Accidents in public places

Home » Services » Dispute resolution » Accident & personal Injury » Accidents in public places

Accidents regularly occur in public places and the last thing you may expect when walking down the street, or in a shop, restaurant or other public place, is to be injured. It is often easy to blame yourself for such an accident, especially if you feel embarrassed about it. But business owners and local authorities have a duty of care to keep you safe. If they have failed to do so, and they were responsible for the accident, you may be able to claim compensation. 

Your injuries may have stopped you from being able to carry on with everyday life, which can be frustrating for both the injured party and your family. You will also have to deal with the physical pain of the injury and, potentially, any loss of income if you are unable to work. 

Some typical type of public accidents are: 

  • Slips or falls in supermarkets due to spillages or obstacles 
  • Pedestrian accidents caused by poorly maintained footpaths and roads 
  • Sports injuries (including football, gym accidents and horse riding injuries) 
  • Dog bites 
  • Childrens accidents, including schools and nurseries 

By making a claim for your accident, you could secure compensation to help give you access to rehabilitation and support your needs for making the best possible recovery.
