Car park accidents can happen in car parks of any kind, from pay and display and multi-storey car parks to office car parks, and if you have been injured in an accident in a car park, you might be able to make a personal injury claim. But just what types of injuries can you sustain and what are some of the most common causes of car park accidents?
How did you get injured in a car park?
Car parks can be surprisingly dangerous places, and most of us don’t stop to think about our personal safety, whether we’re parking at the supermarket to do some shopping or crossing the car park at work. Here are a few of the most common causes of car park accidents:
- Drivers reversing without looking and hitting other vehicles or pedestrians
- Aggressive driving
- Slipping on a wet or icy surface in a car park
- Injuries caused by tripping on a damaged staircase in a multi-storey car park
- Tripping on damaged ground in your car park at work
Slip, trip and fall injuries can actually be incredibly serious, and if you’re elderly, you’re more at risk of suffering a fracture in a fall. If you’ve been injured after falling on an icy surface in a car park, whether that’s at work, in a supermarket car park or in some other type of car park, the management could be held responsible. Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a 100% no win, no fee claim within three years of your accident.
What injuries have you suffered?
The common causes of car park accidents could lead to serious injuries such as broken bones, head injuries and crush injuries like broken ribs (if you’re hit by a reversing vehicle, for example).
