You’d be forgiven for thinking that most road traffic collisions happen on busy roads, when cars and other vehicles are driving at speed. But what about other types of accidents? Accidents involving parked vehicles or a car park collision have the potential to cause serious injuries, depending on the vehicles involved. A car park collision could even occur when a vehicle hits a pedestrian or cyclist. If this has happened to you, Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury advisors are here to offer confidential, no-obligation advice.
Suffered cuts and bruises, broken bones or whiplash after a car park collision? You’re entitled to claim personal injury compensation if the other driver is to blame for the accident. It’s important to establish who is at fault, and if you have been injured, either as pedestrian or as another driver, the police will normally be involved, and witness statements will be taken.
Should you make a claim?
We believe you’re entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation if you have been injured due to somebody else’s negligence. Dangerous drivers, who reverse without checking their mirrors or pull into car park at speed without looking, should be held liable for the accidents they cause. It’s totally up to you whether or not to claim, of course, but in most cases you won’t need to go to court, as most claims can be settled in full over the phone. You could receive a substantial settlement which could cover medical costs and loss of earnings, compensating you for your pain and suffering. We’ve helped hundreds of people claim compensation for road traffic collisions since we were established in 2000, and today our patron Esther Rantzen recommends us for our excellent customer service.
The impact of injuries
People forget the impact that even minor injuries could have on your life. A month off work to recover from injuries could affect you financially, whilst more serious injuries could impact your quality of life in future. You may need ongoing care or treatment, which costs money, or you could be affected psychologically and suffer from depression or anxiety. We know that the aftermath of any accident is a difficult time, but we’re here to help. To find out more about how we could help you, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500, or take the 30-second test on our website, to see how much you could claim.
