Accidents in Public Places Claims

Have you had an accident on a street, in a park, or in a public place? Everyone is entitled to feel safe when going about their day, and if you have been injured through no fault of your own, you could be entitled to Accident in Public Place compensation. 

Businesses and local authorities have a duty to ensure their premises, roads, and pathways are safe. The last thing you expect is to be injured in a shop or walking down a road, and we understand that these injuries can have a significant impact on your life.

If you have had an accident in a public place, you could be entitled to compensation. Our panel of accidents in public places solicitors will speak with you and determine whether you have a claim. This is true even if you do not necessarily know who is responsible for the injury. Our injury compensation panel will investigate your claim and establish who is responsible.

If you believe you have an accident in a public place compensation claim, get in touch with one of our panel of experts today.


What Type of Public Accident Can I Claim For?

There are various types of accidents in public places, all varying in severity. Some of the common accidents our panel see are:

  • Accidents in areas owned or managed by local councils
  • Accidents in supermarkets
  • Children accidents, including school injuries
  • Hazards left by poorly undertaken road works
  • Holes left in footpaths after removal of lampposts and other features
  • Icy pavements and roads
  • Missing or raised kerbstones
  • Poor lighting
  • Unrepaired potholes in paths and roads

If your accident sounds familiar to any of the above, you may be entitled to claim. Get in touch with our expert panel of public injury solicitors to find out if you are.


What Evidence do I Need to Support my Public Injury Claim?

It is more than likely our panel members will need evidence when building your injury case. This evidence will ensure the other party accepts total liability and you get the compensation you deserve.

Evidence might include a photograph of the location the injury took place. If it is a raised paving stone, for example, a photo of it with a tape measure to show how high it is from the ground in relation to other paving stones can be helpful.

We will also use medical reports as evidence when challenging the other party.

Is There a Time Limit for Making an Accident in Public Places Claim?

Yes, in most cases, public injury claims need to be made within three years of when the accident occurred. Our advice would be to contact an expert accident in public places solicitor as soon as you can.

This time limit is different for those under 18, who until their 21st birthday to claim compensation if their parent or guardian didn’t claim at the time.
