Are you eligible to claim?
If you are injured in a public or private place you may be able to sue the occupier for your injury and loss.
This is generally referred to as a public liability or occupier’s liability claim, and as an example may include slipping over at a shopping centre or having a product fall on you at a shop.
In most instances negotiations will occur with the occupier’s public liability insurer, and you will need to show that it was the occupier’s negligence which caused your injury. As a rule, public liability claims are disputed by the insurer from the outset which means that you will have to pay for your own treatment.
