Whether it is on a public footpath or private premises, accidents do happen. If you were not at fault you might be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
If you have been involved in an accident outside of work and don’t believe it was your fault please follow the steps outlined below:
Report – It is important to report your injury and the cause to the owners/managers of the property or land where the accident happened.
Evidence – Make sure you take note of how the accident occurred. If there were witnesses, get their names and addresses. If you have a camera or a mobile phone, take photographs which show how the accident was caused.
Treatment – You must seek medical help as soon as possible after the accident. If your injuries are severe, attend hospital or if they are minor, make an appointment with your GP. The sooner you seek treatment, the more chance you have of making a full recovery. This will also provide important evidence of the injuries you sustained.
Contact us – When you have been in an accident your first concern will be receiving treatment for your injuries. At this time you can also be bombarded with promises of recovering compensation. It is important that you chose the right people to advise you on what to do.
