London is comprised of numerous districts, one of which is Southwark. Home to 30,000 people, Southwark lies to the south of the city, and is now part of Greater London, as opposed to Surrey, as was the case in ancient times. Needless to say, Southwark has changed a lot since olden times, and regeneration is the byword today. However, while the borough is undergoing many improvements, there may still be the potential for Southwark compensation to be paid if someone suffers an injury on public or council owned property in the area.
Slips, trips and falls
We have all heard of these, haven’t we? Yet while some slips, trips and falls can be down to our own inattentiveness and fault, other cases can be contributed to a potential lack of care and poor maintenance of the roads and pavements in our local area. While the vast majority of councils do an excellent job maintaining their roads and pavements, it can potentially be the case that standards may slip. If this happens, an increase in slips, trips and falls could potentially occur.
If you have suffered an accident of this type in Southwark, you might be thinking about the possibility of getting Southwark compensation. Some cases certainly do warrant compensation to be paid to the injured victim, but since each case is different, you never know whether there is a chance for compensation to be paid in your case.
What should you do next?
If you believe there is a chance that Southwark compensation might be a possibility in your situation, you should definitely get some legal advice as quickly as you can. There is a three-year period during which you must begin a claim if you are going to do so. This means you might have suffered your accident a year or two ago, and if this is so, you may still have a chance to claim.
