If you have been injured in a public place and it was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
The last thing you expect is to be injured when you are out shopping, walking down a street or sitting in a pub or restaurant but every year thousands of people are injured in public places and those injuries can have a huge impact on your personal life and your finances.
Businesses have a duty of care to ensure that their premises are safe and public bodies such as local authorities must make sure that public roads and pavements are properly maintained. If you have been injured in a public place and it was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
You should report the injury to the business or organisation so there is a record of it. You should then seek medical treatment for your injury as soon as possible and you should also photograph the injury and the location of the injury (if relevant). You should also keep a record of any out of pocket expenses or lost earnings that arise as a result of the injury.
Our specialist solicitors can provide friendly and straightforward advice as to the strengths of your claim and what steps you should take next. We can also discuss funding of your case and likely timescales.
I know that you are all just doing your job, however you have given me great support through this difficult time and it’s great to feel that you’re in my corner
We were both completely happy and satisfied with the outcome. We cannot have hoped for a better outcome despite the circumstances and the potential outcome. We cannot thank Ciaran and Wheldon Law enough.
Excellent, professional service throughout. Would use Wheldon Law solicitors in the future if required. Would also recommend to family and friends.
I cannot thank you enough. You have all been amazing. Brilliant service.
I would definitely advise others of the excellent service that I received and would recommend your law firm – thank you.
Hopefully I will not need the services of a solicitor again but if I do I would not hesitate to contact your company.
I’ve never needed a solicitor before so was unsure as to what to expect. Tina put me as much at ease as possible and was very friendly and honest with what she told me. Thank you so much!
I found the advice and service provided very friendly and comforting at a time of extreme distress and all matters were dealt with very discreetly and professionally.
Gareth did a great job.
Very happy with the result and I know this is down to Wheldon Law, thus very happy with the service. Thank you.
