Accidents in public places
If you have an accident in the street, perhaps because you tripped over a piece of broken paving or fell because you accidentally put your foot in a pothole as you were crossing the road, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation from the local authority. They are responsible for the maintenance of roads and pavements which should be in a good state of repair.
If you slip because of liquid spilled on the floor of a supermarket, restaurant or other public place, then you may have grounds to lodge a personal injury compensation claim against the owner of the establishment.
It is always a good idea to take photographs of the scene of your accident and your injuries and as most people can do this with their mobile phones easily, don’t forget to do so. Photographs will add support to any accident claim you may have.
If you have an accident in a cinema, restaurant and so on, you should report it to the management or a member of staff and make sure that the details are logged in the accident book on the premises. You should also have names and contact details of any witnesses to the accident logged.
