    Car boot sale injury advice


    Most car boot sales pass without any incident, but if you have been involved in an accident at one recently, you may now be looking for the best car boot sale injury advice available. Accident Advice Helpline could be a great help to you if this is the case.

    Car boot sales

    Car boot sales can be enjoyable social events as well as perfect places to find unusual or low-priced items for sale. They are relatively easy to organise and can attract people from a wide area, keen to check out any bargains. Car boot sales often take place in a field, parking space or someone’s driveway. They are relatively straightforward events, with people interested in selling things coming in their car and much of the trade involving cash in hand. When you go to a car boot sale, you are unlikely to worry about your personal safety. Accidents are thankfully relatively rare, with a low level of risk at such events.

    However, this is of little comfort to you if you were recently injured at a car boot sale. You may have been put at risk by going to a sale taking place in an unsafe area. The field may have been boggy or have been recently dug up, leaving holes that may not have been clearly visible. You could have broken your ankle or had a nasty fall because of this. Or one of the vendors may have acted negligently in displaying his items for sale. You could have been hurt by handling a risky item, possibly injuring your hands or having it fall on you. The vendor’s car could have driven into you, or the car boot lid fallen on your head or shoulders.

    If your car boot sale injury happened because of someone else, you could be eligible to claim financial compensation for your injury.

    Finding advice

    To start checking if you are eligible to make an accident claim, contact Accident Advice Helpline today. When you call us, one of our call advisors will go through your car boot sale accident with you and try to determine who was culpable for it. Your advisor will take your details and check if you have any supporting evidence for your case. A strong basis for an accident claim can include clear factual details, your medical records, witness statements and perhaps the other person’s admission of culpability. Even if the other person does not admit he or she was at fault, culpability may be clear from other factors.
