Public accidents

Wherever we go, we rely on local authorities to keep us safe. Sometimes accidents occur in these places which can arise from any number of incidents, from slipping on wet supermarket floors to tripping over maintenance lines and cables or loose paving slabs.

Some of the most common accidents take place on the pavement as a result of defective tarmac, poorly maintained concrete, curbs or ice at the side of the road in winter. These cases are often made against the local authorities responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of our streets under the Highways Act.

At Claim Today Solicitors, we know that these accidents happen, and we know the life-changing detrimental elements that some of these injuries can have when you consider work, family life, and personal wellbeing. That’s why we are experienced in assisting with public accident claims and our expert lawyers will be able to assist you in working out who is responsible and how to move forward with your claim.

One of our expert serious injury solicitors will review the circumstances of your accident and its short and long term impact on your health and wellbeing in order to ensure that the injury claim process is smooth and the way forward is clear throughout.

Who would I make the claim against?

At Claim Today Solicitors, we know that in these cases the liable party is often unclear, but we are experienced in assisting with public accident claims and our expert lawyers will be able to assist you in working out who is responsible and how to move forward with your claim.

If you slip or trip and injure yourself due to someone else’s negligence, you may be legally entitled to compensation. In most of the above situations, the owner, occupant or event organiser will have insurance to cover them against your claim.

No win no fee

Personal injury compensation claims, clinical negligence claims, and serious injury claims made with Claim Today Solicitors are offered with “no win no fee”. Meaning that if we don’t win your case, you don’t pay a penny.

The main benefits of No Win No Fee are that there is no money to pay up front, and only to be paid as a percentage of your total compensation amount at the end of a winning case. Meaning you need not worry about money in order to make a claim, and to benefit from legal advice as soon as possible.
