    Only if you have proof (Witnesses/CCTV etc) or the third party admitting to the damage.

    Being a hospital car park there should be CCTV covering the grounds, get to the reception and ask for access to the CCTV footage and get the car in question and inform the Police.

    There will be the usual signs saying parked at your own risk, ask them for CCTV and see if you can get a reg number.

    I do medical devices for the NHS & patient data is one thing however a car registration is complete different. The problem you have is even if you know the registration you won't get a name or address, that would be down to the police.

    My car was damaged at work (I work at hospital) in staff car park covered by CCTV. Spoke to security who said they would check tapes and advised me to report to police as if they found anything would not tell me but could tell police. Nothing found on tapes (if they checked) so never got any further. Had to attend local police station and produce all my documents to report it!

    There's definitely a whole bunch of inconsiderate idiots out there. We had to fork out for damage at the rear of our Avant recently from the local CO-OP car park. No CCTV. Person probably didn't even realise our car was part of their turning circle :-(

    Due to Hospital car parks being so full, the problem is people will try and park in gaps they wouldn't normally do. Unfortunately it will be very hard to do anything about it. I know how you feel. Car used to be "ding" free.

    The data protection act covers people viewed on the footage to be able to get access to it as well under the freedom of information act and that includes hospitals. You'd have to go straight to the top to request though and it might be easier with a solicitor on your side

    CCTV in your community and how to request footage : Directgov - Home and community

    Data protection and identity theft : Directgov - Government, citizens and rights

    Freedom of information : Directgov - Government, citizens and rights

    Dont be fobbed off with only the police can access it. Any CCTV footage with your image on it can be requested but only the footage with you in it. All regs and other people would be edited out. I dont think this covers your car either as its an object thats why the police must be involved. In this case they would have to because you weren't in the footage when it happened. They can't give out car regs except to the police etc, etc.

    Even if there is footage then you might find it hard to prosecute the other driver. Parking mishaps might not be too noticeable due to low speed and even then they'd just say any damage was already there. Grainy CCTV footage wont help either.

    Good luck. I hope you get justice.
