As car and truck accident attorneys serving people in Nashville and across Tennessee, we receive many calls every year from people who were injured when another driver pulled out of a parking lot and collided with the caller’s car on a public street.
Tennessee law has very strict rules concerning the responsibilities of a person who leaves a private parking lot and pulls into a public street. The law provides that the driver leaving a parking lot must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and all vehicles approaching on the roadway. The failure to do so means that the driver is negligent as a matter of law and is legally responsible for harm caused by the error. This Legal Guide discusses the damages that may be recovered in Tennessee auto and truck accident cases.
