All companies have a duty of care to visitors to their premises, including members of the public or employees from other companies, to ensure that there is no risk of injury while visiting them. If you have been injured whilst in a public place such as a shop, supermarket or car park, please contact us to discuss your claim with a free consultation.
To assess the claim, we will need to know important information about the accident, such as where and how the accident happened and the injuries you have suffered as a result. Details of any witnesses to the accident and copies of photos taken at the scene will be very helpful to assess the case, and to assist in proving your claim, so please ensure you keep all documentation safe.
Councils also have a responsibility to ensure that all pavements, roads and bridle paths are clear of defects and well-maintained to avoid accidents. The local Highways Authority has a duty to make sure that all roads are properly maintained in a reasonable condition, and if you have been injured as a result of a road not being maintained to a reasonable condition, you may be entitled to compensation.
It is important to gather as much evidence as possible after the accident, especially by taking photographs of the defect on the road or pavement showing the depth or height of the defect and the location.
