Car accidents happen every day in parking lots across Collier County and Southwest Florida. Most parking lot accidents occur at low speeds and don’t typically cause massive damage. However, determining fault in these types of incidents can be tricky. It can be difficult for drivers to understand who has the right of way, which is an important factor in determining liability.
Did you know that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there are 39.5 million medically attended injuries and poisonings every year, resulting in 42.3 million emergency room visits for accidental injuries? That’s 126.3 medically attended injuries per 1,000 people. The National Highway Traffic Safety Association reports that there were 37,461 fatalities due to motor vehicle accidents in 2016 (most recent statistics), which was an increase of 5.6 percent over the previous year. And nearly 6,000 pedestrians were killed in 2017 amid mounting signs that pedestrians and drivers are dangerously distracted.
Just outside the Talis Park Golf Club in Naples, Florida, LPGA Assistant Golf Pro Kristin Popowski’s life was forever changed after she left work late last year. While waiting to make a legal left turn on a green signal, she proceeded into the intersection, waiting for oncoming traffic to clear. When the light turned yellow, she continued to wait while oncoming traffic slowed to a stop. As Kristin began to finally make her turn, that’s when it happened.
In the blink of an eye, she was t-boned by a car that drove into the intersection past another vehicle that had stopped for the light. This sent Kristin’s car crashing into another vehicle before coming to a rest. Kristin blacked out, her airbags deployed and her golf equipment was scattered out on to the road.
