    Accident in a public place


    Being injured in an accident in a public place is actually more likely than you might realise. When you consider all the public places many of us visit on a daily basis, from the high street to leisure centres, the council offices and shopping centres, it’s easy to see how an accident could easily happen. If you’ve been the victim of somebody else’s negligence and you’re wondering if you could claim compensation, you could get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you’re eligible for personal injury compensation. It doesn’t matter how minor or serious your injuries; you could be entitled to claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.

    How have you been injured?

    Slips, trips and falls are the most common types of accidents to happen in public. For example, you could trip on damaged flooring in a shopping centre, slip on a wet floor at the leisure centre or trip on a broken kerb on the high street. Even if you’ve been injured in another type of accident in a public place, you could still claim compensation for your injuries. You may have broken your ankle, suffered a head injury or even been struck down by food poisoning after dining out at a food court or restaurant.

    There’s a three-year time limit in place to make a personal injury claim, so make sure you don’t wait around too long to get in touch with us to find out if you have a viable claim. Many people don’t realise they’re able to claim even for minor injuries such as a back injury or a sprained ankle.
