Making a public liability claim
If you have suffered injury as the result of a slip, trip or fall in a public place, then you may be entitled to make a public liability claim for financial compensation.
Slips, Trips and Falls
Slips and trips can happen anywhere and are often caused by:
• Wet floors
• Uneven flooring
• Cracked or uneven pavements
• Unexpected obstacles
• Inadequate lighting
• Ice or snow in areas that should have been cleared
In a public place such as in the street, in a park or in a shop or restaurant, it is the responsibility of the owner of the business, or the local council (if it is an open public area) to ensure that if any of the above occur, they are dealt with in such a way as to prevent accidents happening, by removing the danger and/or clearly signposting it. If this has not been adequately dealt with and you are injured as a result, then you are entitled to make a public liability claim.
