Causes of Parking Lot Accidents
If pedestrians don’t proceed with an abundance of caution, they can become seriously injured, even in a parking lot.

There are a number of factors that must be assessed in a parking lot accident case because of the vast number of possibilities that may have caused the accident. Some of the most common causes of parking lot accidents in Maryland include the following:
- Snow or ice left unattended
- Uneven surfaces
- Poor lighting

What should I do after a parking lot accident?
After being injured in a parking lot accident, you may be unsure of what to do. First, it is important to contact the police immediately so you can file a report. The officer who arrives on the scene will be able to create official documentation of the dangerous conditions that resulted in your accident. It is also important to get immediate medical attention after being involved in a parking lot accident, even if your injuries don’t initially seem very serious. This can help document your injuries which is important when dealing with the insurance company. If you are able to do so, it is important that you take photos or videos of the scene of the accident before leaving in order to document the condition which caused your injury.
A successful accident lawsuit can help you recover significant damages that you may be entitled to because of the parking lot owner’s negligence. Damages may help you reduce some of the burdens that were caused by the accident. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering. As previously mentioned, it is critical to fulfilling the burden of proof if you wish to recover damages, which is why it is so important to document as much as you possibly can before leaving the scene of the accident.
