the injured, he would rather you avoided the injury altogether when possible.

When it comes to parking lot accidents, a little awareness and precaution can go a long way in preventing an accident and the need for legal representation. The next time you pull into a parking lot, whether it is to go to work or shop for groceries, try to remember the following safety tips to avoid a collision:

  • Slow down. Although many parking lots fail to have speed limit signs posted, you should never exceed 15 mph in an enclosed lot, especially when pedestrians are present.
  • Pay attention. The majority of parking lot accidents occur as a result of poor visibility. In addition to tight spaces, lots often have cars coming from every direction, cars suddenly moving without warning, stray carts, and pedestrians walking within five feet of your bumper. To stay safe, you must be able to identify and monitor all of these risks. This means paying attention to your surroundings at all times.
  • Keep your distance. If possible, park away from other cars. Besides the fact that walking is good for you, placing distance between vehicles can lower the risk of collisions caused by improper turns into tight spaces. You can also take advantage of “pull-through” spots when available to spare you from having to back out later.
