Slip, trip, fall or other accident in a public place
As part of everyday life we are faced with many different
hazards – the majority of which do not cause us any
harm. However, there are hazards that can cause serious
injuries. If you have been injured
in an accident which was caused by someone else’s
negligence, you are legally entitled to compensation.
Each year we deal with hundreds of claims including slips, trips, falls, injuries caused by fallen masonry or other types of accident. Some examples of claims include:
Duty of care
Owners of premises have a duty of care to keep their property safe. For example, during the winter months supermarkets and shops have a duty of care to keep areas free from ice and avoid accidents. They have to ensure areas outside the store are kept gritted and salted.
What to do following an accident in a public place
- If possible, take photographs of the location, the surface and any warning signs
- Note the details of any potential witnesses (name, address and telephone number)
- Keep the shoes you were wearing – they may be needed as evidence
- If you are injured, seek medical advice as soon as possible
