Accidents on Private Properties

We have years of experience in making successful claims and understand the intricacies of this complicated area of law. At the start of your claim, you will be assigned a dedicated solicitor who will act on your behalf and ensure your interests are kept in mind throughout proceedings.

About accidents on private property

Accidents can take place in any private premises used by the public, and a claim for compensation can be brought against the businesses in charge of these properties if negligence is the cause. Examples of private properties include:

  • Banks

  • Hospitals

  • Schools

  • Pubs

  • Theme parks

In some cases, claims can be made for accidents that have happened in somebody’s home. To find out if you can make a claim, contact Aequitas Legal today.

Who is responsible?

If you have had an accident in a property that is used by the public, the business that occupies the building is obligated to have public liability insurance that covers the occupiers for any accidents. For accidents that happen on a privately owned property where the fault lies with the landowner, you are able to make a claim against them provided they have insurance. If they do not, our experienced team of solicitors can still help you make a claim.

Making a claim for compensation

To make a claim for an accident that has happened on private property, you need to make sure you can answer ‘yes’ to the following three questions:

  • Was your accident in the last three years?

  • Can those responsible for your accident be identified?

  • Have you reported the accident to the relevant authorities?

To read about the claims process, take a look at our guide to making a claim.

Why choose Aequitas Legal?

The solicitors at Aequitas Legal are dedicated to helping victims of negligence receive justice for the pain and suffering caused by an accident. Compensation is one of the ways we can help you.

You may have had to take time off work, reduced your hours or stopped working altogether, and this can place financial strain on you and your family. Making a claim can help you financially and ensure that the same thing does not happen to somebody else.

"Process was made simple"

My experience with Aequitas Legal was excellent overall. The process was made very simple and took up very little time on my part, particularly with use of the 'InCase' App and emails. My caseworker, Jane Hargreaves, was very approachable and friendly, and responded to queries promptly. I was expecting my case to take the best part of 6 months to resolve but was settled with my cheque in the post within just a few months. Very impressed at such a stress free and innovative experience and would recommend to others.
