Accidents in Public Car Parks

Considering making a claim after an accident in a public car park

Injuries in car parks can fall into two categories. If you were injured by a driver while walking through a car park, your claim will be treated as a road traffic accident. If however, you suffer a slip, trip or fall in a public car park, this will be treated as a claim against the owners of the car park, whether it is owned privately or by a local authority.

The owners of the car park have an obligation to keep it well maintained, making sure there are no tripping hazards or anything else that could cause injury to the public. This should mean no uneven paving stones or drain covers, any steps clearly marked and other dangers such as low ceilings visibly flagged.

If this is not the case, and you suffer an injury as a result, you may be eligible to claim compensation. Here at First Personal Injury we advise you and handle your claim with full integrity and professionalism on a no win no fee basis.

Common accidents in public car parks

These types of injury may not sound very serious but they can have major consequences. For instance, loss of earnings because of time spent off work, the need for medical treatment and rehabilitative therapies plus potential changes to your home and lifestyle.
