Parking Garage Accidents
Parking garages are helpful structures used to maximize parking in large cities or densely populated areas like shopping malls and hospitals. Parking garages can provide a large number of parking spaces, but they can also be the setting for serious car accidents if people drive recklessly. Parking garages can be extremely crowded with small parking spaces and even smaller lanes to drive down. If drivers act negligently, they are putting innocent lives at risk.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident in a parking garage, you may be eligible for financial compensation. For the legal assistance you need, contact an experienced Des Moines car accident lawyer of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. today at 877-327-2600.
Possible Accidents and Causes
In order to avoid an accident inside a parking garage, drivers should always be cautious when looking for a space, when parking, or when leaving a space. Because most garages force you to make blind turns around corners to go to the next level, you are at risk of hitting another car or pedestrian if you are driving too fast. Some of the most common causes of accidents inside parking garages are:
- Distracted driving. If you are using your cell phone or doing something else while driving through a garage, you may not have time to react to another car or pedestrian.
- Taking turns too fast and possibly hitting other vehicles or pedestrians.
- Ignoring signs and going the wrong direction.
