If you have been injured in an accident in a public place in Okehampton, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries and financial losses. There are statutory time limits involved in making claims for personal injuries, so if you wish to make a claim, you must speak with an accident lawyer as soon as possible.
Who will be on the receiving end of my claim?
The owners and occupiers of premises in Okehampton have a legal duty to ensure that you remain safe from harm. This duty of care covers the owners and occupiers of a wide range of premises, including schools, supermarkets, shops, sports facilities, pubs, restaurants, hotels and privately owned homes. It also applies to the owners of public footpaths and parks.
Do I need to provide evidence?
To pursue a public liability claim through an accident lawyer you will require evidence to support your allegations. It is therefore, a wise idea to take photographs of the cause of your accident as soon as possible after the event. You should also try to obtain the contact details of any witnesses and keep a copy of your accident book entry. If you have incurred financial losses as a result of your accident, you should obtain your receipts, invoices and payslips. In doing so, you will be able to prove the value of your accident claim.
