Accident In A Public Place

If you have suffered an accident in a Public Place within the last 3 years and suffered personal injury you could be entitled to make a claim for injuries or losses resulting from that accident through our 'No Win, No Fee' policy.

Duty of Care, Breach of Duty & Causation

Duty of Care

Accidents in public can occur in a variety of places, but the fact is Occupiers have a duty of care for the safety of their visitors.

Breach of Duty

Occupiers must take sufficient and reasonable steps to ensure the safety of their visitors.  If an Occupier does not take reasonable steps to ensure a safe place for visitors and injury occurs through the Occupiers failings then it is likely that the Occupier has breached their statutory duty and they have been negligent.


If an Occupier has breached their duty of care and you suffer an injury as a result, you can claim compensation and recover any other reasonably incurred accident related losses.

Size Doesn't Matter

An Occupier is responsible for the safety of visitors regardless of how big or small they are.

Common Examples of Public Liability Accident:

  • Slipping accident's in supermarkets / restaurants / schools etc
  • Accident caused by defect premises
  • Accident caused by defective car parks
  • Accident caused by poor lighting
  • Accident caused by defective stairs

Public Liability Insurance

Most Businesses and Occupiers have Public Liability Insurance in place which will cover the cost of a claim made against them.

Feeling Guilty About Claiming?

Do not feel guilty about claiming.  Accidents at in public places are all too common and making a claim will only encourage the occupier to take  the reasonable steps they should already be taking to protect their visitors.
