Claiming compensation for an injury sustained in a public car park

Public car parks are usually very busy locations that are filled with a large number of people going about their daily lives, but with such a high amount of people there are also numerous hazards which could result in you becoming injured. It is the responsibility of the council to ensure that these car parks are maintained to the highest standards, 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 or you have tripped over a wet or uneven surface, 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 public car park that was through no fault of your own, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Some cases where you may be eligible 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 against poor lighting and lack of vision

·         Claims against inadequate road signing

·         Claims if your vehicle has been damaged.

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 public car park then there are a number of people who you could look to claim against. If another vehicle was at fault then you could claim against the driver, but you would most likely be able to claim against the council or business that is in charge of the car park for any other incident. If you believe that someone has displayed negligence towards you then you could look to recoup any losses you have incurred by making a claim against them. 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.
