Public liability claims
6.1 SLIP AND FALL MATTERS
Business and property owners have a legal responsibility and “duty of care” towards the public. If you’ve suffered an injury as a result of a hazard, negligence or breach of duty, our personal injury attorneys can help you make a public liability claim.Most companies or property owners are covered with liability insurance which is designed to pay compensation as well as legal costs which may arise through their negligent acts or omissions. This protection exists to compensate you if you’ve been injured. These are most frequently “slip and fall”, which, as the name would suggest, relate to injuries you may have sustained by slipping, tripping or falling. A defect on the walking surface, a slippery surface caused by weather conditions, a spill and the subsequent failure to rectify a potential hazard – all of these and more amounts to negligence, and can lead to public liability claims. Simpsons Personal Injury Lawyers have decades of experience helping clients find success in public liability claims that result from injuries sustained due to the negligence of a business or property owner. If you have a legitimate claim, our no win, no fee promise, means that you won’t pay a penny if your claim isn’t successful.
