Public Injury Claims

When you have an accident in a public place

Owners or occupiers of property have a duty of care to all visitors to their premises, to ensure that they are not at risk of injury while visiting them. Local authorities and other public bodies also have a responsibility to ensure that all pavements, footways, roads and bridle paths are clear of defects and well-maintained to avoid accidents.

Services also offered in

If you have been harmed in an accident that happened in a public space, you may be able to claim compensation if the owner or occupier of the premises failed to ensure your safety. While most people recover from their injuries in time, others can be left with a long-term disability, and facing financial difficulties. The compensation will reflect not only the pain and suffering but also financial losses and expenses to assist with:

  • paying the bills if you can’t work because of your injuries
  • paying to adapt your home or car if you are physically disabled
  • paying for private medical treatment to help you to recover more quickly.
