Have you been injured whilst in a car park?
When people are injured in car accidents, they are normally hurt whilst on the road. When vehicles are travelling at relatively high speeds, people may assume that they are more likely to be involved in collisions. Whist this may be true, accidents can happen in all sorts of places and people can sustain injuries in areas such as private roads and car parks.
Although vehicles should be travelling at a slow speed in a car park, drivers don’t always adhere to this rule. If people speed through car parks, it won’t take long for someone to get hurt. Even when drivers are travelling slowly, they may not see pedestrians or other drivers and an accident could occur as a result.
If you’ve been hurt whilst in a car park, you could still be able to make a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Thurrock. As long as you weren’t responsible for the incident, you should be able to obtain compensation for your injuries.
What type of medical treatment did you receive?
Whenever you’re affected by an accident, you should always seek medical help. As some injuries aren’t apparent straightaway, you should consult a medical professional, rather than simply assuming that you haven’t been badly hurt.
In addition to taking care of your own health, you will need to have received some type of medical assistance in order to be able to make a claim for compensation.
Although people with more serious injuries are often treated in hospital after a road traffic accident, you don’t have to have been treated as an in-patient in order to be able to make a claim. If you were seen as an out-patient, or even if you were treated by your local doctor via a normal appointment, you could still go on to make your claim.
