Indulging in a hobby is a great way to let off steam but when you are involved in an accident your day can rapidly turn around. Having an accident in a public place could mean you need a solicitor in Monmouth.
For example, once upon a time shopping was a necessity that had to be done but now it has become an extensive hobby for many people and enthusiasts. Hitting the shops either on your own or with friends is a great trip out but not for your bank balance.
Public accidents can happen anywhere and most likely when you least expect it. Though you may not be thinking about it there are many hazards lying around waiting for an accident. Paving slabs, potholes and slippery patches are just some of the accidents which can happen.
Depending on where your accident takes place the responsible party for your accident is likely to vary. However in many public accidents your solicitor in Monmouth may make a claim against the local council or their representative insurance company. If you need a solicitor in Monmouth, talk to us.
A solicitor in Monmouth after your accident
Making a claim for an accident that took place in a public place is surprisingly over looked by many people. If you have slipped on the high street on a slippery patch which was not highlighted then that could be a claim.
Claims for public place accidents are often missed out on because either the injured party doesn’t know who the responsible party is or they are too embarrassed to make the claim. Having an accident can be embarrassing but if you were injured through no fault of your own it is your right to make a claim for your injuries.
If you are hesitant about making a claim after a public accident because you don’t know who the claim would be against it is worth speaking to a solicitor in Monmouth as they will have the resources to find out on your behalf.
If you have some questions regarding an accident you were involved in and would like to know what your next steps should be then get in touch.
