Compensation for an Accident in a Car Park

When it comes to driving a car, one of the most common things that we will have to do is park it. Car parks can be found right across the country almost anywhere and are most common around supermarkets, large department stores and in city centres. When it comes to car parks, due to the rather small nature of their design, and the fact that there is often a great deal of competition for a limited amount of parking spaces it can lead to impatient drivers and careless pedestrians.

Whether you are a pedestrian or a driver, if you are involved in an accident in a car park which was not fault of your own, and were injured as a result, then you may be able to claim compensation for any costs that you have incurred.

What types of accidents can happen?

When it comes to accidents in car parks there are a number of different ones that can happen and these can lead to a number of different injuries. Car park injuries will commonly involve a car and they can involve a collision between two cars or between a car and a pedestrian. Accidents in car parks can also include moving cars hitting a stationary car as they are attempting to park, particularly if it is a tight parking spot. 

What injuries can I incur?

When it comes to being injured in a car park accident there are a number of injuries that you could incur, some of the most common include:

  • Head and neck injuries including whiplash which could result from a car collision
  • Broken bones and limbs for pedestrians who may have been hit by a car
  • Bruises, cuts and grazes.

Any incident that involves a car can be potentially very dangerous to the health of any individual. If serious head or neck injuries are sustained it could lead to potential long term injuries or even death. 

Who can I claim against?

When it comes to making a claim, in general you can claim against anyone who has been at fault and caused you an injury. In the case of a car park accident this could be the driver of a car which may have hit your car or you hit you as a pedestrian, or a pedestrian who may have walked in a banned area and therefore caused you to make an evasive manoeuvre.
