Merton is a borough in south-west London, deriving its name from a former parish of Merton which was where South Wimbledon is now. Parts of the borough have been inhabited at least since the Iron Age, as evidenced by the hill fort on Wimbledon Common.

Accidents in public places
Slips, trips and falls are the most common types of accident as they can happen virtually anywhere. Some people are more accident prone that others, but an accident may not be one’s fault. If, for example you trip over a piece of broken paving while out shopping and break your arm, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim, against the local authority which is responsible for keeping roads and pavements well-maintained.
If you slip in a supermarket because of a spillage on the floor which has not been cleaned up, and there were no warning signs, you may also be able to claim for injuries because the staff had been negligent in performing their duties.
Criteria for making an injury claim
In order to be able to make a personal injury compensation claim, you must be able to prove (with a solicitor’s help) that you were not responsible for the accident in which you were injured. You also need to prove that your accident, and so your injury, was the fault of another person. You should have received medical treatment as soon as you possible could after the accident as your medical report will be required.
