Public Place Accidents: What Are They and Why Should I Claim?

Millions of people across the UK go about their daily lives and experience no mishaps, but unfortunately for some, avoidable accidents in public places are still relatively common. Not only this, but in many cases, the injured person is not at fault. 

Accidents in public places can take many different forms and cause a number of different types of injuries. These injuries can be minor, but in some cases damages can be extremely serious and have a significant impact on a person’s daily life.

A public injury claim refers to the action you can take against local authorities, business owners, supermarkets, schools or any public place that holds a duty of care for people who visit their premises. These authorities are all bound by this duty, and must always ensure that any risk to the safety of the public is minimised. If these precautions have not been taken and someone suffers an injury in one of these duty-bound public places, the injured party could claim compensation.

So, if you have experienced an accident in public that would have been avoidable if certain precautions were taken, you are likely entitled to a form of compensation for your injuries. A personal injury solicitor at OH Parsons can help to ensure you win the rightful compensation for public accidents and damages.

Costs and Compensation: How Much Could You Win From Your Public Injury Claim?

As is always the case with personal injury claims, the exact amount of compensation you receive will depend on the nature of your injury and its impact on your life.

It’s also important to consider that your injury could cost you a good deal of money, most of which you will be able to claim back through compensation. For example, there may be medical bills, travel costs, and rehabilitation expenses. You may have also received reduced pay at your job while recovering from the injury. Such injuries can sometimes cause significant financial pressures that can make it difficult to pay bills and support your family.

All of the above factors will form an integral part of your claim, and it is on the basis of these aspects that the compensation amount is determined.

Common Types of Public Injury Claims

Personal injuries occur as a result of a number of reasons. Slips, trips and falls on uneven roads or pavements constitute one of the most common accidents, along with slips and trips on wet floors in shopping centres or shops. Common accidents also include:

  • Hot beverage spills in cafes and restaurants
  • Accidents on escalators or in lifts
  • Accidents due to faulty gym equipment
  • Injuries due to broken glass or other dangerous objects at parks or beaches


If you have suffered any such accident, even if you do not know who is responsible, then you should contact our expert personal injury solicitors who will advise you on whether you can make a claim.
