Anyone who owns, or occupies, land or property has a responsibility to lawful visitors (and sometimes even to trespassers) to ensure their safety. It is this duty that encourages property owners to insure against public liability claims.

If you have been injured on land or property due to a property defect, such as a poorly maintained surface or poor lighting, you may have a claim.

Some examples of where we have successfully pursued a claim for a client include:

  • a supermarket staff member dropped yoghurt on the floor of the store and failed to clean it up causing our client to slip and injure their back;
  • a company covered a hole in a car park with plywood and then tarmacked over it. It gave way and a car fell into the hole causing injury to its occupants;
  • a firm left an iron bar across an access way, which a visitor fell over leading to a hand injury.

Our Personal Injury team are vastly experienced in acting in public liability claims and can support you through the process involved.

How we can help

We want to work with you to achieve the best possible outcome for your claim.

We understand you will want to know how we can assist, so we offer a free of charge no obligation first meeting or chat, which we follow up with a full letter of advice. If you are in any doubt as to whether you have a claim, please do contact us, again completely without obligation.

We are also able to discuss how you can cover the cost of a claim, including through a ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement.
