Common Public Liability Accidents

Public liability, or slips, trips and falls as they are often described, are the most common causes of injury claims. In our 25-year experience, the most frequent types of public liability cases tend to include:

  • Slipping on a spillage in a supermarket or restaurant
  • Tripping on an uneven floor or pavement
  • Being struck by a falling object
  • Tripping over missing grids, manhole covers or potholes in the road.

There tends to be a certain stigma attached to personal injury claims nowadays and in particular claims for an injury sustained as from public liability. However the way we see it is if you have been genuinely injured as a result of a slip, trip or fall in a public place, perhaps even resulting in you being unable to work for a while, then why shouldn’t you be entitled to compensation?
