If you have been involved in a slip in a public place, you may be wondering whether you are able to make a claim. This can be a process that is confusing and overwhelming for a lot of people, especially those that have no experience with compensation claims. But don’t worry, as we have put together this handy guide, which will provide you with all of the basic information you need to know.
Have you been the victim of a slip in a public place in Wandsworth?
The first thing you need to do is determine who is at fault for the slip you have been involved in. Establishing liability is the most vital aspect of any claim. You need to show that you did not cause the incident. If you slipped because of your own clumsiness, for instance, you will most likely not be able to claim. However, if you slipped because there was a spillage on the floor and it had not been marked, there is a very high chance that you will be entitled to compensation.
So, who is to blame? Well, this all depends on where the incident occurred. If you were in a supermarket or any type of shop, then it will be the responsibility of the business. However, if you slipped on a public pavement, then it is likely to be the responsibility of the local council. If you are not sure, do not worry. When you give us a call, and explain your case to one of our advisors, we will be able to determine this for you.
Aside from this, there are two other key factors you need to bear in mind. Have you seen a doctor for your injuries? This is crucial if you are to claim, as the medical report that is provided by your doctor serves as the claim’s most important piece of evidence. Last but not least, the incident must have occurred within the last three years.
