Claiming compensation for an accident in a shopping centre car park

Shopping centres are often bustling locations with numerous people going about their daily lives, while the adjoining car parks are packed full with vehicles and other such hazards, making them quite unsafe areas. It is the responsibility of the shopping centre to ensure that these car parks are maintained to the highest standards of safety so that potential accidents are reduced to a minimum, but unfortunately this isn’t always the case and you could end up becoming a victim of negligence. Whether you are involved in a collision with another driver, you have tripped over a wet or uneven surface, or even been hit by a rogue shopping trolley, there are a number of instances where you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Where might I look to make a claim?

If you have been involved in an accident in a shopping centre car park that was through no fault of your own, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Some instances where you may be able to claim include:

·         Claims if you have tripped on an uneven surface

·         Claims if you have been involved in a collision with a road user

·         Claims if you or your vehicle has been damaged by a rogue shopping trolley

·         Claims against inadequate road signing (direction markers, speed limits, etc.)

Who could be responsible in this situation?

When it comes to making a claim for compensation as a result of being involved in an accident in a shopping centre car park there are a number of people who you could look to claim against. Whether it is the shopping centre itself, another customer or anyone else you believe has displayed negligence towards you, a claim could be taken out against them as a result of their actions. It is important to remember however that in order to be successful you first need to prove your allegations, so it is worth reminding to contact the shopping centre for any CCTV footage that they may have, such is their responsibility.
