In the unfortunate event of the above, a personal injury compensation claim can be made against the person or company owning or being responsible for maintaining the public area, property and/or land, as the same should have taken out a public liability insurance policy to compensate members of the public for any injury they sustain whilst on the property, area and/or Land caused by their negligence; therefore your personal injury claim for compensation will be made against that insurance policy.
For the avoidance of any doubt some of the most common public liability compensation claims we deal with involve:
- Injuries caused by dangerous footpaths or pavements, untreated ice and snow, pot holes, tree roots and steps or staircases in disrepair.
- Slips or Trips inside shopping centres, car parks, amusement parks and restaurants etc.
- Injuries caused by sharp objects or objects falling from a height in a public place.
- Broken down fences or other obstructions to the highways or pavements.
The above are just a few examples but there are also many other circumstances where you could be injured on public property.
