Parked car accidents are rarer than moving vehicle accidents, but they can still be very dangerous and costly for those who are involved. These accidents might happen anywhere, but are rather common in parking lots, residential neighborhoods, school zones, and during rush hour traffic. Parked car accidents can involve lots of people, and they might cause a number of serious injuries. Additionally, these accidents can create huge costs for those involved as well, such as medical treatment (if a person is in the car when it’s hit) or vehicle repair or replacement costs.
