Why Taylor Law?
Accidents in public places
Compensation for personal injuries in public areas
If you are injured in a public place such as on the pavement, in a park or at the supermarket, then you may be entitled to claim compensation if the owner of the premises was responsible for your accident. At Taylor Law, we can represent you on a no win, no fee basis to obtain a fair settlement on your behalf.
When you are in a place accessible to the public, then the owner has a responsibility to ensure that it is reasonably safe. There is a clear risk of an accident if a floor is wet or if a pavement or pathway is uneven. If you have been injured from slipping, tripping or falling, then you should consider whether someone else might be at fault. If so, they or their insurance company should compensate you for your injuries.
Common accidents which occur in public areas include:
- Slips, trips and falls on slippery surfaces, such wet floors or icy paths
- Trips or falls on uneven or broken pavements or paths
- Slips or trips in supermarkets, shops, leisure centres, bars, hotels or other publicly accessible buildings
- Sports accidents where the pitch was dangerous or equipment faulty
- Accidents while on holiday, at home or abroad

Bringing a claim for compensation
If you have been injured following an accident in a public area, you should seek legal advice and start putting together evidence of the facts of the situation as soon as possible. If you instruct us to act on your behalf, we will go through exactly what happened with you and take your statement while the incident is still fresh in your mind.
We will contact the party responsible for your injuries to see whether they are prepared to admit liability for your accident.
We have medical specialists who will be able to prepare reports detailing the extent of your injuries and any ongoing effects they have on your life. This will enable us to negotiate a settlement with the other side on your behalf.

“Had trouble in the past with firms not having a regular point of contact and having to chase up personally for information. Found Taylor Law to be extremely well equipped to manage every element of my case and got me the outcome I asked for in our initial meeting. Wouldn’t use anyone else in the future or even consider it”.
