The Miami car accident lawyer at the Perazzo Law Firm, Jonathan Perazzo, shares insight into car accidents that involve parking and the common accidents that occur while looking for or pulling out of a parking spot.

Every motorist must eventually detain their vehicle and get out. This action is called parking. Every driver knows this. But what many drivers don’t realize is how many accidents occur during the whole parking procedure, and how common parking accidents are in cities like Miami, Orlando, and Kissimmee. Parking your car or truck, be it at a Publix parking lot; between two other cars on a city street, or in the driveway of your home, requires attentiveness that go beyond basic driving skills. Just like turning left at an intersection requires the use of your turn signal, so should parking your car to avoid and accident require the use of proper signaling, as well as ample reaction time. Many drivers in Miami, for example, spend seemingly precious moments of their time looking for a parking space on congested city avenues or streets. When they spot a parking spot, they may maneuver their vehicle very abruptly by either making a sudden stop or lane change. Sudden stops and abrupt lane changes are a main cause of car accidents in Miami and other major cities in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Orange County.
