Accidents in public
When you go out somewhere and purchase a service, perhaps a manicure or a massage, the last thing you expect is to be injured. When you go into a professional establishment you work on the, not unfair, basis that the environment is going to be safe, the equipment used is going to be well maintained and regularly checked, and that all the staff you come into contact with are going to be well trained.
However, sometimes this is not the case and as a result of such situations people can be injured. If you have had an accident in such a situation and you think that your injuries were caused as a result of a failing on the part of the staff or the management in some way, then our Exeter accident claim solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline can help you recover the compensation that you could be entitled to.
The truth is that when it comes down to going to such establishments, whether it be a restaurant or a shop, the owners have a duty of care to the people working for them and anyone that may have access or cause to be on their premises. This obviously then extends to customers and visitors who may be popping in for a browse.
This duty of care is a legal obligation which means that they are to do all they possibly and reasonably can, to ensure that the environment is safe and no one is likely to be injured. Of course accidents do occur, people can be – by their very nature – quite clumsy, but sometimes they can be avoided. If you think the accident which caused your injuries could have been avoided, but wasn’t because of the actions of someone else, then our Exeter accident claim solicitors may be able to help you.
Our Exeter accident claim solicitors
All the solicitors at the Accident Advice Helpline are fully trained and have a wealth of experience when it comes to making claims for compensation on behalf of their clients. Some of them specialise in particular areas, for example, clinical and medical negligence or industrial diseases. So, no matter what type of accident you have had or the type of injury you have sustained, we are confident that we will be able to find someone on our team to help you get the outcome that you deserve.
And what exactly can you hope to receive in terms of compensation?
That ultimately depends on the situation relating to your specific claim. If your injuries are particularly severe then you are likely to receive more in terms of financial compensation than someone whose injuries were not quite so bad.
