Man awarded compensation after suffering whiplash

A man who was picking up supplies for work has successfully pursued compensation after he was injured in the car park close to the shop.

As the claimant drove his car into the car park of the electrical supplies store, the ground gave way underneath his car causing the passenger wheel to drop into a hole. After getting out of the car, the claimant identified that a plastic sheet had been placed over the hole. There were no warning signs in place alerting customers to the hazard and the area was not cordoned off to prevent cars from entering the area.

In pain, the claimant was admitted to his local A&E unit and then referred to his GP with minor whiplash. As a result of the accident, he was forced to take a week off work and it took a further 3-4 weeks for him to fully recover from his injuries.

Following the accident, he contacted our specialist personal injury solicitors who investigated a compensation claim on his behalf. The owner of the car park admitted liability and compensation was secured for our client.
