Public places are responsible for safety

The owners or occupiers of public places have a legal responsibility to minimise the risk of accidents to those who visit their premises.

Typically these accidents include:

  • Slips
  • Trips
  • Being struck by falling objects
  • Bites from dogs or other animals

If you have suffered an injury in a public place contact us directly to discuss your potential claim with a member of our team.

Whilst you have three years to register your claim at court (from the date of the accident) it is vital to collect evidence, such as photographs, as soon as possible as this may not be available at a later date.

We at Emmott Snell Solicitors have dealt with a number of cases of claims in this complex area of personal injury law ranged from low to high value.

You can rest assured that no matter how serious your injury or how difficult your claim we will offer you the fullest advice and personal service provided by our dedicated and sympathetic team who will strive not only to win your case but to fight for the best possible settlement.
