If you’re looking for advice about making a claim following an accident in any sort of public area – we are here to help.
Can I make a claim for an accident in a public place?
If the accident wasn’t your fault, the responsibility for an accident in a public place usually rests with the owner of the premises or property in which the accident took place or with the local authority if it occurred in a public space such as the highway or a park.
The local authority or the owner of the premises has a legal responsibility to minimise the risk of an accident occurring and where we can prove you were injured because they have failed in that duty of care, we’ll pursue a personal injury compensation claim on your behalf.
Clear and practical advice every step of the way

Does a public place have to be outside?
No, the public parts of buildings (including areas where some privacy is afforded such as the toilets) can be counted as a public place. We have handled cases for a variety of accidents that have happened in places such as: shops, restaurants, hotels, hospitals, supermarkets and gyms.
Are these claims limited to slips, trips and falls?
No, although these types of accidents are by far the most common. Injuries can happen in all manner of ways and we have handled cases where signs have fallen on clients, a waiting room chair has collapsed beneath the client and faulty gym equipment has crushed a client’s foot.
