When a trip to the shops costs more than you bargained for

We often relate personal injury claims to motor vehicle accidents or workplace injuries, but did you know that you might also be entitled to compensation for other injuries?

Examples can include slipping on loose food or liquid spills in a supermarket, falling on flooring or steps which are in disrepair, getting hurt playing sport or during other activities… the list is endless.

If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to damages.

Things like a failure to properly clean a spill, signpost a wet area, maintain floors or stairs, ensure adequate security or crowd control, can all form the basis of a claim.

In these cases, which are often referred to as public liability cases, damages can be claimed for:-

  • Pain, suffering and disfigurement, and loss of ability to engage in everyday life activities.
  • Past and future loss of income.
  • Past and future care and assistance.
  • Past and future medical expenses.

So if you have sustained injuries as a result of someone else’s failure or omission, call DBH Lawyers today on 1800 324 324 or send us a message for advice in relation to whether you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
