Who is Liable in a Parking Lot Accident?

Parking lots can be confusing. While there are clear lines directing traffic and where to park, drivers often fail to follow these lines and even when they do, there is no guarantee that other drivers are going to adhere to the rules of the parking lot. A parked car is also not free from possible damage. Because of the reduced sightlines when reversing out of your parking spot, it can be easy to miss an oncoming car or correctly judge the distance between you and another vehicle. Here are several points that can determine who is liable in a parking lot accident:

  • Thouroughfair – A car that is currently in the thoroughfare and is in motion has the right of way. If a vehicle entering the thoroughfare collides with the previous vehicle, then the entering car can be held fully liable for the damages.
  • Parked Vehicle – When a car in motion strikes a parked vehicle, the car in motion is typically held liable. However, if the car is improperly parked then the situation becomes more complex. Negligence will determine who is most at fault in this case.
  • Shopping Cart – Most parking lots have rules regarding the governance of shopping cart damages, but negligence can still play a role in these types of accidents. If a cart collector allows carts to get out of his control and collide with a vehicle, then the parking lot owner can be held liable. If carts are scattered around the parking lot and aren’t being collected and one hits your vehicle, then the parking lot owner can also be held liable.
  • Parking Lanes – When two vehicles are in motion in a parking lane, typically the same rules that govern turning and right-of-way on any public road must also be followed in a parking lot. Weather conditions and the positions of the vehicles can complicate this matter.
  • Walkways – Pedestrians have the right of way in all walkways. A car entering a walkway must yield to a pedestrian in the walkway. A pedestrian that is struck by a car that doesn’t adhere to this law can sue the driver of the car for liability and damages.

These are just a few of the stipulations that govern the rules of a parking lot. If your parking lot accident includes a different reason for the accident, you need to speak with our parking lot accident lawyers in St. Louis immediately to ensure that your claim is fully protected and fought for.
