These people or companies owe a duty to take reasonable care to ensure that members of the public in that area are reasonably safe.

If they breach that duty and a person is injured, that person may have a claim for damages. A lot of public liability claims are 'slips, trips and falls', but the potential circumstances in which a public liability claim can arise are many and varied. 

These can include:

  • A claim against a Highway Authority for failure to maintain the pavement, causing a person to trip
  • A claim against a supermarket for failing to clear up a spillage, on which a person then slips
  • A claim against the owner of the building for failing to provide adequate lighting or a handrail on a set of stairs, which causes a person to fall
  • A claim against the owner of a building site who allowed debris to fall from the site which then struck a person walking along the pavement
  • A claim against a school for failure to properly supervise pupils, which leads to injury

Time Limits

There are strict time limits for bringing a claim for personal injury. The time limit is three years from the date of the accident. We always advise clients to contact us as soon as they suspect they may have a claim to avoid the risk of being time-barred.


No win, no fee

In some cases we are able to fund a public liability compensation claim on a 'No Win, No Fee' or Conditional Fee Agreement, meaning there would be no financial risk to you. Read more on our Funding Options page.
