    Compensation Claim in Stanton by Dale

    Accidents in Public Places

    When you enter a public place, it’s natural to assume that you will be safe there. After all, just as you take care of the safety of anyone who enters your home, you know that it is the responsibility of anyone who owns or manages a public place such as a hospital, shopping centre, supermarket, nightclub or public house or simply a street or public footpath to have the same duty of care.

    Sadly, accidents in public places do occur and if you’ve been injured in a public place because of the carelessness or negligence of the person or body responsible for maintaining your health and safety as you were in that public place then you have the right to make a compensation claim in Stanton by Dale.

    Accident Advice Helpline have over 14 years’ experience, a bank of solicitors at your disposal and a helpline which is manned 24/7 to help you as you seek a compensation claim Stanton by Dale. You can assess for yourself whether you have the right to make a claim for the injuries you sustained by doing a 30 second test or simply by way of a no obligation phone call.

    Compensation Claim in Stanton by Dale for a Broken Duty of Care

    Accidents in public places can cover a wide range of injuries:

    • Broken bones as a result of slips, trips or falls,
    • Neck or spinal injuries due to objects falling onto you as you walk or pass through
    • Cuts or lacerations as a result of sharp edges or objects which weren’t properly covered
    • Burns and scalds due to hot surfaces or liquids

    As has already been mentioned, the owner or manager of any public place has a duty of care to ensure the health and safety of any person entering that public area. When this duty of care is breached then the injured person has the right to make a compensation claim in Stanton by Dale.

    Public Roads and Footpaths

    Finding the person responsible for your accident or injury in a shop or supermarket is often a lot easier than finding the responsible person in an open public area. Because roads, paths and highways are managed and maintained by the government or an element of it, finding the person or body responsible for an injury which has befallen you can be difficult and many people feel that they don’t wish to pursue a compensation claim Stanton by Dale because they don’t like the idea of suing the government or council.

    However, as a UK citizen, you pay taxes and just as the money you might spend in a shop would not only pay for the wages of staff but also for the upkeep and maintenance of the shopping area, it is your money which helps to maintain these public footpaths and roads.

    It makes sense therefore that if the task of maintaining these public areas is not done to a high enough standard as to remove hazards then the injured party has the right to a compensation claim in Stanton by Dale.
