I Was Hit By A Driver Turning Into A Parking Lot. Can I Sue The Driver For My Injuries?
Yes. You should be able to bring a lawsuit against the driver for failing to yield the right-of-way to you. Drivers pulling in from the street to a parking lot are not at liberty to drive however they want. In the same manner, drivers exiting parking lots have to slow down and look for pedestrians, bicyclists, and other cars before merging into traffic.
When a driver fails to slow down and use caution when entering a driveway, he or she may be held responsible for hitting a pedestrian on the way into the parking lot. If you were walking carefully and paying attention, you should have no problem holding the careless driver responsible for your losses and damages.
You are more than likely entitled to compensation for your hospital bills, surgical costs, physical therapy expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. To make sure you don’t miss out on any compensation due to you following your pedestrian accident in South Florida, you should hire an experienced lawyer who can fight for you.
