Accidents on Private Premises
Premises which experience regular visits from the public, such as shops, restaurants and bars, must legally follow health and safety guidelines to prevent customers suffering a slip or trip. Organisations are under a duty to ensure the reasonable safety of visitors when on their premises.
Accidents in Public Places
It is the duty of local authorities to take adequate precautions to ensure the pavements and roads in their area are free from tripping hazards.
If you have suffered an accident in a place open to the public, you can make a claim for compensation against the occupier’s public liability insurance.
We offer to handle your road traffic accident claim under a No Win No Fee agreement so there is no financial risk to you.
