Why do so many pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists​ get hit by parking arm gates?

Mike Panish's (gate expert witness) office receives many calls each month from lawyers with personal injury cases relating to parking arm gates that come down on people. Calls come from attorneys representing the injured party and also from defense attorneys representing the facility or owner.

It is important for Mr. Panish to assess the site conditions and the equipment when determining why the accident occurred. There are many variations of the same type of accident, but there are big differences in who the responsible party is for the cause of injury.

What were the circumstances of the accident? Was the pedestrian or rider forced to go through the parking arm entrance or exit, or was there another route they could have taken like a pedestrian walkway or pathway?
