Slips, falls and other incidents which cause personal injury* can happen in almost any public environment, but in cases where the injury has occurred due to negligence (e.g. an uneven footpath, a slippery floor, etc.) a claim for compensation may be warranted. As personal injury* specialists, MyCase Solicitors can help you secure your full entitlement if you have suffered due to an accident in a public place that was not your fault.
In public places, the person responsible for the area has a duty of care to ensure that personal injuries do not occur and they will generally have public liability insurance policies to protect themselves in case an incident does occur, so it is usually the insurance company who will provide compensation.
After suffering an injury due to an accident in a public place, you should seek medical help and any evidence and eyewitness accounts should be documented. The accident should also be reported to the owner of the property. By following these steps, you are more likely to be successful in seeking compensation.
