If you have suffered injuries as a result of a slip, trip or fall, whether in a public place or on private property, you may be entitled to compensation if you can establish that your injuries were caused by the negligence of the owner and/or occupier of the premises.
Most owners and/or occupiers of premises will hold public liability insurance that provides for payment of compensation in such circumstances. This compensation may include payment for:
- Pain and suffering;
- Loss of income (both past and future);
- Care and assistance provided to you by family and/or friends; and
- Medical expenses (both past and future).
Strict time limits apply to such claims so you should seek advice as soon as possible. Contact our practitioners for a no-obligation initial consultation.
