Personal Injury Solicitors & Compensation Claims
If you are on public property and suffer a personal injury that was the fault of another person, you may be able to make a compensation claim against the owner of that property.
The owner of the property should have a public liability insurance policy to cover the cost of a compensation claim. Typical examples of accidents on public property are a slip or trip in the street, fall in the supermarket or accident due to a poorly lit public area.
What is a Personal Injury?
A personal injury is a specific legal term which relates to an injury you have suffered at the expense of someone else’s negligence in the circumstances. This can also include an existing injury which has been made worse by their actions, even if this was something you suffered from in advance of the situation in which you were injured further.
What should I do if I suffer a Personal Injury?
In the instance of an accident it is always advisable to report the accident to the owner or a member of staff and, if possible, ensure the incident is recorded in an accident book. Take the names and addresses of any witnesses and, if applicable, take photographic evidence of where the accident happened. Speak to a personal injury solicitor about making a claim.
How much compensation can I claim?
The amount of compensation your can claim is fully based on the circumstances around and extent of your injuries, so if you think you have a case please get in touch with one of our specialist personal injury solicitors.
