A man has filed a lawsuit in Chicago against several parties following a parking lot accident that caused serious injuries. Most people do not think that they could be hurt in when cars collide in a parking facility. But in this case, the man suffered severe shock, a contusion, broken bones, lacerations, and bruises as a result of the collision. The victim also aggravated some pre-existing injuries in the accident. The accident happened on the premises of an automobile auction company. The company sells cars and has a large parking area.
If you have been injured in a car accident, you could be entitled to receive monetary compensation through an auto accident claim.
The accident happened when another driver, an employee of a security company, allegedly failed to observe a caution sign that was painted on the road surface. The accident occurred near an intersection on the parking lot premises. The employee was patrolling the parking lot when the impact occurred. According to the lawsuit, this driver was negligent by not following the posted road sign, and was likely traveling too fast. The plaintiff suffered injuries and filed a lawsuit against the security driver as well as the automobile auction company, seeking more than $50,000 in damages.
When an accident happens, it is usually caused by one driver’s negligence or reckless behavior. One driver typically has the right-of-way while the other does not. The first step in an injury case is to establish liability. In this case, the security driver allegedly caused the accident. Once liability is determined, the next step is to determine negligence. Negligence is the failure to act in a careful manner, particularly when knowing that their actions could cause harm. In this case, the automobile auction company has a large number of vehicles on the property and they are moved around quite frequently throughout the day. The security driver was both liable and negligent, according to the lawsuit.
Nobody expects to get into an accident and when one happens, it can be a traumatic experience. This can be especially true if you are badly hurt. Head injuries are one of the most common injuries that happen as the result of a vehicle accident. Head trauma can be severe and it requires immediate medical attention. If you have been in an accident that caused you to hit your head, do not delay in going to the hospital for emergency medical care. Some signs of trauma do not show up immediately, yet the impact could have caused brain trauma that will manifest later. In this particular case, the man suffered many injuries and actually went into shock.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident that was caused by another party’s negligence, you might be able to receive monetary compensation for your medical expenses and other losses.
