If you have slipped and hurt yourself while filling up with petrol, you may need to find out more about how injury solicitors in Sarn Park could help you. Filling up with petrol is part of our daily lives, in fact it has become as routine as walking the dog. This means that when you go to put petrol in your car, it is not an event. However, if you have to be removed off the forecourt by an ambulance, it becomes one.
Even though filling up with petrol is a routine activity, petrol stations are high risk place really when you think about it as petrol is so flammable. It is also a slippery substance and can be dangerous if not quickly cleaned up. Therefore, petrol station owners are supposed to ensure that accidents are minimalized. This means that spillages are quickly removed and if this is not possible, warning signs need to be put in place. If that has not happened and you end up hurt, you may be able to claim compensation for your pain and suffering.
To claim compensation, the accident needs to have taken place within the past three years; although if a minor is injured, this deadline can sometimes be extended. Also, it has to be proven that someone else has acted either recklessly or negligently. For instance, if you slipped because you were wearing huge platform boots and tripped over your own feet as opposed to slipping on spilled petrol, you would probably not be able to make a claim.
