Occupiers of publicly used premises have a duty to take reasonable care to ensure the safety of the public, including keeping the walking areas clean, free of obstruction and safe for people to use.
If you suffer an injury in a public place such as a pub, restaurant, club or bar, and it wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.
What can I claim?
You may be able to claim:
- General damages: these cover physical pain and suffering, but can also include emotional pain such as depression which is a result of the injury.
- Special damages: these cover things such as loss of earnings and out of pocket expenses, including medical expenses.
The amount of compensation you’ll win will depend on the severity of your injuries and the extent of your losses.
