The three most common types of accident causing personal injury are workplace accidents, road traffic accidents and slips, trips and falls. Of course to some extent these all occur in public places, but we’ll be focusing in particular on slips, trips and falls and advice that relates here. No one sets out in the morning aiming to have an accident, but sometimes it’s unavoidable, particularly when you’re out in a public place such as a supermarket, or just walking along council owned footpaths. If you’re the victim of an accident in these circumstances, you might not know what to do in order to make a claim. Well, we at Accident Advice Helpline are here to help you and provide personal injury advice in Deganwy.
Public accidents personal injury advice in Deganwy
Regardless of where you experience your accident, it’s never a nice thing to happen, especially if you’re seriously injured. If you’re wondering what you have to do in order to make a claim for compensation, there are just a few simple things to double check. These things are:
- Make sure the accident was not your fault. If you’ve had an accident when out and about and tripped on some loose pavement, the chances are the fault here lies with your local council, as an example.
- Did your accident happen within the last three years? As, in this case, you re claiming for a slip, trip or fall, the deadline is three years.
- Did you visit a doctor, or other relevant medical professional around the time of your accident in relation to your injuries? Generally, we help people make claims for compensation when they had to seek medical assistance for their injuries.
