Accidents happen, but if you have an accident in a public area and are not at fault you could be entitled to make a public liability claim for compensation.
Whether it is a small slip, a little trip or a big fall, there is a high chance you will end up with an injury or damage of some sort. Many injuries suffered when in public are caused by the negligence of the owner or proprietor of the area where the accident happened.
The owner or proprietor of the area where the accident happens is required to ensure the area is safe and secure at all times, and that all health and safety guidelines are followed. If they fail to do this and an accident happens, you may be entitled to make a public liability claim.
Public liability claims can be made for accidents in any public area. This includes shops, supermarkets, schools, leisure centres and public pathways. As long as the accident happened in a public place and the fault lies with someone else a public liability claim can be made and you could be awarded compensation.
Public liability compensation covers a range of damages such as personal injury, damage to personal belongings, medical expenses, travel expenses and lost wages. As every case is different the exact amount you receive can vary but emotional, financial and physical damages are all taken into consideration. Compensation is given to help you recover and return to how you were before the accident.
