Car accidents can happen anywhere at any time—all that needs to be present is a car and negligence. Parking lots are especially dangerous because they’re typically tightly spaced and have cars moving and stopping while being surrounded by other vehicles, pedestrians, and moving objects, like shopping carts.

It’s important to be extra cautious when driving through parking lots, and anywhere else where cars are parked and others are moving because you never know when someone might reverse. But if you’re driving through a parking lot and someone reverses into you, you might be wondering who is at fault? Let’s take a look and find out if the person backing up is always at fault.

Why Wouldn't Airbags Deploy in a Front-End Collision

The airbags are one of the most important safety features in your vehicle. When they deploy correctly, they can save you from serious or even fatal injuries. Everyone deserves to have the peace of mind that comes from knowing your car is safe and functional, and working airbags are a critical component of that.

Unfortunately, malfunctions do happen on occasion. There are a number of missteps and mistakes that can happen during manufacturing that result in the airbags failing to deploy. In many cases, the manufacturer can be held liable for injuries that resulted from this problem. If you were recently in a car accident where the airbags didn’t deploy, you should understand the possible explanations for what went wrong.

Intersections are where most accidents take place because they involve traffic and pedestrians crossing paths and require them to strictly follow signs and signals. If a driver isn’t paying close attention to the signals or who’s going through an intersection, it can easily lead to a collision between two drivers or a car and a pedestrian. These accidents are especially dangerous because usually nobody sees them coming and the speed causes catastrophic damages.

Most drivers have become desensitized to the danger that comes with driving a car on the road with other cars. That desensitization has allowed drivers to believe that multitasking while driving is a completely safe and normal thing to do. In reality, multitasking while driving is distracted driving, which is incredibly dangerous and can easily lead to collisions.

When a distracted driver’s actions cause a wreck that injures you or damages your property, you should feel comfortable taking legal action that holds them accountable. A car accident lawyer from Shrager & Sachs will guide you through the legal claims process and ensure that you feel confident in getting the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
