The surprising place where most car accidents happen

If you're thinking about where most car accidents happen, what comes to mind first? Do you think about the interstate with its higher speeds? Do you think about the roads in the city during rush hour traffic? Do you think about country roads where people speed more often and see the police less often?

There are dangers everywhere, and it's important to be aware of them. That said, you may be surprised to learn that more crashes simply happen in parking lots.

That does not mean these are the most serious accidents. A lot of parking lot crashes are relatively minor. Someone backs out of a space and gets hit at five miles per hour by a car driving toward the end of the row. Everyone may be fine.

That said, these accidents can also be deadly. The reason that parking lots see such a high percentage of crashes is that there are a lot of cars, some of which are backing up, in a small space. You have to throw into the mix the fact that pedestrians are walking all over the place. Nowhere else in town will you drive so close to so many people who may walk out in front of your car at any moment. It's a recipe for disaster.

If you get hit in a parking lot, whether you're in your vehicle or on foot, you could suffer some serious injuries. You need to know if you have a right to seek out financial compensation for all of your costs, from lost wages to medical bills.
