All public and private organisations owe a duty of care to ensure all visitors to premises are safe. Local Authorities are also under a duty to ensure that pavements and public highways are in a safe condition for public use.
If you have fallen in a public place or on the street, you may be able to claim.
There are a number of things what can be useful in the event of an accident
· Take pictures of the accident scene, the floor surface, your clothing and shoes, any mats or rugs, poor signage etc. Also take pictures of any visible injury.
· Save the shoes that you were wearing and place them inside a plastic bag and tape it shut so that any materials stuck to the shoes will remain.
· Take the names and contact details of any potential witness but do not contact or speak to the witness again or attempt to get any written statements from them as this should be left to your solicitor.
· If your accident happened at work, report it to a manager so they can write it in their accident book
