If you have been injured in a public place, you may be entitled to compensation. Those responsible for overseeing public places such as parks, public squares, pavements and roadsides, supermarkets such as Tesco, Morrisons, Co-op, Sainsbury’s or Asda, shops and shopping centres are under a duty to take care for the safety of visitors. If they have failed to take reasonable care for your safety, you may be able to claim compensation if you suffer an injury.
We don’t expect to get injured as we go about our business, and the fact that it is so unexpected can make it all the harder to take. Inadequately maintained footways, falling objects and discarded or spilt material are all common causes of injuries in public places. The person, company or authority in charge of the place in which you were injured may be liable for your injury if they have failed to take adequate care to prevent your injury occurring, or to draw the hazard to your attention.
We can help you claim the compensation you are entitled to if you have suffered an injury as a result of someone else’s negligence.
