Hi everyone,

If a business has installed fold down parking bollards on their property, which is for employees and customers, would that business be liable to damage done to a customer's car under insurance law if the bollard rips a piece of the undercarriage clean off?

The car has not been modified in any way. An employee who witnessed the incident provided advice as to how one should enter the parking space to avoid such damage and there are no signs or warnings for drivers wishing to park there.

Thanks in advance
