Places that are open to the public should be safe for members of the public to use. This seems pretty obvious, doesn’t it? Besides the common sense aspect of this, though, there is actually an obligation for the party responsible for a public place to ensure that it doesn’t present a risk of injury to those who use it.
Have you had a slip in a public place in Knowsley? You could be entitled to receive compensation.
Who is liable for your slip accident?
Who is liable for your accident will depend on where your slip occurred. If it happened on a pavement, for example, it could be the local authority at fault. If the slip took place in a shop, it will be whoever owns the shop who is liable.
If you’re eligible to claim compensation, you will be bringing proceedings against that party. If compensation is awarded, then the liable party’s insurer will cover the cost of your payout.
Who is entitled to compensation for a slip in a public place in Knowsley?
A slip incident claim is like any other kind of personal injury claim. There are certain criteria that must be fulfilled. Of course, the accident must be someone else’s fault, and this aspect of someone’s eligibility to claim has been covered above.
Besides this, there has to be an injury. That is, there must be medical proof that an injury has been suffered. It’s important that you seek medical advice as soon as possible after your slip incident.
There’s also a time limit for making claims. You have three years to do so from the date on which you suffered your injury. Because of this, it’s important that you don’t delay. Get in touch with us at Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible and speak to one of our advisors about making a claim.
