Public Accident

Modern life is all about movement – every day people come and go everywhere from supermarkets and shops to business premises, public and private buildings, restaurants, stadiums and concert halls. 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.

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

To give your case the best chance of success, it is important that you note down the details of your accident, including:

  • Date and Time of accident
  • Location of accident
  • Cause of accident
  • Details of witnesses
  • Photographs of the location and injury sustained in the accident

You should also report the incident to the owner of the premises, if known, and seek medical advice from a doctor or hospital.

If you have been injured in a public place as a result of someone else’s negligence, call Claim Today Solicitors now on 0800 093 9392 to speak with a Personal Injury solicitor.
