They didn't slip and fall because the car was were it was. They slipped and fell because of what they were walking on. If it was uneven, slippery, poorly maintained, they might be able to sue the owner of the property. If it was common for a vehicle to be parked where it was, it strengthens the case that people often had to walk there.
