I’ve been hurt in public – how do I know if I can make a claim?
It is unfortunately common for accidents to occur in public places — predominantly slips, trips, and falls. These kinds of accidents can take place anywhere, from the bank to the local supermarket, as well as outdoors in car parks, or on stairways. If you’ve suffered an injury during such an accident, you can make a claim if you can prove that the negligence of another party caused it to happen.
For example, if you have slipped on an icy walkway, you can potentially claim compensation if the company responsible for keeping it salted and safe for use has neglected to do so.
How much can I claim?
The amount you can claim will depend on a number of factors, such as the impact the injury has had on you financially, how much you have had to pay in medical bills, and the extent and severity of your injuries. Find out how much you could be owed quickly and easily with our 30-second claims calculator, or call our helpline to discuss your case with an expert claims adviser.
If you’ve suffered serious injuries, such as those affecting the head, neck, or spine, you could potentially receive thousands of pounds. If there is plenty of evidence to support that negligence was the cause of your accident, it is common for the defendant to want to settle away from court, which can reduce the time it takes to receive your compensation substantially.
