If you are looking for an accident solicitor in Burnham-on-Crouch, it could be that you are thinking about making a public liability personal injury claim. You may not be sure what one is, so here are some facts about these types of claim.
If you were injured in an accident in a public place, such as a cinema, supermarket or restaurant, then you may be able to make a public liability claim for your injury. The accident should not have been your fault, and you should have reported it to a member of staff and logged in the accident book. Owners of premises have a responsibility to their customers and should ensure that every precaution is taken to ensure their safety.
Public places are also streets, roads and public areas such as parks, which come under the jurisdiction of your local authority. There should be no potholes in roads and no broken paving stones. The local authority has a responsibility to keep such areas well maintained.
A public liability claim can also be brought against the emergency services, as even though ambulances and police vehicles have at times to speed through towns and cities, they have a responsibility to ensure the safety of pedestrians and other road users.
If you have an accident on public transport, then you can also file for a public liability claim if you can prove negligence on the part of the operator.
Those responsible for public places have public liability insurance, and it is their insurance companies which will pay out if there is a successful claim made against the owners of premises. Local authorities budget for possible public liability claims.
