If you have had an accident in a public place then you may be legally entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Whether or not you are entitled to make a claim for compensation depends largely on the circumstances surrounding your accident. Personal injury claims in Gosport can be made if the accident in question was not your fault, occurred within the last three years and resulted in you receiving some form of personal injury.

Personal injury claims in Gosport involving public places
Over the years our team have handled a large number of personal injury claims in Gosport which have occurred in public places. Such public places have included shops and supermarkets, hotels, bars, restaurants, gyms, leisure centres and external areas such as parks and pavements.
No matter where an accident has occurred, either internally or externally someone will ultimately be responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the area. It is this person who is likely to be regarded as being liable if an accident occurs on the premises that could have, and indeed should have, been prevented.
Personal injury claims in Gosport can often be prevented if the correct steps are taken to ensure that an area is properly maintained.
For example, we have helped clients who have been injured after tripping over uneven paving slabs on a pavement. Generally speaking the council is usually responsible for the upkeep of such areas, and should be aware of any maintenance work that is needed to ensure that the pavements and walkways are safe and fit for public use. Failure to do so can cause an accident, and if such an accident results in a member of the public being injured, then a personal claim may ensue.
Personal injury claims in Gosport can also occur as a result of insufficient training when it comes to employees. For example, employees may get injured in a supermarket after they slip on water that has leaked from a refrigerator.
