You should be able to take it for granted that any built environment you spend time in will be safe enough to not pose a risk of doing you an injury as the result of an accident that was not in any way your fault. This will be true when you enter another person’s home, but especially so when you or your loved ones are on the grounds of a property operated or owned by a public body or private enterprise.
These types of organisations have a legal responsibility to make sure that their buildings do not put visitors at risk of being involved in an accident that was not their fault. If they do, the injured party might be able to take some form of personal injury action with the aid of first-class 100% no-win, no-fee* personal injury solicitors in Hungerford.

Imagine that you’re outside your local hospital waiting for a bus home after having been to visit a poorly relative. You’re leaning on a wall that separates the hospital car park behind you from the pavement where you’re waiting for your bus. Suddenly, the wall buckles and crumbles, causing you to fall down. Multiple bricks fall on you, causing an array of injuries.
Fortunately you’re in the right place as far as getting medical treatment is concerned, but once you’ve been treated and have returned home, you might like to think about suing the hospital trust that was responsible for the upkeep of the wall for compensation because of the suffering they have caused.
The hospital concerned would have had a responsibility to make sure that the wall concerned was strong enough to stand somebody leaning against it. If it could not withstand this, it would be likely that it was structurally unsafe and would have needed to be replaced or strengthened. If you suffered especially nasty injuries that could have an ongoing effect on your quality of life or ability to earn a living, you could be entitled to a pretty decent sum in compensation.
If you’d like to get a feel for the type of money that decent 100% no-win, no-fee* solicitors in Hungerford might be able to bag for you in circumstances such as these, you could do a lot worse than using the 30-second claims calculator on the right of this page.
