Why might I look for solicitors in Bankside?
If you have had any sort of accident that you can prove was not your fault, and you suffered an injury or injuries, you may be looking for a firm of injury solicitors Bankside or elsewhere so that they could help you file a personal injury compensation claim.
You may also be wishing to file a personal injury compensation claim because you have been told by your doctor that you have an illness that you can prove you contracted because of someone else’s negligence. You would need solicitors in Bankside, or others based elsewhere, to assist you in making the claim.
Accidents in public places
If you slip, trip and fall in the street, or in a building which is open to the general public, perhaps a shop, art gallery or restaurant you may be able to make a claim for your injuries. If the accident occurs in the street, you should call the police and an ambulance. The police will write a report which you will need if, at a later date, you are to make a personal injury compensation claim. They should also inform the local authority of the accident if it was caused because of a poorly-maintained road or pavement.
If you have an accident in a building, inform a member of staff and ensure the details, including those of witnesses, are recorded in the accident book, and seek immediate medical treatment. You can also take photographs of the scene of the accident as these may be useful as supporting evidence for your claim.
