Liability In Parking Lot Accidents
Parking lots can be very dangerous places. Drivers are required to operate their vehicles slowly and remain alert. According to California Vehicle Code 21950, “The driver of a vehicle approaching a pedestrian within any marked or unmarked crosswalk shall exercise all due care and shall reduce the speed of the vehicle or take any other action relating to the operation of the vehicle as necessary to safeguard the safety of the pedestrian.” The family of any victim that died in a pedestrian accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
