Accidents in Public and Other Places

Claiming Compensation

If you have been involved in an accident in a public place within the last 3 years, you may be entitled to claim compensation. You are only entitled to claim compensation up to 3 years from the date of your accident, after this date you will no longer be able to claim.

Although efforts are made to ensure that our streets, shopping centres, parks, gyms, education establishments etc are safe for the public, accidents can happen. If you were injured as the result of an accident in a public place you may be entitled to claim compensation. Whether the accident was due to the negligence of the local authority or an owner responsible for the maintenance of their premises, we can assist you. For example, if you are injured in a supermarket because you slipped on a wet patch, you may be able to claim against the supermarket. Such claims require us to prove that the supermarket, or local authority, either did not have a procedure in place to detect potential hazards or that they did and did not follow it. Always ensure that you take full details of who you spoke to at the premises and the address of the premises where you slipped or tripped.

When can I claim compensation?

You can claim compensation if you were injured in a public place due to a third party’s negligence.

What injuries can I claim for?
You can claim compensation for any physical injuries and may be entitled to claim compensation for any psychological injury.
How do I prove that the third party was at fault?

We require to show that they either had a procedure in place to detect hazards which could result in injury and did not follow this, or that no procedure existed and had it existed you would not have been injured.

Let us worry about this!

What if the accident was partly my fault?

If for whatever reason you believe, or it is found that, you are partly to blame for the accident. There will be a reduction of your compensation. This may be a percentage and we will negotiate this with your employer’s solicitors on your behalf.

How much will it cost me?
NOTHING! We pursue all of our claims on a ‘no win no fee’ basis which means you don’t pay a penny if you are not successful.
How much compensation will I receive?

The amount of compensation you receive is wholly dependent on what your injuries are and how long they take to resolve. As a result, it will not be possible for us to give you an estimate as to how much your claim will settle for until we are in possession of all your losses and medical reports.
