Liability In Parking Lot Accidents
There are a number of sources of liability in parking lot accidents. Drivers have a responsibility to keep an eye out for pedestrians and to take steps to avoid accidents. Parking lots are particularly dangerous because pedestrians and drivers must constantly interact. Most parking lot accidents happen when drivers are either speeding or distracted. Being backed into is another very real danger and cause of a number of accidents.
In addition to driver error, a property owner may face civil liability for an accident that takes place in their parking lot. According to the California Civil Code § 1714 subsection (a), “Everyone is responsible, not only for the result of his or her willful acts, but also for an injury occasioned to another by his or her want of ordinary care or skill in the management of his or her property or person, except so far as the latter has, willfully or by want of ordinary care, brought the injury upon himself or herself. […] The extent of liability in these cases is defined by the Title on Compensatory Relief.”
The family of a victim that died in a parking lot accident may have the ability to seek justice through California’s Code of Civil Procedure 377.60. A wrongful death attorney can examine the specific facts of your case and let you know what your options are. An attorney can investigate your case free of charge and determine if the property owner was negligent. Damages in a wrongful death claim may include compensation for lost wages, loss of companionship and pain and suffering.
