What to do if someone hits or damages your parked car
Crowded car parks, tight car parking spaces and ever growing vehicles are leading to more and more car park accidents, to the extent that parking prangs are now costing us more than £1. 4 billion per year, according to Yahoo Finance UK! RAC Insurance research has found that a whopping two-thirds of British motorists have returned to their vehicle to find that their car was damaged in a car park, with an average bill of £2,050!
Supermarket car parks are the number-one place for British motorists to pick up damage to their car, with 48% of people who picked up a parking prang saying that this is where their car got scratched or dented.
