    Compensation for multi-storey car park accidents

    Compensation for multi-storey car park accidents

    Multi-storey car parks are becoming more common in town centres as land becomes scarce. Many shopping malls have multi-storey car parks attached to them to encourage people to visit their shops. These car parks often fill up with a lot of vehicles and can become susceptible to multi-storey car park accidents.

    Accidents in car parks

    If multi-storey car parks are not well designed they may become dangerous. The route that cars drive through the car park and the signage to guide drivers through is all important to ensure that multi-storey car park accidents do not happen. If vehicles are not clearly directed through the car park then crashes and accidents can happen when it is unclear who has right of way or if other cars cannot be seen. Sometimes it may be necessary for mirrors to be put in place to help drivers to see around corners for oncoming traffic.

    Another issue that can cause multi-storey car park accidents is the height of some of the parking levels. Proper barriers are needed to ensure that cars cannot accidentally fall if driven or reversed too close to the edge. These barriers are also important to prevent pedestrians, and especially children who may be less aware of the dangers, from falling from high levels which can cause serious injuries and even death.

    Pedestrians are vulnerable in car parks because of the space that they share with vehicles. In multi-storey car parks they can be more at risk because of vehicles driving up and down to different levels where they may not be seen. Most multi-storey car parks have signs up to warn pedestrians not to walk up the slopes between levels and instead there should be walkways especially for pedestrians. Poorly-designed car parks can result in pedestrians being unseen and being injured by vehicles driving through the car park.
