Public place accident claims

Public place accidents are legally referred to as 'public liability' or 'occupiers liability'.

Public liability means that there is a public body (such as a local authority or council), company, or other party who:

  • owns or occupies the place you were injured, and
  • is liable for your injury

The owner or operator of the public place has a legal duty 'duty of care' to ensure that anywhere accessible by the public is safe.

Examples of accidents in a public place are slips, trips or falls on potholes on roads, uneven pavements, and slippery surfaces in retail and commercial premises, such as supermarkets, shops and car parks.

If you were injured in a public place as a result of another party's actions or negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

With Quittance Legal Services, your claim will be handled by a highly-experienced solicitor with an excellent track record of winning compensation for claimants who injured in a public place.
