Accidents in Public
We specialise in obtaining compensation for injury sustained in a public place.
In our day-to-day lives we rely on others to help us stay safe. The law requires Local Authorities to inspect, maintain and repair roads and pavements and business owners to inspect, maintain and repair premises to ensure that members of the public are not in any danger.Usually, the person or organisation that owns or leases the area is legally responsible for providing an environment free of risk.
Yet, despite this legal duty of care, accidents still happen and everyday people suffer injury in public places.
A person who suffers any type of injury may require compensation to cover loss of earnings, future loss of earnings, childcare, rehabilitation and/or medical care. If you’re unsure as to whether you have a valid claim for compensation, please contact us for legal advice.
