Areas of Law / Personal Injury

My wife was knocked down by a car in the car park adjoining a supermarket. The doors to the store open straight out on to the car park and there’s no pavement or walkway. I wondered whether my wife had a case against the supermarket for not providing safe access to the store?

If a number of people have had accidents in the car park, and the owners were aware of this, then they should probably have reviewed its layout and perhaps come up with a scheme to improve matters. On this basis it’s possible that your wife could bring a case against the owners. However, depending on the circumstances of the accident, your wife may have a better claim against the driver of the vehicle that knocked her down. She should see a solicitor specialising in personal injury cases without delay.
