Accidents in public places
If you have been involved in an accident in a public place which was not your fault, then Accident Advice Helpline’s solicitors in Wethersfield may be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
You can claim compensation for personal injuries if your solicitors in Wethersfield can demonstrate that the accident was caused as a result of the actions of another person. This is especially true if your accident occurred in a public place. This is because the owners and occupiers of buildings which are open for the public, for example, cafes, shops, and restaurants have a duty to ensure that the premises are kept in a safe condition.
This can involve making sure that any potential hazards, such as wet patches on the floor are cleaned up, or that objects which could cause someone to fall over have been tidied away. It is also important that the building itself is well maintained, for example, keeping carpet well secured and checking that lighting is working and adequate.
If a premises owner fail to make the area safe for the public and someone was injured as a result, then solicitors in Wethersfield may be able to make a claim against them for compensation.
