    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Solicitor in Chippenham


    Heading in to town for your regular shop is a steady and unchanging routine. You walk the same streets and cross at the same set of traffic lights. Yet on one day there may be a vital difference, one that gets unnoticed until you trip and fall over it.

    High streets are used by thousands of people every day and are full of hazards. Upturned paving slabs, unmarked wet or slippery patches or pavements with no bollards protecting pedestrians. It is these hazards that can potentially cause accidents in a public place.

    Who Is The Responsible Party?

    When you have an accident on a high street the responsibility would usually come down to the local council or local ruling authority of the town. Your solicitor in Chippenham would make a case against the council for your accident or the insurance company that the council uses for public liability.

    If you are unsure who the responsible party is for the area where you had your accident don’t put off making a claim because your representative can find out that information on your behalf.

    What Do I Need To Give My Solicitor In Chippenham?

    When you are involved in an accident before you do anything make sure that you are ok. If you are breathing ok and feel fine apart from some bumps and bruises try to get some evidence of the scene if you can. Using a mobile phone is one of the most helpful things you can do.

    Get some photographs of the hazard that caused your accident and the scene around you. This will show any viewers that there were no warnings of a hazard in the foot path. Also if there are any witnesses you can collect their details on to your phone as well so your solicitor in Chippenham can contact them at a later date.

    If you were involved in an accident in your local high street that wasn’t your fault you could be entitled to make a claim for your injuries. If you need some help or guidance on where to get started we can help.
