If you have suffered a personal injury whilst in a public place and you believe it was not your fault, contact the expert personal injury solicitors at Forbes and get your compensation claim started today. We handle personal injury claims, including accidents in a public place on a ‘no win no fee basis’ to ensure limited financial risk to you and leaving you to focus on recovery.

Accidents can strike at any time, even when you are in a public place, whether on the street, enjoying a day at the park or shopping at the supermarket. Councils, shop owners, businesses and public bodies have a duty of care to ensure the safety of the public as much as is reasonable by minimising risk of injuries. If they fail in minimising risk to the public and someone is injured as a result, they may be liable.

Can you Claim Compensation?

If you have suffered a personal injury whilst in a public place and you believe it was due to negligence on the responsible body’s part, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries.

A small slip, trip or fall can often be shrugged off, but unfortunately some accidents can have long-lasting effects. An accident in a public place can lead to a variety of injuries; from the very minor cuts and bruises, to severe sprains, broken bones and in the worst cases possible – permanent disabilities or fatalities.

It's important to realise that legal help is available if you have suffered a personal injury. A compensation claim handled by one of our expert solicitors will reflect the severity of your injuries and help cover any loss of finances if you have been unable to work due to your accident as well as any on-going private medical treatments or rehabilitation programs should you need them.
