Accidents in Public Places

An accident in a public place typically refers to accidents that happen in places like public roads/footpaths/parks, public buildings, shops, airports, gyms, schools.   You could be injured as a result of slipping on a wet floor, tripping on an uneven footpath, struck by a falling object or being attacked by an animal etc.

If you sustain personal injuries as a result of an accident in a public place which was caused by the negligence of another then you may be entitled to claim compensation for your personal injuries against that negligent party or their insurers.
