Have you been injured in public?
Every day, countless Britons are injured in accidents in public places.
Most commonly, slips, trips, and falls are the cause of many painful injuries such as broken bones, head injuries, lacerations, sprains and more. It can be easy to chalk such accidents up to clumsiness or not paying attention, but what if they were caused by someone else’s actions?
A public establishment has a legal obligation to ensure all patrons are safe, by ensuring that all elements of the premises are functioning properly and safe for use. This means clearly signing wet floors, salting any icy walkways, carrying out safety tests on escalators and so on.
If you’ve had an accident in a public place and believe someone else’s negligence was to blame, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline, the UK’s leading personal injury law firm. Our no win no fee* Bearsted legal team can help you seek the maximum amount in a compensation claim, without you having to pay for expensive legal fees up front out of pocket.
Who was at fault?
In order to pursue a claim for a public injury, you should be able to prove that someone else’s negligence was responsible. If you have any images or video captured on a mobile phone, access to CCTV footage, or statements from witnesses, it’s wise to share these with your no win no fee* Bearsted solicitor to bolster the chances of a successful case.
Our team will then work diligently to ensure you get the maximum amount possible, all with the least amount of stress and inconvenience to you possible. We award over £30 million a year in damages, so you can have confidence in our high success rate to help you get what you deserve after an accident.
