If the accident occurred in the UK, you will have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, although you should check with injury solicitors in Puddletown, or with us here at Accident Advice Helpline, as there are some accidents and injuries for which you must claim within just two years of the date of the accident.
Accidents in public places
Slips, trips and falls are the most common types of accident, as they can occur pretty much anywhere. If you fall in the street because you have tripped over a broken paving slab, or if you sprained your ankle walking across the road because of a pothole, then you may be entitled to make a claim against the local authority, as they are responsible for the maintenance of their streets. You should inform the police of your accident and take photographs of the scene to use as supporting evidence for your claim.
If you have an accident in a building, perhaps a supermarket, restaurant or cinema, then you should inform a member of staff and ensure that details of the accident and the names and contact details of any witnesses are recorded in the accident book, before you go to the nearest hospital for medical treatment.
