Accidents in Public Places

You may have a claim for compensation should you have suffered an injury following an accident in a public place, whether it be owned privately or by a local authority.

Typically this may occur by tripping on a pavement. However, this area encompasses accidents which have occurred in a variety of locations, including:

  • Supermarkets, shops and shopping centres
  • Parks
  • Pubs and restaurants
  • Gyms and leisure centres
  • Schools and hospitals
  • Car parks

The owners or occupiers of these public places have a duty to make sure that members of the public are kept safe. Should they have breached this duty, and as result caused your accident, then you may have a claim. There are many ways in which a breach of duty may occur, however the most common are through slips, trips or falls caused by defective premises, wet floors, food and drink spills, bad lighting, cables and wires, or potholes.

Accidents happen, however, if these occur due to the negligence of others it is reasonable that you obtain the compensation you deserve. Compensation is awarded for the pain and suffering which may occur as a result of your injury. Common injuries caused can include soft tissue injuries, fractures, strains, and scarring. In extreme circumstances this could also include permanent disability or death.
