    How to claim car park collision compensation

    When you think of a car accident you probably think of a high-speed collision, or at least one that happens on a road. However some accidents – indeed a lot of them – happen at low speed, either at roundabouts, at junctions or in car parks. In the case of the latter, they may happen at a low speed but they can still incur injuries to those involved.

    For example, if you are driving through a car park you will probably be going fairly slowly. However if you pull to a stop and someone else drives into you from behind, this could still incur whiplash injuries. Similarly you cannot always rely on everyone driving at a low speed while going around the car park. You may end up being hit by car going at 15mph or above if they are not driving as carefully as they should be.

    Would this entitle you to claim car park collision compensation?

    You might be entitled to receive compensation if you can prove someone else was responsible for the injuries you suffered during the accident. The speed at which you were going can help ascertain how bad your injuries turn out to be. However even at fairly low speeds, you can still be injured, albeit in a more minor way.

    If you can prove someone else caused the accident, you could end up being in a position to make a no win, no fee claim to get car park collision compensation. Even if your injuries are fairly minor, perhaps including bruising, mild whiplash or some other injury that occurred during the collision, you may still be entitled to try and claim compensation.
