Shopping plazas are quickly returning to pre-pandemic congestion levels.  After over a year of mostly empty parking lots for your favorite stores, driving through these parking lots now feels like a game of cat and mouse to find the perfect parking spot.

It’s not all fun and games though as parking lots can be dangerous places where you need to be on the look-out when leaving your car and walking to the store.  Drivers are more focused on finding a parking spot then they are on avoiding a New Haven pedestrian accident and it could mean a dangerous accident for you.

Luckily as a pedestrian there are some things you can do.

It is incumbent on drivers in a parking lot to do more then just look for a parking spot.  Safe driving should extend to a parking lot as well so that accidents do not occur.  However, you, as the pedestrian can do your part to make sure you stay safe and out of harms way so you can avoid a New Haven pedestrian accident.

Every day parking lots are getting more and more congested and there will undoubtedly be a spike in pedestrian injuries.  If you are injured you may want to contact an experienced attorney who can review your case and protect your long-term interests.
