How to file personal injury compensation claims in Southampton
Do you live or work in Southampton? Have you had an accident and been injured? If you have, then you might be able to make a claim for your injuries. In order to file personal injury compensation claims in Southampton, you need to be able to prove two things.
- You were not responsible for the accident in which you were injured.
- Another person was to blame for the accident.
If you can prove these things with the help of our experts at Accident Advice Helpline, you may well have a claim to file.
Accidents in public places
If your accident occurred in the street, in a shop, supermarket, restaurant, library and so on, then you would need to be able to prove that your accident was the result of someone else’s negligence. It may have been the result of someone else’s recklessness too.
If you tripped and fell in the street, perhaps because of an uneven pavement, you may be able to make a claim against the local authority as this is responsible for maintaining roads and pavements.
If you slipped and fell in a shop or supermarket because some liquid had been spilled on the floor, you may be able to make a claim for injuries. You would have to prove that your fall was due to the negligence of staff. They should clean up spillages and if the floor is wet, erect warning signs. If these were not in place, or the food or liquid had not been cleaned up, then you could possibly make a claim against the owners.
