Accidents in Public Places

If you have been injured by a slip, trip or fall in a public place which could have been avoided had the local authority or owner/occupier taken reasonable care to make the area safe, you could be entitled to compensation. Our expertise includes:

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Claims against local authorities – for example, for injuries sustained in parks or public buildings
  • Claims against private individuals or companies – for example, for injuries sustained in supermarkets, shops, privately owned car parks, or sports and recreation grounds

An accident, in a public place (including on the road/pavement, car parks, in supermarket/shopping centres or even in a restaurant) can not only be distressing and embarrassing but can lead to injuries, sometimes serious and life-changing.

 

Slip, trips and falls that are a result of another party not complying with their legal duties, can result in you being eligible for a claim for compensation – this is not just for your injuries but even to cover your income for any time off work and medical costs that you have needed to pay for. It is important that you report your accident to the party on whose premises you had a slip (in the case of a public road, the local authority), and take any photographs of the area in question. If there are any witnesses, be sure to take their details also.

 

You have 3 years from the date of your accident to claim and it is recommended that you contact a legal advisor as soon as possible to ensure that they can prepare the strongest claim for you. If you feel that you have a claim as a result of a slip, trip or fall in a public place, we at Fairmont Legal, can assess your claim and advise you whether it is one that can be pursued. We will ensure that you are exposed to the least stress and aim to conclude your claim as quickly as possible on a ‘no win no fee’ basis.
