    North Kesteven claims


    You may have noticed that some car parks have little ramps that rise up from the ground to let people in an out once they either take a ticket or make a payment. These are often used as an alternative to gates/barriers. You might also have seen bollards that mechanically lower and raise from the ground. These sorts of things are great as far as they go, but what would happen if they malfunctioned at the precise moment you were driving over them?

    If you were injured a result of a ramp or a bollard rising up from the ground at an inopportune moment and were to be injured as a consequence, there will be a possibility that you might well be able to take some sort of 100% no win no fee personal injury action against its owner/operator.

    Car park ramps, automated bollards and North Kesteven claims

    Picture the scene; you’ve just done a spot of shopping at your local supermarket and met a friend for a quick coffee while you were about it. You make your way to your car that’s parked in the shopping centre car park and load up your vehicle with your purchases. All thoughts of being involved in any type of accident that was not your fault and being put in a position where taking some form of North Kesteven claims action might be a possibility are very, very far from your mind indeed.

    You take your car park ticket over to the payment machine and pay what you owe. After making your way back to your car, you go to drive out of the car park. After putting your ticket into the barrier machine the ramp in front of you lowers into the ground, allowing you to drive out. Just as you’re driving over the ramp, it suddenly springs back up again, causing your car to rise up into the air. When your car comes back down, you are thrown forward, sustaining a rather nasty whiplash injury in the process. What rotten luck.

    Under these circumstances, there would be a chance that you might well be able to take some form of 100% no win no fee North Kesteven claims action against the car park operator to get the compensation you are entitled to.
