Accidents in public places compensation claims

You should expect safety measures to have been taken to ensure you are looked after in public places, such as when using footpaths, shopping centres,  parks and pools.

However, poor conditions could lead to an accident which is not your fault. These may be due to:

  • Unrepaired potholes in paths or roads.
  • Wobbly paving stones.
  • Missing kerbstones.
  • Hazards caused by poorly undertaken road works.
  • Holes left in footpaths after removal of lamp posts or other fixed features.
  • Icy pavements which have not been gritted or salted.
  • Poor lighting.

If you’ve had a slip, trip or fall type accident in a public space and would like advice about compensation, our personal injury solicitors are just a phone call away. Please be aware that time limits will apply, so contact us today and we’ll guide you every step of the way.

Since Elizabeth Maliakal took over my case for medical negligence. I am pleased to say her service was outstanding. Her communication was excellent. She was always up to date and made sure to keep in touch with me regularly. Elizabeth made sure I understood what was happening and always answered my questions in depth. Coming from a foreign background, I struggle to articulate my thoughts and feelings because of the language barrier, but Elizabeth worked her way around this. I am grateful for all her hard work. Thank you to Elizabeth Maliakal and Hudgell Solicitors.

Thank you to Hudgell Solicitors particularly Sarah Moore who was assigned to my case. I was kept well informed throughout the whole process via email and phone, and always received a prompt reply to any questions that I had. It took a long time for my case to come to close for various reasons but never during this time did I feel rushed or pressured into making a decision. Sarah was very empathetic and supported me throughout with her excellent level of knowledge and professionalism. Thank you again.

FAQs

FAQs

How much compensation will I get from my personal injury claim?

The amount you can expect to receive in personal injury compensation depends on your specific case details. Factors affecting your compensation can include the nature of your injury or illness, the impact the negligence has on your day to day health, your ability to work and your future health, including any long-term care.

Compensation damages may be awarded for:

  • Pain and suffering caused.
  • Loss of earnings and future loss of earnings (such as being at a disadvantage in the labour market / loss of employability and reduction in potential earnings.).
  • Cost of surgery or medical procedures required after the negligence.
  • Adaptions required to your home to help with daily living.
  • Costs of occupational therapy requirements, such as aids and appliances to assist with daily needs.
  • Costs of current or future care.
  • Travel expenses for medical appointments or equipment.

Can I make a personal injury claim on behalf of a child?

Agreed settlements will need to be approved by court, but our expert personal injury solicitors will guide you through this process.

What is the time limit for making a personal injury claim?

If aged 18 and over, you will typically have three years from the date that the accident occurred.
For under-18s, there is no time limit. However, once a child reaches 18, the standard 3 year claim period comes into effect.

Will I need to go to court to claim personal injury compensation?

Personal injury claims rarely need to go to court, and usually only do so in very complex cases.
