Automatic Car Wash Accidents Injuries Attorney

Automatic car washes are a great modern-day convenience. An automatic car wash is just a computer that is programmed to push cars along a track, trigger soap, shampoo, rinse water and a blow dryer, wash the vehicle, and gently push it out the other end. If all goes well, you will have a brand spanking new car at the end of your car wash. But if it all goes horribly wrong, you will have issues and problems that can result in personal injuries, as a result of negligent handling and maintenance of the automatic car wash mechanisms.

Defective, Broken and Failure to Repair Car Washes

The mechanics behind an automatic car wash work on two distinct levels. On the one hand there are computer switches that control the speed the car goes through the car wash, push buttons to activate the washing mechanisms, proximity and photoelectric sensors, as well as other float, pressure, water and sensors to tell the car wash auto washer what to do. When these systems are not maintained to perfection, there will be bumps, jerks, cars falling off the track and other issues.

Slip and Fall Accidents

When the cars begin to pile up at the automatic car wash, and drivers are injured, they will need to exit their vehicles to get care for their personal injuries. At that time, a driver may slip and fall getting out of a car that has had an accident at a car wash. The drivers or other people going to the automatic car wash may also slip and fall in the car wash lounge area, if there is water, soap, soap scum or other slippery substances on the floor, or brought into the lounge area on the bottom of the shoes of the workers. This will cause a slipping hazard in this area of the automatic car wash.

Assault on the Property at a Car Wash

If you are using the car cleaning tools, drying towels, vacuums, or car freshener areas as vending machines near a car wash, you can be assaulted. When you get out of your vehicle, especially at night time hours, and you bend over to vacuum out or clean out your car, you are vulnerable to being assaulted. It is easy for someone to stand nearby to a car wash, and just wait for people to get out and start sorting their trash to throw away from their vehicle. In one second, as you start to clean the console or back seat, a perpetrator can easily come up behind you to assault you at a car wash.

Toxic Fumes and Inhalation at a Car Wash

You will always be at risk of breathing in and being exposed to toxic carbon monoxide, also called CO, fumes at a car wash. These poisonous gases are odorless and have no color, and they occur from the incomplete combustion of gas from a vehicle. The fumes of CO from an automatic car wash hold dangerous particulate matter that get trapped in the lungs, to cause injuries and symptoms such as:

  • Impaired and blurry vision
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Fatal injuries
  • Brain fog
  • Blood poison from lack of oxygen

Trip and Falls at the Automatic Car Wash

People are not familiar with walking around an automatic car wash, and can trip and fall on anything on the ground in those environments. It is easy to trip and fall at the automatic car wash over:

  • Traffic clearance sign
  • Traffic instructional sign
  • Metering gate
  • Brushes and pieces from brushes that fell off during operations
  • Chemicals for undercarriage cleaning
  • Foaming tire chemical sprayers

When you give our office a call, we are able to talk to you about your case, and go over the next steps to your case and determine how to get you the money you deserve for your personal injuries.
