Accidents in Public Compensation Claims

Can I Claim for an Accident in a Public Place?

If you have sustained an injury in a public place and that injury was not your fault then you may be entitled make a claim for compensation as a result of your accident.

Essentially, an accident in a public area is any incident that causes you physical injury which has taken place in an area that can be indoors or outdoors, but which is accessible to the general public.

Some common places that would be classed as ‘public’ include pavements, parks, gyms and leisure centres, shops and supermarkets or other places of business that you are a visiting.

Business owners and local authorities have a duty of care to keep you and the rest of the public safe. If they have failed to do so and you have been hurt as a direct result of that failure, then they could be responsible and you may be able to make a no win no fee claim.
