Accidents in public buildings
If you are unlucky enough to have been involved in an accident in any building which is open to the public, for example a bank, restaurant, or supermarket, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the owner. Let’s suppose you were in a hotel and you caught your toe on a piece of rather threadbare carpet. If you fell and fractured a limb, you might be able to make a claim for your injury against the owner of the hotel. Owners have a responsibility to ensure that guests are as safe and healthy as possible, so if you have an accident in a hotel, or food poisoning after eating in one, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. You and your personal injury lawyer would have to prove that the owner’s negligence caused your accident and injury or illness.
Owners of buildings that are open to the general public will have personal liability insurance, which covers them against possible personal injury compensation claims, so the compensation amounts do not come out of their own pockets.
