Have you had an accident in a public place such as a supermarket or restaurant? Or slipped in the street or shopping centre within the last 3 years? If so you could be entitled to claim public liability compensation if there was negligence.
Public liability compensation claims may result from accidents in public places, whether they are owned and maintained by a local authority, or privately operated and open to the public, such as shops, railway stations, fitness centres or garages.
There are many causes to claim public liability compensation, some of the more common being poorly maintained pavements or floors; hazardous objects or substances leaking or being left as a hazard to members of the public, for example, spilled food or drink, ice or snow. In such cases, the occupier may not have assessed and treated the risk properly.
Employers may be liable for the actions and failings of their employees and contractors. Their public liability insurance may provide cover if those employees negligently injure customers or members of the public.
