Accidents in a Public Place
A public liability claim may arise in a wide variety of circumstances where a person suffers injury as a result of the failure of another person, government authority or business operator to take reasonable care for that person’s safety. It is necessary to be able to prove that the injury was caused as a result of the negligence of another although legislation has been passed to eliminate the need to prove fault in some circumstances and to restrict the availability of claims in negligence in others.
You may also be able to obtain compensation as a result of other incidents such as physical assault or dog attacks in a public place or for plane or boating accidents.
If you have suffered an injury as a result of an accident in a public place you may be able to make a claim for compensation for your injuries. Public liability law protects people in a wide range of circumstances, including those injured due to slips, trips and falls in shopping centres, local sporting clubs, schools, residential homes and public parks.
