What is Public Liability?

A public liability claim is a claim made for injuries received while on public property or in a public building. This can be a public space run by the local authority such as a school and local authority gym. Public liability also covers privately owned areas such as shops.

Some of the most common public liability claims include:

  • Slips, trips and falls in public places
  • Accidents in shopping centres
  • Accidents in shops
  • Accidents involving faulty goods
  • Accidents involving food poisoning
  • Accidents abroad
  • Sporting accidents
  • Local Authority claims

Personal injury claims can also be made against local authorities if they have been negligent in maintaining council property.

Typical claims against local authorities include:

  • Slips, trips or falls caused by unsafe or broken street paving
  • Injuries resulting from untreated ice or snow on footpaths
  • Injuries caused by untreated potholes

Use of Evidence in Claims

Evidence can play a crucial role in helping you received the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Having injuries checked over by a medical professional allows a detailed record to be made of the injuries. This can provide evidence on the severity of the injuries, the level of pain experienced and the estimated recovery time.

You may also wish to take a photograph of the public space that caused the injury. It can also be helpful to include a ruler in photos of potholes as this shows the depth of the pothole.

You should also try to secure the names and contact details of any witnesses to your accident. Witness testimonial can provide crucial evidence in support of your claim.
