    Most bizarre public place incidents


    Public place incidents 

    Have you had a slip, trip or fall in a public place? Did you suffer injuries through no fault of your own? You may be able to claim compensation if you have answered yes to these questions.

    Falls in a public place are amongst the most common types of compensation claims, but what are the most bizarre public place incidents and could you claim if you’ve had an accident at work, a road traffic accident or a slip, trip or fall in a public place?

    Sometimes it is the most simple and strange things that can cause the worst injuries. Catching heal in an escalator, or tripping over something that should not have been there are just a couple of examples of how slips, trips and falls happen. The severity of the resulting injuries often depend on how the victim lands, and what on, rather than how they fell.

    Incidents can be bizarre and unusual; however, work accidents, accidents on the roads and public place incidents are fairly common and often, they occur through no fault of the individual. If you have had an accident or you have fallen in a public place within the last 3 years you may be able to claim public liability compensation.
