    Can I claim for an accident in a library?


    It may sound very strange, but we often are asked questions like ‘Can I claim for an accident in a library?’ You may be thinking that libraries are quiet places where nothing happens, but this is far from the truth.

    The fact is that libraries have just as many hazards as any other place. You are in a large room where there are shelves – often on high levels – that are filled with heavy books. It is not implausible that one wrong move could bring the whole lot down on top of you. Cuts, bruises, broken bones, or even worse could befall you while you are in a library. So, what do you do if you suffer an accident in a library?

    Compensation for injuries

    Compensation for injuries is payable if you have been injured because somebody else did not do their job properly. In a public place such as a library, there are members of the public wandering in and out all of the time and health and safety are paramount. However, it is very easy to overlook small details and this means that from time to time someone will end up getting hurt.

    Time off work and additional expenses can all be covered when you make a claim for compensation. Our team will tell you what expenses you can claim when you begin your claim and will also explain to you what evidence will need to be presented. Our personal injury solicitors will be working on your behalf and will make any required phone calls and send any necessary letters to the other party.

    So getting justice and compensation can be quite a simple process – why not call us today and find out if we are able to help you? Accident Advice Helpline is on hand to assist you in putting your life back together.
