Road Traffic Accident with a Parked Car

When a person thinks of a road traffic accident, they are usually thinking of a high speed collision which results in the car becoming a total write-off and serious injuries to the occupants, but this is simply not always the case. Car accidents can happen at low speeds to, in fact they can happen while one car is stationary, and they have the potential to be just as dangerous and damaging as those which occur at high speeds.

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident which has involved a parked car and you have either collided with the parked car, or you have been in a parked car which has been hit, you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation. 

What are some injuries I could claim for?

Although many road traffic accidents with parked cars generally happen at low speeds this doesn’t mean that injuries don’t occur, and some of the most common injuries that you could claim for include:

  • Neck injuries including whiplash which may have been sustained from a sudden impact
  • Cuts and lacerations from broken glass
  • Broken bones or amputation from limbs which may become trapped
  • Head injuries including cuts, fractures and potential brain damage.

Who could I claim against?

Depending on your situation there are a number of people who you could consider making a compensation claim against. If you have hit a car which is parked illegally then you could claim against the owner of the parked car. Alternately if you are in the parked car, or you own  the parked car and it was hit by another negligent driver who may have been trying to park or simply driving past, then you could claim against the driver who is at fault.
