Parking lots are busy places with drivers pulling in and out of spaces, pedestrians making their way into stores and walking back to their cars, teenagers skateboarding or bicycling around, and
the occasional rogue shopping cart zooming by. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 1 in 5 car accidents happen in parking lots. While parking lot accidents are usually not as
dangerous as other types of car crashes because of the lower speeds vehicles travel in a parking lot, they can still result in personal injuries and property damage.

Fault is generally easier to prove in parking lot accidents compared to other type of cases because there are usually more witnesses to the accident and there are often security cameras in the
parking lot or storefront. The challenge generally involves proving damages because insurance companies argue that you must not be that hurt because of the relatively low speed that parking lot
accidents happen compared to other types of collisions, such as highway accidents. While it is true that the speed of vehicles is generally less in parking lots, drivers can still suffer whiplash
or other soft tissue injuries that leaves them in pain and often require physical therapy to fully recover.
