Parking Lot Accidents
Whether large or small, parking lot accidents can be frustrating. It can be confusing on who is as fault depending on the situation. Here are some tips that will help you if you find yourself in a parking lot fender bender:
Parking lots are private property the police won't typically get involved. If they do, normally the ruling is going to be 50/50 at fault.
Exchange information: Insurance companies, full names, phone numbers, and email address.
FIND A WITNESS! And it CANNOT be the person riding in your car. This might seem awkward at first but it will save you a HUGE hassle in determining fault. Otherwise, all parking lot accidents turn into a "he said she said" story, which means your insurance claim will end up being 50% at fault.
