Injury solicitors in the city
As well as being able to take personal injury action against private organisations or companies, you might also be able to use a good injury solicitor in the city to sue for compensation if you were injured as the result of an accident that was not your fault that was caused by a public body.
It doesn’t matter if you were injured in your local Jobcentre Plus, while visiting your local authority’s offices, while visiting a hospital’s grounds, or any other publicly owned property; if you were hurt as a result of the irresponsible or negligent behaviour of a public organisation or one of its members of staff, you could be in line for a pay-out.
You may even be able to take action against your local authority if you were to trip on an uneven paving stone or pothole in the road. In most council areas, local authorities are directly responsible for the upkeep of highways and pavements.
Public organisations and injury solicitors in the city
Many public organisations take out liability insurance to make sure they’re covered if members of the public they come into contact with are injured in an accident that was not their fault and attempt to use a good injury solicitor in the city to sue for compensation. This is especially true of front line services that deal with large numbers of people. If you were to find yourself out of work and forced to sign on for unemployment benefit at your local Jobcentre Plus, only to be hit on the head by a ceiling tile falling from above while you were waiting to speak to your advisor, you might be able to take action.
If you were visiting a friend in hospital only to slip on a spillage that had not been cleared up on the floor, you may be able to retain the services of a good injury solicitor in the city and sue for compensation. At the end of the day, if you’ve been injured by the actions of a public organisation or its staff, you may be able to launch a personal injury case and win many thousands of pounds in compensation.
