Parking lots are a magnet for auto accidents. They are filled with vehicles, with drivers vying for limited parking spaces, and there are frequently obstructions in the parking lot that make it difficult to see other motorist or pedestrians. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to return to your vehicle to find that it was damaged while parked in the lot. The Chicago area auto accident attorneys at Ankin Law Offices have vast legal experience representing victims in a wide variety of auto accidents, including those that commonly occur in parking lots such as hit and run cases, pedestrian accidents and cell-phone related accidents.

Because parking lot accidents frequently occur at low speeds, there may not be much, if any, immediate damage or injuries. It is important to stay calm and thoroughly assess the situation regardless of whether there appears to be no damage or injuries
Report the accident and seek medical attention. You should immediately notify the police of the accident. Even though there may be no apparent damages or injuries, it is important to adequately document the facts of the accident and take note of any damages or injuries as they become apparent. Notifying the police can help provide a thorough record of accident that includes all pertinent facts. Insurance companies frequently require a police report in order to process any claims, even if the damage is minor.
Notify your insurance company. You should promptly notify your insurance company of the accident. It is also helpful to obtain the insurance information of the other driver in order to facilitate the claims process.
