Accidents in Public Places

Getting the support you deserve

Accidents can occur in public places or on private premises that you are visiting. The owner or occupier of those premises has a duty to ensure that visitors are kept reasonably safe.

If they have failed to take reasonable steps to ensure your safety then you could be entitled to receive compensation for any injuries you have suffered as a result of the accident. It is important that you seek proper advice as it is not always clear who is responsible for keeping the places or premises safe.

Our specialist lawyers will be happy to use their knowledge to assist you in investigating your claim properly and cost effectively.

Contact our friendly Personal Injury Team now to find out how we can help you.
