If you have been involved in a parking lot car accident, there are several facts you should be aware of.
Most parking lots are considered to be private property, and most parking lot accidents occur at low speeds. This usually means there will not be anyone making bodily injury claims, and it is likely the police will not get involved to document the damages. However, having said that, whiplash injuries at low speeds are one of the most common car accident injuries documented.
Even if you feel your parking lot accident was minor and there were no damages, you must notify your insurance company of the accident. This will protect you if the other party involved makes a claim against you in the future. A parking lot accident is the most disputed accident in the area of automobile accident claims. You should also file a police report of the incident to protect your legal rights further.
