You may be able to make a claim for an injury in a public park if your accident was caused by hazardous equipment, a badly maintained walkway or inadequate lighting. Injuries that happen in these conditions can range in severity, but may affect your ability to work and take part in everyday activities. Additionally, there is a degree of harm that often accompanies physical injuries.

Often, accidents in public parks are not merely unfortunate events but happen due to the negligence of those responsible for maintaining these spaces. Below are common instances where negligence could result in an accident in a public park:
Each of these situations represents a lapse in the duty of care owed to the public by the council or private company responsible for the area.
Accidents in public parks can result in various types of injuries, each with unique repercussions and requirements for recovery. Below is an overview of some common injuries for which we frequently help our clients to claim compensation:
It's vital to understand that the effects of an injury aren't just physical. Emotional and effects are equally as important in the way they affect you and those close to you. It’s also important to consider the financial implications that can arise if you’re unable to work, or if you need to pay for care while recovering from an injury.
Navigating a compensation claim after experiencing an injury in a public park can seem like a daunting experience at first. Our team is committed to managing the challenges for you and simplifying the process, to make sure you can focus on your recovery while we work to secure your compensation.

Throughout the entire process, we’ll provide you with clear updates on the progress of your case, making sure you have all the information needed to make educated decisions. With Switalskis guiding you, your main focus can remain on your recuperation and recovery.
Generally, personal injury claims must be started within three years from the date you were injured. Here are some key exemptions to this standard three-year period:
Given that the claims procedure can be time-consuming and each case presents its own unique set of challenges, the sooner we can start, the better. Call us as soon as you believe you may have grounds to make a claim and, if making a claim is possible, we can start the process ahead of any deadlines that might apply.
Compensation for personal injuries, including those suffered in public parks, is generally divided into two key categories:
Compensation depends heavily on the individual circumstances you’ve faced, so it’s impossible to provide an estimate of how much you could receive without detailed information about your experience.
For the majority of our personal injury claims, we operate on a no win, no fee basis. If the claim is successful, a previously agreed percentage of your compensation award will contribute towards your legal costs. Additional support may also be available to you, such as legal expenses cover as part of an insurance policy or trade union membership.
We understand that pursuing legal action can feel overwhelming, especially when you're already dealing with the repercussions of an injury. That's why we aim to make the process as stress-free as possible. If you're anxious about the financial aspects of making a claim, reach out to our team today and we’ll help you to understand the options available to you.
