One of the least likely place you might expect to get injured in a road accident in Southend-on-Sea is in a multi-storey car park, if for no other reason than that vehicles typically make their way round these places so slowly that any mishap that did occur would be most unlikely to cause any serious damage.
Well, if you are so minded, you may need to think again. Although unusual, it is more than possible to sustain an injury in a road accident in Southend-on-Sea that was not your fault while trying to park your car in a multi-story car park.
If you were ever to suffer this type of misfortune, there will be a possibility that you might be able to take some form of personal injury legal action against the company that runs the car park concerned, with the aid of a top-flight no win no fee* personal injury solicitor at Accident Advice Helpline. This might be possible if you could prove that the injury you sustained came about as a result of the negligent, irresponsible or reckless behaviour of the firm.
Car parks and a road accident in Southend-on-Sea
Imagine that you’d gone into your local town centre to indulge in a spot of shopping. You elect to park your car in the multi-story attached to the shopping centre you’re planning to visit. You manage to make it to the mall without having the misfortune of becoming embroiled in a road accident in Southend-on-Sea that was not your fault and make your way to the barrier where you take a ticket before entering.
After you take your ticket, the barrier rises and you accelerate forward. Suddenly, the barrier falls at a rate of knots, smashing through your front windscreen and giving you a very nasty facial injury.
It transpires that the barrier was faulty and closed far too soon, causing you to be injured. In these circumstances, as the company that owned the car park would have been responsible for making sure that members of the public would not be exposed to the risk of becoming involved in an accident that was not their fault while parking their cars, you may well, with the assistance of a decent 100% no win no fee* personal injury lawyer, be in a position to seek monetary recompense for the suffering you had to endure as a consequence of your injuries.
If you have been injured in a multi-story car park, or any other type of road accident in Southend-on-Sea for that matter, it would be very wise move indeed to get in touch with the Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.
