Have you had an accident and suffered injury in a public place in the UK?
Local authorities (Councils) and business owners have a duty to ensure that their environments and premises are safe for public. Unfortunately though, some organisations do not always adhere to the regulations and laws put in place to keep us safe here in the UK.
Our experienced and multi-cultural personal injury lawyers can claim for compensation on your behalf if you have had an accident and were injured whilst in a:
- Public house; or
- any other premises you were visiting.
Our skilled lawyers will work closely with you so that we can advise you on the best course of legal action tailored to the individual circumstances of your accident.
What type of accidents in public places can you claim compensation for?
The most common types of accidents in public places are slips, trips and falls. These often occur as a result of uneven pavements or roads, stepping or driving into a pot hole in a road or slipping on wet floors in supermarkets, shops, cafes, restaurants or public houses.
Other accident circumstances in public places can occur from (but are not limited to):
- falling from/down staircases; or
- falling objects (items falling from scaffolding for example); or
- use of defective equipment such as broken doors or playground apparatus
What to do if you have had an accident in a public place
- Make a note of where the accident happened
- Gather evidence at the scene of the accident – measure any defect (i.e holes in the road or height of loose pavements) and take clear photographs
- Report the incident and ensure it is properly recorded in an accident book
- Make a note of any witnesses (name, contact number and correspondence address)
- Go to your GP and/or hospital
- Make a diary entry of all your symptoms
- Keep a record of your expenses and other financial losses
- Contact a Solicitor
