Parking Garage Accidents
Car accidents can happen anywhere at any time. While most people think of car accidents happening on major roads like highways, they can also happen in low-speed environments, such as parking lots and garages. Multi-level parking garages have become a very common feature, especially in large cities and downtown areas. While parking garages are very useful because they can fit a large number of cars into a confined area, they can also be very dangerous when drivers don’t act responsibly.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident inside a parking garage because of a careless motorist, you should consider taking action and hold the driver responsible.

Types of Parking Garage Accidents
Statistics indicate that a surprising number of accidents happen when a vehicle is parked. Parking garages can be especially dangerous due to a number of factors. Some of the most common causes of a parking garage accident include the following:
- Poorly lit areas (especially at night)
- Drivers speeding around corners
- Drivers disobeying one way signs
- Tight parking spaces and narrow lanes
Any of the above circumstances can cause an accident that may put you at risk of an injury and financial damage. However, you may not have to pay the expenses yourself if another driver’s negligent actions were the cause of the accident.
