It’s important to know that Public Liability claims don’t just cover injuries in a public place – if you’ve been injured due to someone else’s fault, regardless of where you are, you may have a claim. We often help people who have been injured through no fault of their own as a result of Slip and Falls, Dog Attacks, Accidents on Footpaths and Assault.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you can show that your injury happened because someone else didn’t take the right amount of care, and your injury is sufficiently serious, you may be able to claim compensation for your pain and suffering.

To check if you may have a claim, use our free online claim check for an assessment.

Any injury that has happened because another party has breached their duty of care towards you may fall under the umbrella of Public Liability. Common injuries include:

  • Injuries from slips and trips, for example in retail outlets, on footpaths, and in rental properties
  • Injuries from dog or other animal attacks
  • Injuries from physical or Sexual assaults
  • Injuries from sporting accidents (including water sports)
  • Injuries from defective products
  • Injuries from unsafe premises

If you’ve been injured, you may be entitled to:

  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Past loss of earnings
  • Loss of future earnings (if your capacity to work is affected)
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • The cost of care provided to you by family members or professional care providers

Firstly, get in touch with our team. We’ll organise a free initial appointment where we’ll understand your situation, investigate the details of your incident and collect evidence. We’ll explain this process in more detail in your no-obligation appointment.

Injuries at work or on the road are covered under separate areas of law – and you may have a Workers Compensation or Road Accident claim instead.

You have up to three years to make a Public Liability claim, but it’s important to take action quickly. Gathering evidence for your case may take time. By taking steps to resolve your case earlier you can spend more time focussing on your health and recovery.

We’re on your side and here to help simplify the claims process for you. You only have one opportunity to obtain compensation for your injury – so you need the best possible legal team, with the right experience and care. Having our expert lawyers looking after you means that you'll have a team who will go above and beyond for your case.
