Unfortunately accidents can happen anywhere taking us by surprise. If you have been the victim of an accident or injury whilst on public property you may be eligible to pursue a claim for compensation.
Companies and local authorities have a legal duty to ensure their premises meet the required health and safety standards in order to minimise the risk of incidents occurring. Part of this legal duty also requires land owners to take out public liability insurance in the event someone was to sustain an injury whilst on their premises.
Whilst the majority of businesses comply with these regulations, a number fail to hit the mark; endangering the welfare and safety of public. Where it can be demonstrated that you or a loved one has sustained an injury due to the negligent actions of a land owner or business you may be entitled to compensation.
