Public Liability Accidents

If you have had an accident or sufferred a personal injury whilst on public property, which was not your fault, the laws governing public liability will apply and you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. You may be able to make an accident claim for personal injury compensation if the accident occurred through no fault of your own and it can be shown that the person responsible should have taken steps to prevent the accident, or minimise the risk of accident and injury.

The person or company owning or being responsible for maintaining the public area should have taken out a public liability insurance policy to compensate members of the public for any injury they sustain whilst on the property caused by their negligence; therefore your personal injury claim for compensation will be made against that insurance policy.

If you have suffered an injury in an accident as the result of the actions of a company or individual, whether on their premises or in a public place, contact us and we will be able to let you know if you are entitled to make a public liability compensation claim.
