You may be seeking a firm of injury lawyers in Forest Hill if you live and work there because you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence, or because you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault.
Injury lawyers in Forest Hill
When you look for a firm of injury lawyers in Forest Hill or elsewhere in the British Isles, you need to find one who has an expert in the type of personal injury compensation claim you want to make. For example, if you had a clinical negligence claim to file, you wouldn’t go to a solicitor who specialised in accidents in public places, would you?
Accidents in public places
Examples of public places are museums, aquariums, banks, supermarkets and the street. The owners of premises have public liability insurance cover which covers them for any personal injury compensation claim made against them. If you have a slip, trip or fall in the street, depending in the circumstances, you could file a compensation claim against the local authority or a utilities company, if for example you fell over a manhole cover or into a manhole.
Slips, trips and falls are the most frequent type of accident, as they can happen anywhere. If spillages of liquids or food are not cleaned up and there are no warning signs in place, you might slip and break a limb. If you have an accident in a shop or any other building which is open to the public, you should inform a member of staff and they should record the details of your accident in the accident book. These details should include the date and time of the accident and how it was caused. You should also ask for the names and contact details of witnesses to be logged.
You should seek immediate medical treatment after being injured in any accident.
