Car park accidents explained
We define a car park accident as any kind of accident that happens in a car park. Whether it is two cars bumping into each other, a pedestrian being hit or whether you slipped on a wet floor due to poor maintenance of the car park. If someone else’s negligence resulted in your injury, you should talk to a personal injury claims solicitor.
Most common causes and types of car park accidents
There are all kinds of scenarios that can cause a car park accident. Here are the most common causes:
- From careless driving: where other road users are inattentive or fail to see you, then back up or make turns without warning.
