Public Liability / Slips, Trips and Falls

Where you have suffered harm caused by an accident or incident, often in a public place, (other than in the context of an Employers’ Liability or Road Traffic Collision matter) we are able to bring a public liability claim on your behalf.

Common examples of Public Liability cases include slips, trips, and falls; injuries caused by defective products or equipment; injuries caused by negligent employees or contractors; injuries caused by animals; and injuries caused by criminal acts.

In such circumstances you may be entitled to claim not only for damages to compensate you for any physical or psychological injury, but also for loss of earnings, care and assistance or your handicap on the open labour market, otherwise known as a Smith v Manchester award.

We are able to secure medio-legal reports on your behalf in order to fully assess and report upon the extent of your injury and can arrange rehabilitation treatment (with no upfront cost to you) to ensure that you can return to pre-accident health as soon as possible.

Public liability claims can be complex and time-consuming, but they can be very important for victims of harm. Successful claims can result in significant levels of financial compensation.
