Did you have an accident in a shop?
If you slipped and fell in a shop, you might be able to make an accident injury claim in Torfaen if you can prove that negligence on the part of the owner or staff caused your accident. For example, if your leg got caught in an escalator which had not been regularly serviced, you would be able to make a claim for injuries from the owners of the shop.
If you slipped and fractured your arm because there was liquid on the floor which had not been cleaned up, you could also make a claim for your injuries.
