If you have suffered injury as a result of a slip or trip in a public place, we can help you claim compensation. In such cases, it may appear that no one is at fault, but in fact, often the council or person responsible for the property may be liable because of a failure to take steps to prevent an accident occurring. We understand that not only will you need to be compensated for your injuries, but also for expenses incurred for other expenses such as medical treatment, rehabilitation, or losses incurred through sick leave from work, or home care or assistance. We can even claim for future losses (of income etc.) where appropriate. Speak to our solicitors at the soonest opportunity to discuss your claim - there are time limits in place for personal injury claims, so don't delay.
Road, pavements, flooring and stairs must be kept in good working order so that they are suitable for use without causing injury. If they have fallen into disrepair and cause an injury as a result, those responsible for the property may be held liable. You will need to show evidence to demonstrate there was a failure to take ‘reasonable steps’ to keep the area in a suitable condition.
Our solicitors can advise you of any evidence that may support your claim, such as photographic evidence, or witness statements as well as evidence of any extra expense incurred as a result of the accident such as receipts for treatment received, home care or transport needs. It is not possible to claim compensation in all cases of an accident occurring in public, however if certain criteria can be met, a claim will be possible. The vast amount of claims such as these are settled out of court, so you will not even have to go through the litigation process to claim compensation. Get in touch with our team today to find out if you may have a claim. We can help you every step of the way, and take you smoothly through the entire process.
