If you are involved in an accident on publically owned land (and are injured as a result) then you could be due a compensation payment.

A public liability claim typically involves an accident that has taken place on property open to the public. If you have been injured after a slip, fall or trip on a public footpath or pavement, then you may be entitled to some compensation. Read on below to find out how Manners Pimblett can help you with your claim.

At Manners Pimblett we are experts in public liability cases. In every case it is essential you can prove in a court of law that the defendant owed you a duty of care, and that they breached that duty of care and the injury you sustained was a direct result of this negligence.

What are the most common types of public liability cases?

As with all type of compensation claim, they can vary greatly. However patterns have emerged, and the most common types of public liability cases we have dealt with include:

What should I do if I have an accident on a public road or pavement?

The first and most import thing to do is take photographs and measuremets, before reporting it to the local authority. ou must also ensure that you document your case as much as possible.  If there were any witnesses to your accident, make sure you take their contact details, this could be crucial when the case comes to court. (We can assist you doing this.)

Another tip when documenting your accident is to try and emphasise scale in your photographs. If you have tricked over an unlevel paving stone for example, it can often be helpful to place a common object in the frame to give a sense of scale. A 50 pence coin usually works well in such incidences.

Finally, make sure you obtain an independent medical assessment of your injuries from a health professional. This can also often be a deal breaker when the case comes to court.
