    Compensation for an accident in a car park


    Car parks are busy places – often, you’re fumbling in your purse or the glove compartment for your parking ticket, or you’re looking for change to pay at the exit gate. You might even be distracted by your kids or other passenger in the car. Unfortunately, this makes it all too easy for an accident in a car park to occur. You could reverse into another vehicle or a pedestrian who is crossing the car park, resulting in serious injury.

    If you’ve been injured in an accident in a car park, you might be wondering if there’s anything you can do about it. It’s a good idea to get the driver’s details – the police will usually be involved if injuries have occurred – and any witnesses to the accident will be asked to give statements and provide their details. You could claim personal injury compensation, but you’ll need the services of a personal injury lawyer. Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim compensation, however you have been injured.

    Minor or serious injuries?

    You may be lucky enough to escape with minor injuries after a car park accident, such as whiplash or cuts and bruises. However, if you are a pedestrian who has been struck by a vehicle, it’s likely that your injuries may be more severe, even life-threatening. Here are a few examples of the types of serious injuries which could be sustained:

    • Head injuries such as brain injury
    • Facial injuries
    • Broken bones
    • Crush injuries, such as broken ribs
    • Loss of limb

    Serious injuries can impact the rest of your life. You will no doubt need time off work to recover, affecting your family financially. You may suffer from ongoing pain and discomfort which requires medical treatment or physical therapy – all this costs money. Contact us to claim compensation and we’ll factor all these things into working out your settlement. You could find you receive a substantial sum which relieves financial pressures and allows you to focus on recovering from your injuries.

    Making a full recovery

    Your health is the most important thing, and we want you to focus 100% of your energy on recovering after your accident. So let Accident Advice Helpline do the legwork – we’ll gather evidence to support your claim and work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
