Who Is At Fault in a Parking Lot Accident?

Many people think that when they exit the highway and pull into the parking lot, the danger of an accident is over. It’s common for drivers to begin dialing or texting, unbuckling the seatbelt, and reaching for objects in the car even as they prepare to park. But parking lot accidents are more common than we might think.

The following fact should encourage us to think twice before driving carelessly in a parking lot: Nearly 20% of car accidents happen in a parking lot or garage—that’s more than 50,000 crashes a year. Thousands of injuries and deaths result from parking lot accidents each year, and roughly 40% of those deaths are pedestrians, especially vulnerable individuals like children, infants in strollers, and elderly pedestrians.

This selected group of individuals will sit, listen to the story, the facts, and the evidence presented, and will finally render their decision. And the decision they make as a group will dictate the future course of your life. This means that your life, in no uncertain terms, depends on the decision that jury makes.

Not a day goes by that a client doesn’t ask me what is going to happen in a deposition. I give my clients the simple truth about the nature of a deposition: it is a glorified question and answer session. Unlike the violent, outburst-filled depositions you may have seen on TV, most real-life depositions are pleasant, non-combative exchanges of information between opposing parties in a legal case. But whether your case is one of personal injury or criminal defense, you need to have the right lawyer to defend you. There are things that can happen in a deposition which could create serious problems for your case in the long run.
