Accidents in a Public Place in more detail

An accident that occurs on property open to the public is known as a public liability claim. This includes accidents that happen in supermarkets, gyms, restaurants and parks. The most common types of Public Liability Claims are slips, trips or falls but there are, of course, other types of accidents that could happen in public places such as accidents caused by falling objects.

Examples of Public Liability Claims

  • Slipping on a spillage on a shop floor
  • Tripping on an uneven floor
  • Being struck by a falling object
  • Tripped over missing grids, manhole covers or potholes in the road
  • Other accidents in a public place

What should I do first?

  • Report the accident immediately
  • Take photographs of the relevant area
  • Get the contact details of any witnesses
