Many supermarket car parks can become very busy at certain times of the week. Saturday mornings are a good example. Often, it can be hard to find a parking space at times such as these. Not only that, but the fact that there are so many cars trying to manoeuvre about the place means that things can get a bit congested. All of this creates fertile circumstances for somebody to be injured in an accident that was not their fault.
If you were injured in a supermarket car park at a busy time, there will be a possibility that you might be able to make a claim for congestion. To find out how much you might be able to win in such circumstances, you may like to have a go at using our personal injury claim calculator in North Dorset.
Car park accidents and our personal injury claim calculator in North Dorset
Picture the scene; you’ve just done a big shop and are making your way back to your car with a trolley load of groceries. It’s very busy, meaning that you have to weave in and out of traffic to get to your vehicle. Once you’ve got to your car, you load your shopping into its boot and then deposit your trolley in the trolley parking area. On your way back to your car, a careless motorist somehow manages to run over your left foot.
The accident causes you extreme pain, and it later transpires that you broke several bones. Under these circumstances, you might well be able to make claim for compensation. You would need to take action against the car driver who ran over your foot. If you were to be successful, it would be most likely that the driver’s insurance would pay your compensation. The amount you might be able to win would be dependent on the severity of your injuries and how they might affect you on an ongoing basis.
