Accidents in Public Places

Accidents in public places are fairly common and may be caused by a number of reasons; however, many people are unsure what exactly constitutes a claim and whether they are entitled to compensation for an injury.Our experienced personal injury solicitors can claim compensation for you if you have had an accident in the last three years in a shop, supermarket, public house, or any other premises you were visiting.

Our experienced personal injury solicitors can claim compensation on your behalf if you have had an accident in the last three years whilst in a shop, street, supermarket, public house, or any other premises you were visiting.

We work closely with our clients to to establish a timeline of events to determine exactly how and where the accident happened. From there we are in a strong position to advise on their best course of legal action, and whether or not their claim is valid to take forward. Our solicitors are here to guide you through every step and to evaluate the chances of success before committing to lengthy court proceedings.

What to do before making your claim

We advise anybody who has suffered an accident in a public place to take photographic or video evidence of the event, as well as a professional medical report that details any injuries as a result of the accident. Due to the nature of these claims, we also advise that you seek professional legal support as soon as possible to determine the level of compensation that you may be due to cover medical costs.

Slater Heelis takes all the consequences of your accident into account when we make a claim – not just the pain and suffering you’ve had to endure. We will claim back your loss of earnings. If you’ve had to undergo any private surgery or physiotherapy treatment, we will recover those costs for you. These types of claims are often disputed, but we have the expertise and commitment to make your claim succeed.
