Public Place Injury

Claiming Compensation for an Injury in a Public Place 

public place injury

Accident in a shop

The owner of any place open to the public has a legal duty to ensure that anyone visiting that place is safe from injury. If they have neglected their duty and their negligence has caused you to injure yourself then you may be able to claim compensation. Examples include injuries caused by  trips on uneven paving slabs, a slip on a spillage that has not been cleaned up promptly, or a fall due to a poorly maintained handrail.

The owners of any public place should have insurance to cover any personal injury compensation claims resulting from accidents on their premises. The local council will be insured for any claims resulting from injuries in the street or in the road caused by their negligence such as bad maintenance. You can claim compensation for your pain and suffering together with any financial losses such as loss of income or costs involved in medical treatment resulting from your injury.
