Have you slipped or tripped in Knighton?
Slipping or tripping up in public can be embarrassing, but worse than that, it can cause a number of injuries. If you are physically injured because you’ve slipped or tripped in Knighton, a decent injury solicitor may be able to help you to claim financial compensation for your injuries. Here we will take a look at some common questions concerning filing a claim for falling in public.
How do you know who was at fault?
You may feel like slipping is your own fault, but that’s not necessarily true. Was the lighting adequate? Was the floor dry? Was the escalator operating correctly? It can be the case that the negligence of the establishment in which you fell led to your accident.
Filling out an accident report, getting contact information of witnesses and pictures of where you fell can help you to see if there was any wrongdoing on their part. If in doubt or if you don’t have these items, our claims experts can help assess your case free of charge.
What counts as a public area?
A public area can be either indoors or outdoors, and either publicly or privately owned. For example, if you’ve slipped in a restaurant or shopping centre, school, hotel, salon, council building or park, you could be entitled to seek compensation.
If in doubt and you want to discuss your potential injury claim, experts are available by phone to help.
When were you hurt?
You are eligible to make a claim for compensation providing that your accident occurred within the past three years.
