Garage and Parking Lot Accidents
Too many people take parking for granted. It easy for a motorist to be distracted by a number of things when driving through a parking lot or parking a car, and even though speeds are typically lower in parking garages and parking lots, distracted motorists can still cause devastating injuries to pedestrians, other motorists, and parked vehicles.
No matter what excuse someone uses, a motorist must take responsibility for his or her actions behind the wheel. Whether an accident occurs on the highway or in a parking lot, you should not be forced to deal with the costs of an accident that was caused by another party.

Being courteous and defensive in your driving will go a long way toward keeping you safe in a parking lot or parking garage. This is especially true when anxieties are running high in scenarios such as holiday shopping or attending a special event. By keeping the following in mind, you may be able to avoid an accident:
- Do not maneuver suddenly into parking spaces
- Do not speed down lanes of parked cars
- Do not compete for parking space
- Watch for pedestrians and other vehicles
- Exit parking spaces slowly
In general, one of the most important things you can do to avoid parking lot accidents is to be patient.
