A: An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. These types of cases can be difficult in terms of apportioning liability. The larger insurance carriers sometimes have examiners that specialize in parking lot settings. They generally look at available surveillance video, eyewitness accounts, sketches, police reports, and other evidence. Good luck
