When a Museum offers more than education
Going to the museum is often a thrilling day out, no matter how old you are. With lots of different things to see and do, along with hands on activities and usually a café full of wonderfully tempting treats even the fussiest of individuals is unlikely to return home with a frown on their face.
That is unless of course they have been involved in an accident on their day out.
Unfortunately, like many public places, museums are a treasure trove of accidents waiting to happen. From poorly stored exhibits, to slippery floors there are a vast number of different ways that you can cause yourself an injury.
If of course your injury was caused as a result of the actions of another person then you may be entitled to make a legal Fareham no win no fee claim for compensation. If you would like to find out more about your eligible to claim, then please get in touch with the Accident Advice Helpline and we will offer you free, no obligation advice.
Slips, trips and falls
Some of the most common causes for Fareham no win no fee claims to be made in museum situations is as a result of the classic slip, trip or fall accident.
Beverages spilt in the café that have not been properly cleaned up, or rain water trodden in by patrons are one of the most common reasons for slippages. Fluid and tiled or marbled flooring do not make for good companions, and what may seem like an innocuous slip can cause serious injuries. Even if you do not fall to the ground, you could seriously twist a knee, or even end up with groin strain as a result of a slip.
It would be the role of your solicitor at Accident Advice Helpline to find out whether or not you could be entitled to make a Fareham no win no fee claim. This would involve establishing what had caused the floor to be slippy, and what could have been done to prevent the accident from occurring. For example, if the spillage had been cleaned up promptly, or if matting had been placed on the floor would the accident still have occurred?
Trips also occur as a result of hazards left lying around a museum. This could be anything from a cordon that has been left propped against a wall, to a broken piece of flooring. If the accident in question was not your fault then you will be able to make a Fareham no win no fee claim and Accident Advice Helpline will do all they can to support you in this.
