Man awarded compensation after suffering whiplash

A man has been successful in his claim for compensation from a whiplash injury. The man was collecting supplies for work and his car dropped into a large hole in the establishment’s carpark.

There had been some ground displacement on the carpark and the electrical store had covered the area with some plastic sheeting. The claimant did not see the cover or realise there was a hazard as there were no signs and his car wheel dropped in to the hole causing the driver to jolt forward and backwards.

After a visit to his local A&E unit he was diagnosed with minor whiplash and was forced to take a week off work.

He pursued compensation as a result of his whiplash injuries and was successful due to the fact that the dangerous site had not been cordoned off to prevent cars from entering the area.

The owner of the car park admitted liability.
