Pages On: Public Place Accidents

Suffering an accident in a public place can be unsettling and unexpected. We try to go about our lives hoping to not run into health hazards, but it’s not always up to us to prevent dangers. Wherever you are, be it a hotel, store, or gym, businesses have a duty of care to our safety, when this duty lapses, and injuries occur, they are liable and can be sued. If you have suffered such an accident and feel you are not to blame, you could be entitled to occupiers liability compensation. It could, however, be public liability compensation, if it wasn’t a business you were injured in, such as a school or on a public pavement that was poorly maintained. Regardless, there is legal help for those who have been injured in a public place.

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I was very sceptical at first as I had not had any dealings with this sort of thing but believe you me, they were very good to me right from the start. There is no pushing you to do anything you don’t want to do, they are always simply sympathetic with your plight. I didn’t think I’d stood a chance but they came through for me for which I am very grateful. Believe you me they are first class.

I was undecided whether I wanted to make a claim because of the hassle involved, which I could well do without, mainly because of the ongoing problems after my injury. After contacting, it became clear that it is a very professional company & the inquiry was dealt with promptly & professionally with a pleasant manner. I got a decision on whether I had a claim very quickly without too much hassle.
