Accidents in a Public Place

All manner of accidents occur in public places. Whilst perhaps the most common are trips, slips and falls, accidents can take place in a variety of different ways. Owners of property have a legal duty to maintain the safety of lawful visitors to their property and if an accident could have been avoided you might be entitled to damages as a result.

Most property is covered by public liability insurance meaning most claims are directed towards an insurance company rather than the individual property owner.

Public property such as a footpath or road is usually maintained by the Local Authority and any accident arising as a result of defects are made against the council. The Local Authority has a statutory duty to maintain and upkeep public roads and footpaths.
