If you live in Garnethill you may be considering filing a personal injury compensation claim and looking for injury lawyers in Garnethill.

Injury lawyers in Garnethill
If either of the above scenarios match your circumstances, you may have a claim to make. You usually have three years in which to make a claim, but for some types of accidents, you only have two. Check with injury lawyers to find out how long you actually have in which to make your specific claim. You can always contact us at Accident Advice Helpline, of course, if you have this, or any other query about any personal injury compensation claim.
Accidents in public places
There are many different types of accidents and each happens in unique circumstances. However, the most common accidents are slips, trips and falls as they can happen anywhere. If, for example you slip on spilled liquid or food in a supermarket and sprain an ankle or break an arm, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim if there had not been any hazard signs in place warning you of the danger.
If such an accident happens to you, then you should inform a member of staff and they should record the accident in the accident book, writing the date and time of the accident, the circumstances in which it occurred and the names and contact details of any witnesses. If you can take photos of the scene, your firm of injury lawyers in Garnethill (or ones based anywhere else in the UK), can use these as supporting evidence for your claim.
Public places include (but are not limited to) museums, cinemas, restaurants, banks and the street. If you have an accident in these places you could make an injury claim against the owner of the premises, or against the local authority or town council if you had an accident in the street.
