If you have had a slip in a public place in Sedgemoor and believe that another person was at fault, say the staff or management of a shop or restaurant, you may be able to make a claim for compensation for your injuries and any expenses that have resulted from your accident.
You will only be able to make a claim for compensation if you can prove that your accident happened, and that it wasn’t your fault, so gathering evidence is crucial to the compensation process. Here is some of the evidence that you may be able to get together for a compensation claim for a slip in a public place.
One of the positives about having your accident in a public place is that there are usually lots of people around to witness this accident, and they may come in very useful as witnesses in your claim.
All you need to do is ask the people who are around you if they will be willing to give a statement before you leave the area, and take down their personal contact details so that they can be contacted later on.
An accident report
In shops and other places of business, there will usually be a standard procedure for dealing with accidents, and this will usually involve an accident report form.
Ask the management if you can be involved in filling out the accident report form, so that you can be sure that all of the facts are right, and then ask to take a copy home with you then and there. Do not allow management to fob you off and promise to send on a copy later.
