Survivor Guide: Visiting Edinburgh

Accidents when out and about

Becoming ill or injured during a day out while on holiday can ruin the experience completely. If you or your family members have sustained an injury due to an accident that you believe wasn’t your fault, there may be something you can do about it.

No matter where your injury or illness was sustained – from public pathways to restaurants and visitor attractions – owners of these areas have a legal responsibility to ensure your health and safety while you use their facilities.

When you do have an accident in a public place, the owner may not have met this requirement and therefore, you may have a case to claim against them for public liability.
