Have you been hurt in a public place in or around Sway? If so, then this guide will help you know more about your case and find an injury attorney in Sway who can help you out.
Getting hurt in public
If you’re hurt in public, it will be the responsibility of whoever owns or manages that area to ensure your safety. If it’s a shop, then it’s the business that owns the shop. Alternatively, if it’s in the street then it will be the responsibility of the local authority.
In either event, they should have taken out public liability insurance which covers you for any accidents which happen on their premises. As such, you are not claiming directly against them, but instead against the insurance company which provides the cover.
Deciding a claim
When looking at a claim, there are several things which will have to be satisfied. Firstly, it will have to have happened within the last three years. Generally we will also only be able to help you if you’ve required medical attention, and of course there’s the issue of blame.
Compensation will be appropriate if the property owner or local authority has failed to fulfil their provisions to reduce risks as much as possible. A loose paving slab or the absence of a ‘wet surface’ sign are all examples of things which could have been missed. This is one reason why the local station is always reminding people to watch out for rainy surfaces or anything else that might be hazardous.
Often, it will be only possible to really be certain about the validity of your claim if you have help from an expert third party. This is where we come in. We have a team of people available 24 hours a day ready to offer all the advice you could need.
We’ll look at your situation and tell you whether or not we think you have a good case to make. In general, we will only require a short conversation to reach this decision, but at times we will suggest a medical assessment which can help us evaluate the extent of any injuries.
