A few weeks ago, several individuals sustained serious injuries in the parking lot of a Las Vegas Walmart after they crashed into a planter box and a stop sign. After colliding with these objects, the car ricocheted into the tree and into a shopping cart corral.
It is unsure why this single car crash occurred— whether the driver was at fault or whether Walmart could be held responsible for placing the objects in an obstructive and unsafe manner in the parking lot. What this story illustrates: even in the event of a single car crash, other parties could be liable.
Many people file a personal injury lawsuit when another driver drives poorly and causes a collision. Few think to file for damages when they are involved in a single car crash that could have had other factors involved. After you are involved in a car accident, it is important that you make sure your car was not malfunctioning or that the road condition did not lead to your accident. Many times the city or a car manufacturer can be held responsible for a car crash. At other times, multiple parties— like another driver and the city— can be held liable for the injuries you sustained.
