Liability In Car Accidents
Drivers are supposed to operate their vehicles safely and take steps to avoid accidents. Unfortunately, a number of accidents take place when driver’s experience “pedal confusion.” Pedal confusion occurs when a driver mistakes the accelerator for the brakes. These incidents may seem like freak occurrences, but they are actually fairly common.
There are a number of steps that companies can take to help prevent accidents like this. Bollard posts are sturdy metal or concrete structures that can be used to prevent cars from driving into storefront or other areas containing pedestrians. Depending on the facts of any case a property owner may face civil liability if a driver goes into a storefront.
Victims of storefront car accidents may be able to recover damages through a bodily injury claim. Damages may include money for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A car accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know how much you may be entitled to.
