Claiming for accidents in a public place
Accidents that take place in a public are all too common because they tend to be high traffic areas, which are frequently not maintained to a high standard. If you have been injured in a public place then it may be possible for you to make a personal injury claim.
You can make a claim for an injury you sustained in a public place if:
- The accident was caused by someone else’s negligence
- The accident took place in the past three years
- The accident is a public space.
If your injuries were sustained in such a manner, then we can help you to file a claim for compensation, which has a good chance of being successful.
Who is to blame for accidents in public spaces?
In order to make a claim for personal injury compensation there needs to be someone who you can apportion blame to. When it comes to accidents in public places, it is usually the fault of the person who owns the land. This could be a council to local authority, and employer, or a business owner.
If they have not maintained their land so that it is safe to use or followed healthy and safety regulations, and this results in an accident, you can file a claim against them.
Who will pay my compensation?
Personal injury compensation for accidents that take place in a public place will generally be paid by the landowner’s insurance company, so there is no need to have any qualms about making a claim against the person who owns the land because it is very unlikely they will have to pay any compensation out of their own pockets.
