If you have suffered some sort of injury to the body, and/or psychologically, have had a loss of income or other financial loss, that has occurred as a result of an accident that was not your fault, then you have the right to claim compensation. An injury can be life-changing. It can affect your mobility and your ability to work. Compensation can help you get back to where you were before the accident. It will also cover the cost of any medical treatment and any physiotherapy that may help you to recover. It will also compensate you for the pain and suffering that you have experienced as a result of your accident.
The accident may occur in a public or private place. Owners of business and local Authorities have a duty of care, which means that they are required by law to keep you safe when you are using their places of business and/ or their services. The types of accidents that are often experienced are: –
- Slips, trips and falls on uneven, cracked or wet surfaces, unexpected obstacles, inadequate lighting.
- Physical or psychological illness caused by poorly maintained property
