Claims for Accidents in a Public Place

We offer no obligation legal advice on whether you can make a claim for your public place accident.

Injured by a needle or other sharp object?

A needle stick injury is where the skin is accidentally pierced by a needle or other sharp object. As well as the initial wound, needle stick injuries can also lead to infection by various blood-borne diseases such as the hepatitis virus.

While the risk of a needle stick injury is higher in places such as hospitals or health centers, injury can still occur in many other places including those accessible to the public. In addition, anyone whose job it is to handle refuse, waste disposal, or who undertakes cleaning duties has the potential to be injured by sharp objects if they are not provided with the correct safety equipment.

I've been injured in a Public Place, what can I claim for?

We always cover the two main aspects of a compensation claim in detail: we seek damages in relation to your injury, and we seek remuneration for your financial losses. This gives you a comprehensive public liability compensation claim that will do what you really need it to do. We won't do a quick fix claim that leaves you exposed to future difficulties - we do things properly and always in your best interests.
