If you’ve been hurt due to someone else’s negligence in a public or private space, you may deserve compensation through a public liability claim. These claims cover various scenarios, such as slips, trips, falls, animal incidents, product faults, and more.
Who Qualifies for Compensation?
To succeed in a public liability claim, you need to prove negligence—showing that the responsible party breached their duty of care. It’s not just about the injury; it’s about establishing negligence. Consulting a public liability lawyer early is key.
What Can You Claim?
If negligence is proven, you could claim for pain and suffering, loss of income, medical expenses, and more. The specifics depend on your situation.
Who Pays for Claims?
Identifying the responsible party is crucial. Most have public liability insurance, and investigations may be needed. If there’s no insurance, the claim goes directly to the responsible party.
Notify the at-fault party within six months and initiate legal proceedings within three years if needed.
