Tourist attractions are full of hazards though at the time you’re not really thinking about it. Depending on what you visit there could be cables across the floor, attractions not assembled properly and even careless drivers.
Being on guard isn’t really something you do when you are out for a day of fun but when an accident happens paying attention to everything suddenly becomes very important. Here, we tell you what you should know about being injured in a public place in Lincoln.
Injured in a public place in Lincoln?
As soon as an accident happens, if you are able to, take note of what is around you and of you can take photographs. If you don’t have a camera use a mobile phone to get snapshots of the hazard that caused your accident and anything around it.
If you have suffered any injuries try to get a shot at that as well so that the injury can be seen later on during the case. Wounds have an irreversible trait of healing so getting a shot when it happens could prove useful later on in your Lincoln accident claim.
Your Lincoln Accident Claim
After you have taken the photographs at the scene try to get contact details of any witnesses who come forward to help you. Don’t worry about collecting whole statements from them as your legal representative will be able to pick these up at a later date.
When you put through your claim with your chosen legal representative do not worry if you don’t know who the responsible party is. Your legal partner will be able to track that down for you. In many situations the other party could be the local council for that area or it could be the owner of the attraction where you had your accident.
Being involved in an accident in public can be quite humiliating but you will be surprised how many people will come and help you. By making a Lincoln accident claim you are not only taking care of yourself but you are also making it known that there is a hazard that should not be there.
