If you, or a family member have been seriously injured in a public place, speak to our legal team now to get you the compensation and rehabilitation you need to get your life back on track.
People typically think of ‘slips and trips’ on pavements and claims brought against local councils when they think of these kinds of ‘public liability’ claims but in reality, many more scenarios are covered.
What kind of places have ‘public liability insurance’ ?
Local authorities and other public sector organisations such as local councils, schools and hospitals will pay compensation under their public liability insurance policy.
Remember, local authorities pay insurance specifically to cover them for paying out compensation in case people like you are seriously injured.
We help people who have been seriously injured in the massive variety of public spaces and private businesses across the UK including:
- Shops, supermarkets bars and restaurants
- Leisure centres, gyms and stadiums
- Theme parks, water parks and action sports-oriented activity centres
- Car parks, driveways and gardens
- Building sites and objects falling from height
- Paths, pavements, roads and public highways
- Events, festivals, live performances and concerts
Public liability claims can be complex and challenging and it is not always easy to identify who is at fault. This is why it is important to choose a lawyer you can trust who will keep you in the loop. Our lawyers are straight talking and easy-going professionals with a vast range of experiences dealing with all kinds of cases.
Is there a time limit on public liability claims?
Yes. You need to have started the legal process within three years of the injury occurring. If your family member was under 18 at the time of the injury the three-year time limit begins from the date of their 18th birthday.
There are a handful of exceptions to these time limits, so speak to one of our legal experts now to start the process and get your public liability claim resolved as soon as possible.
