Peter Gartlan Solicitors’s personal injury solicitor* is available to individuals who have been injured in a public place.
Organisations or individuals who make an area accessible to the public, have a duty of care to maintain the accessible area to a reasonable standard. With over 2 decades of personal injury* experience, we have represented numerous clients who have been injured due to unsafe public places.
Peter Gartlan Solicitors’s personal injury solicitor is available to help a client receive the legal redress they deserve; following an accident in a public place.
If you have been injured in an accident in a public place, the first step should be gathering evidence. Photographs of the accident site should be taken as soon as possible following the accident.
If any passers-by witnessed the event, their contact information should be taken. Eye-witness testimony may be important later.
The accident should be reported to the owner of the property as soon as possible. If the owner of the property isn’t available, the accident should be reported to the property’s management team.
Injured parties should seek medical attention.
