    Injury claim in Lewes


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Lewes

    The injury claim in Lewes team of Accident Advice Helpline deal with compensation claims that arise in the town itself and the surrounding area. Like many areas in east Sussex, there are several public parks where people can enjoy fresh air and exercise. If you suffer an accident that was not your fault in a public park, you can ask the injury claim in Lewes team to help you – it’s so easy to do and takes just one phone call to Accident Advice Helpline. Here are some examples of accidents that can happen in public parks.

    Falls in the park

    The footpaths in a public space should be safe to walk on. Steps and slope in particular should be of sound construction and maintained properly. If you have fallen and can show that you fell because the surface on which you were walking was defective in some way, then you may be able to claim compensation.

    It will help your case greatly if you can collect some evidence at the scene to show the defect. A photograph can be especially useful. Start off your claim by calling Accident Advice Helpline. We have lawyers who are familiar with claims from the Lewes area and across the UK. That includes claims for falls in public areas.

    Children’s play equipment accidents

    Children’s play equipment should be fun, robust and fit for purpose. It should also be checked regularly to make sure that it is safe to use and is not worn or broken in any way. If your child has been injured using play equipment in a public park, you can consult the injury claim in Lewes team about how to make a claim. So, for example, if your child has fallen awkwardly from some monkey bars because they snapped off as they were using them, then you may be able to claim for his injuries.

    Worker’s accidents

    Members of the public are not the only ones who can get hurt in public parks; employees such as groundsmen, gardeners, park wardens and event organisers have also been injured. These accidents often involve dangerous machinery such as chainsaws and vehicles. Personal injury lawyers will collect information from the injured worker about the training that they received to use the machinery. The maintenance and regular checking of the machinery – if any – is also relevant. The worker will need to detail the protective equipment that they were provided with and how effective it actually was in practice.
