Our Michigan car accident lawyers represent clients who are injured when hit by a car in a Wal-Mart parking lot. Wal-Mart is a major retail chain with stores throughout the entire State of Michigan. Wal-Mart has both stand alone stores and stores in large strip malls.
Due to the car traffic in these parking lots and the steady stream of pedestrians walking to and from the store, our attorneys are frequently contacted by clients were injured as a result of being struck by a car in the parking lot. These include both public parking lots, like shopping centers, and private parking lots like apartment complexes, office buildings, and factories.
A driver in a parking lot has the legal duty to operate a vehicle in a safe manner as a driver on the public streets. The driver must also drive at a safe speed and give proper lookout to pedestrians walking to their cars and exiting the store. A person hit by a car in a Wal-Mart parking lot accident has the same legal rights as a person injured in an accident on a public road or highway.
First, the injured person can file a personal injury claim against the negligent driver. This includes claims for damages such as for pain and suffering, disability, and scarring or permanent disfigurement.
Also, the accident victim can file a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance Benefits.
