A west district of London, Hammersmith is perhaps most famously noted for the Hammersmith Apollo venue and The Dove riverside pub which is the home of the smallest bar in the world, favourite of writers Ernest Hemingway and Graham Greene.
No matter how distinct and delightful an area may be, there is still a risk of experiencing a public accident. Whether it be slips, trips and falls or something a little more severe, staying vigilant while you are out and about is essential to ensure your safety.
Slips, trips, falls and more in Hammersmith
It doesn’t particularly matter what type of accident you have incurred in Hammersmith. If you believe you have suffered harm due to a factor that you had no control over, then it could be worth seeking legal advice.
While you are visiting the area, the local council has a legal obligation to ensure your health and safety during your time in Hammersmith. This means they have a duty to minimise risk of accidents in public by maintaining the district, its roads, pathways and facilities.
It is sometimes difficult to determine whether your public accident is likely to be eligible for personal injury compensation.
Generally speaking, there are a few factors that play a part in the eligibility of your case:
- The accident in question must have happened within the last three years.
- You must be able to prove that you are not liable for the accident that caused your injury.
- It must be possible to identify the harm you suffered due to the public accident and define how it affected your day to day life.
If you are able to meet this criteria, a law firm, such as Accident Advice Helpline, could help you further in processing your claim.
