What Are The Actions To Take If You Get Injured In Parking Lot

It strains the imagination to try picturing an accident in a lot where there are rows and rows of parked cars. Yet that is a spot where accidents do happen. More importantly, just about any private citizen in Ontario could one day become involved in some type of parking lot accident.

Who can get injured?

Drivers, passengers and pedestrians, all of them are at risk.

Possible reasons for a collision between 2 vehicles:

• One or more of them is backing up;
• Driver turns quickly, in order to get into a space;
• One vehicle follows another too closely;
• Driver fails to heed the directions on a sign

Most likely reasons for a pedestrian to get hurt:

• Someone on foot and looking for a car does not watch where he or she is going;
• Someone in automobile does not check to see if any pedestrians are approaching, before opening the car’s door.

Actions linked to both collisions and injuries to pedestrians:

Driver does not yield the right-of-way or while waiting for a space, a driver decides to use a cell phone, and thus becomes distracted. If startled by a honk or other noise, the distracted driver might act without looking.

What to do if you get injured in parking lot:

Call 911; get ready to make your statement, regarding what has happened. Your statement will become part of the police report, which will be seen by the insurance company.

Seek medical help as soon as possible; do not provide the insurance company with an excuse for not covering your injury. If you are in possession of a camera or a hand-held device, use it to take pictures. Get pictures of both any vehicle damage and any injuries.

If you can obtain some pencil and paper, take notes; write down the parking lot’s name and location. Take down the name of nearby businesses, since any one of them might have a video camera that has been focused on the site of the incident that the police will be reporting. Once you have a Personal Injury Lawyer in Oakville, that lawyer can go after sources of video footage.

Do not share a large amount of information with the responsible driver. Provide that driver with only your name, your contact information, the number on your driver’s license and the information on your car insurance. Obviously, a pedestrian would not be expected to offer the last two pieces of information.

Both pedestrians and injured drivers should follow this advice: Do not make any references to your medical condition. Do not make any outright allegations, regarding the correctness of some action that was taken by a specific driver. Later, you might discover that the evidence does not support your allegations.

    С ними же совпадают и два первичных естественных желания ребенка.
