Accidents in public places
Many people know that legally speaking they may have a right to make a claim for compensation if they have been injured as a result of an accident in a public place. What many people don’t realise however until they speak to our solicitors in Wexham Street is that “public place” can refer to both public buildings and public areas.
For example, there is a difference between accidents which have occurred inside in public places, and those which have occurred outside.
No matter where your accident has occurred though Accident Advice Helpline’s team of specialist solicitors in Wexham Street may be able to help you make a claim for financial compensation if you have received a personal injury which was not your fault.
Some of the most common places that our clients have been injured in previously include supermarkets and restaurants.
Although an everyday location for many of us, supermarkets do present many opportunities for accidents and injuries to occur. For example, our solicitors have helped people who have been injured after slipping on wet floors in supermarkets. These may have been caused as a result of a leak either in a roof or with a refrigeration unit, or as a result of a spillage that has not been properly cleaned up or suitably signed as being a hazard.
Our solicitors in Wexham Street have also helped people have been injured in cafés and restaurants after they have sat on chairs and other pieces of furniture that have not taken their weight. You might even be able to make a claim for compensation if you have developed food poisoning after eating in such an establishment.
Equally, our solicitors in Wexham Street can help if you have been injured in an accident outside. This can include slips, trips or falls on pathways and pavements, as well as the road. You might even be walking along a path when a roof tile falls from a council owned property and your are injured as a result.
