Parking Lot Accident
In Florida, a parking lot accident can arise in several different forms including the following:
- Two cars collide as the cars are both backing out.
- A person backs into another vehicle that is driving through the parking lot.
- A person runs a stop sign in a parking lot and crashes into another vehicle.
- A person hits a pedestrian walking through a parking lot.
- A person hits a child who is walking through the parking lot with a parent.
One type of incident that takes place in parking lots and driveways is referred to as a back over accident. It involves a person backing out a vehicle who tragically hits or runs over a child. Because of the height of the child and, at times, the inattention and distraction of the driver, these pedestrian accidents take place and cause serious personal injuries.

Liability or fault can often be a different and challenging issue when handling a parking lot accident case. Certainly, if one driver runs a stop sign in front of an independent witness, that case is not very difficult to prove from a liability standpoint. However, when two cars are backing out at the same time and crash rear end to rear end, this can be a challenging case from a liability standpoint. With respect to pedestrian parking lot cases, drivers should exercise due care in parking lots and drive at a safe speed to avoid hitting pedestrians. While a police report would be helpful to have to analyze the liability for fault for a case, there is no requirement that a police report be issued in order to handle a case for a person injured as a result of a parking lot accident.
