Slips and trips can happen anywhere, at any time and can affect any one of us. But what if it wasn’t your fault?
These types of accidents are often perceived as trivial or minor. However, if you are a victim of such an accident there can be real consequences, including significant physical injury and ongoing discomfort. Your injuries may prevent you from working, resulting in financial hardship.
Organisations Duty of Care
All public and private organisations have a responsibility to ensure that their premises or facilities do not present a danger to their visitors. This includes taking reasonable steps to minimise risk and prevent hazards which may cause a person to injure themselves. Similarly, local authorities are under a duty to inspect and maintain roads and pavements so that they are safe for public use.
If these legal obligations are not met, and you suffer as a result, we will claim the compensation you have a right to receive.
We have put together a guide on how to take photos of defects or potholes, which may help to support a personal injury or accident claim.
