Accident injury in public specialists
Accidents in public are very common, but most victims don’t realise that they have a right to claim for compensation if they’ve been genuinely injured.
Remember, if you have been injured in a accident that was not your fault, then it is your right to claim medical assistance and compensation.
Accidents in the public cover a wide range of scenarios, including:
- Tripping over a raised paving flag
- Slipping on water at the entrance to a convenience store
- Falling down some steps in a shopping centre
- Slipping on a grape on the floor of a superstore
The person, organisation or company in control of the area where the accident happened, is under a general duty to make all reasonable attempts to avoid a foreseeable (obvious) injury. That can be achieved by having regular inspections; a maintenance policy; or a cleaning policy.
Most businesses and organisation will have sufficient insurance policies for public accidents and your claim will be handled by us and the insurance company.
