Hurt in a Parking Lot Accident?

Get the Legal Advocacy You Need To Recover

McCoy & McCoy is a Hartford-based personal injury law firm whose lawyers have been helping accident victims and their families since 1960. We are committed to providing clients throughout Connecticut the one-on-one service they need to obtain real results.

Our principal lawyer, Frank McCoy Jr., is certified in civil trial law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy – a distinction that fewer than 0.5 percent of all Connecticut lawyers have earned.

If you have been injured in a parking lot accident, hiring our firm to represent your case will give you a significant advantage when fighting to obtain the full and fair compensation you seek.

It is not uncommon in this type of accident for the case to become a matter of “he said, she said.” While you may be the true victim of the accident, make no mistake that the other party and his or her insurance company will work quickly to try and negate responsibility by challenging your claims.

Our firm will be there to advise you of your rights, help you gather the documentation to substantiate your claim and assist you in the aggressive pursuit of the compensation to which you are rightfully owed.

What Do I Do If I Have Been Hurt In A Parking Lot Accident?

Be careful, never admit fault and consult an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

 One of the first things you need to do is seek medical attention for your injuries. If your injuries are minor, and can wait to be looked at, we advise you to immediately exchange contact information with the other driver and contact the police, so they can take your statement and file a report.

 Keep in mind that you should only provide facts and contact information. Everything you say can and will be used by the negligent party’s insurance company or attorneys to try and prevent you from being able to recover the compensation you seek. It is vital that you never admit guilt or give any indication that you may be even partially to blame.

You are the victim here. 

 You are the one who suffered injuries. In some cases, the other party’s insurance company may attempt to try to turn the tables on you and make you responsible for your own injuries.

You could find yourself having to fight to avoid paying damages on an accident that was not your fault. We have seen that victims who are proactive in gathering evidence and obtaining contact information for any potential witnesses often have advantage over those who fail to take action in their own defense.

1. Get contact information and insurance information from the other driver.


2. Call the police to file a report and statement.


3. Pictures should be taken of the scene. 


4. Specific notes should be made as to the circumstances leading up to the accident, weather conditions, time of day and any other points you think may be relevant.

Parking Lot Accident Attorneys
As soon as possible following your accident, waste no time in contacting our firm to obtain legal counsel and representation. We will be able to assist you by reporting the accident to the insurance company on your behalf, and we will work with you closely to build your case and help you to prove the responsible party’s negligence. Parking lots are a prime location for minor car accidents and pedestrian accidents. Even when a parking lot is not crowded, there are generally a number of vehicles and people moving in and out of the area at all hours of the day. Drivers who are driving too fast, distracted or who have their attention on something else, may not notice the vehicle backing out in front of them or the person passing behind them. Accidents can and do occur, along with injuries, even when vehicles are traveling at low speeds. Broken bones, cuts, scrapes, neck injuries, whiplash and sometimes more serious injuries can all happen even in a minor “fender bender” accident.
