Accidents in Public Places

Claiming Compensation for an Accident in Public

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 they are not at risk of injury while visiting them. If it can be proved that insufficient Health & Safety provisions were made; then you may well be entitled to get compensation.

Councils also have a responsibility to ensure that all pavements, roads, and bridle paths are clear of defects and well-maintained to avoid accidents.

Whether you have slipped on a wet floor whilst walking around a supermarket or tripped on a poorly maintained pavement, if you suffered an injury whilst in a public place then our specialists may be able to help you.

To find out whether you can make a claim please contact our specialist solicitors using the above online enquiry form or by e-mailing personalinjury@abacus-law.co.uk or calling us on 0161 833 0044.

We offer a range of legal services
