Parking LotParking lot fender benders are fairly common, as vehicles are moving in multiple directions with little visibility. If you're involved in one of these, the first thing you should do is to make sure everyone is OK and not injured. If anyone is injured, get medical help right away. Before moving the vehicles (and if it is safe), take some photos of the vehicle damage and where it is positioned. This could help the insurance companies when trying to figure out what happened.

After you get some pictures, move your car to an empty parking spot and trade insurance information with the other party. Your camera on your cell phone can be very handy in these situations. Usually the police don't respond to minor accidents on private property, but if the other party does no have insurance, or they refuse to cooperate, give the local police a call and see if they could come out to help. If anyone witnessed the accident, get their name and contact number.

Lastly, give your insurance company a call on their claims number, which is usually located on your insurance card.

Tips For Avoiding Parking Lot Accidents

  1. Check your surroundings before you get into your car.
  2. Look every which way when you are backing out of or pulling into a parking space.
  3. Keep your foot off the gas pedal when you are backing up. Inch out slowly with your foot ready to apply the brake.
  4. Watch for distracted pedestrians.
  5. Slow down.
A good car insurance policy can provide you the best protection at a price that fits your budget. Call Miller Insurance Agency at (409) 899-9531 for more information on Beaumont car insurance.
