If you have had an accident which was no fault of yours in the area, you may be thinking about making a compensation claim in Blakedown. Alternatively, you may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness and be considering making a compensation claim in Blakedown. You can file a claim for most types of injuries within three years of the date of your accident. In the case of a work-related illness, you have three years to file an injury claim from the date on which you were first diagnosed with the illness.
Slips, trips and falls in a public place
You may have had a slip, trip or fall and think you may have a personal injury compensation claim to make, as perhaps you broke your arm or leg. You may be wondering who is responsible for your injury and are unsure how to find out. It could be that you fell over a manhole cover, in which case the utilities company would be responsible. You may have tripped over a piece of broken paving stone, in which case the local authority would be to blame. If you are in doubt, you should consult an expert accident or personal injury solicitor, who will be able to advise you.
If you slip, trip or fall in a shop and are injured, for example, you should inform a member of staff and have them log the accident in their accident book. You should then seek medical attention, as failure to do so could ultimately weaken your compensation claim in Blakedown (or one made elsewhere in the UK). You can take photographs of the accident scene (use a mobile phone), as these can be used as supporting evidence.
