Accidents in Parking Lots can be Complex

Accidents that occur in parking lots are held to the same right-of-way rules as on the street. However, parking lot accidents involve different factors, which can make determining who is at fault confusing. Depending on the severity of the accident, it may be beneficial to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer.

At Chambers & Noronha, we are dedicated to helping victims of all types of accidents, including ones that happen in parking lots. Our Santa Ana firm is a leader in personal injury representation throughout Southern California.

Our attorneys are knowledgeable, accomplished and ethical. They can help you with all aspects of your claim, maximizing your financial recovery to cover medical bills, lost wages and other damages.

We Can Assist with All Types of Accidents

Common types of parking lot accidents include:

  • Driver backing out of space and colliding with a moving or parked vehicle
  • Two cars backing out at the same time and hitting each other
  • One moving car hitting another moving car in the aisles or intersections
  • A vehicle hitting a pedestrian who is walking between cars or in the crosswalk

Who is at fault, and if fault is shared, can vary depending on the circumstances of the accident. For example, the driver backing out of a space that hits another vehicle will typically be found at fault, but when two cars are both backing out at the same time, the fault may be shared.

Our lawyers understand the comparative fault laws in California, and are prepared to assist you with whatever your claim entails. We will carefully investigate the circumstances of your crash, working with experts including medical professionals, accident reconstructionists and economists to strengthen your claim. We are also skilled litigators who will prepare your case for trial and advocate for your best interest at every stage.
