Kensington Gardens is one of the eight Royal Parks in London and is visited by millions of Londoners, as well as domestic, and foreign tourists every year. It spreads across some two hundred and forty two acres and within these there are the Peter Pan statues, as well as Kensington Palace, the Albert Memorial, the Italian Gardens and the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground. If you had an accident while visiting the Gardens and you can prove that it was not your fault, but the fault of another person’s negligence, you may be able to make an injury claim in Kensington Gardens.
Make an injury claim in Kensington Gardens
If you have had an accident in the last three years, you may be able to make an injury claim in Kensington Gardens or elsewhere. You need to be able to prove, along with your personal injury solicitor, or an accident solicitor, that it was no fault of yours.

Accidents in public places
A public place can be defined as anywhere which is open to the public. This could be Kensington Gardens, a supermarket, bank, cinema, the street and so on. One woman fell on pigeon droppings while walking under a railway bridge in Battersea, and fractured her arm. She received £20,000 in compensation for her injuries. She fell in 2003, so the amount of compensation you might receive for such an injury has increased since then.
If you fall in the street, you can make an injury claim in Kensington Gardens or elsewhere against the local authority which is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of pavements and roads.
You need to inform the police of your accident if it is in the street and they will make a report which you can use as evidence in support of your claim. You should also take photographs of the scene of your accident. You can use a ruler to show height and depth of a piece of paving you fell over, or of a pothole, for example.
If your accident is on the premises of a building or park, then you should inform a member of staff and have them write the details of your accident in the accident book. These should include names and contact details of any witnesses.
