NGA Solicitors can pursue a compensation claim on your behalf for accidents which occur in a public/private place which are as a result of the land owner’s negligence.

All landowners, whether the Highways Authority, Local Council or private landlords are under a duty to care to ensure that their land is well maintained and that visitors aren’t at risk to injury. Should you receive a personal injury as a result of this breach you may be entitled to compensation.

Slips, trips and falls can occur in many locations and NGA Solicitors have obtained compensation for clients for accidents which occur on pavements, highways and car parks.

Should you suffer injury following a slip or tripping accident it is beneficial that the accident is reported and photographs of the defective area are obtained. Our Solicitors will attend the scene of the accident as soon as possible and assess the defective area.
