Injured in a Public Place

Injured in a Public Place

If you or someone you know has been injured in a shopping centre, gym, hotel, restaurant or any public place, then please speak to one of our Personal Injury specialists today on 01256 844888.

Everyday people suffer from injuries whilst walking on pathways or going about their daily business in shops, cafes or gyms. These types of injuries come unexpected and can often have a big effect on people’s lives.

For example, a slip or trip on a wet shop floor could cause a slipped disc or fracture that puts you out of action for months, unable to work and needing ongoing treatment for your pain and injuries. The injuries could mean that you have to sacrifice hobbies once enjoyed and leave you in a poor financial position.

Compensation is possible if the accident occurred as a result of someone else’s negligence. Council’s have a responsibility to ensure that pathways and highways are safe and free from hazards by carrying out regular inspections and repairs where necessary. Uneven paving or damage to railings, steps, parks and public areas could put them at fault if someone suffers an injury. Businesses also have responsibility to keep their customers or clients safe. Failure to use appropriate warning signs or keep their public areas free of trip hazards, faulty equipment or train staff correctly could leave them to blame for injuries sustained. 

If you are not sure whether you have a claim it is worth calling our team to discuss your circumstances. Our team can be reached on 01256 844888 or by emailing
