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.

"A star in the making"

I’d just like to give a very positive feedback to Ansa Rashid took on my case & finally got things moving. Before that I had Susan Mason who never answered my calls or emails & the case was ongoing still 3 years on. Ansa took over, got things moving & even through her busy day rang me mostly every week, sometimes on the phone an hour or so. I can not fault this woman she is amazing at her job. Very professional, caring, trustworthy & motivational. Plenty of times I wanted to to throw the towel in but she just wouldn’t let me give up. The case took 4 years in the end & even though we didn’t win I’d still recommend her to everyone. Thank you Ansa you are a star In the making

" ‘in-Case’ app makes things so simple"

I was involved in an accident which was not my fault, and was recommended to use Aequitas Legal. From the start, the whole journey with the team was both efficient, professional and sophisticated, with everyone essentially making the process so easy. Their ‘in-Case’ App made simple things like documents and letters so accessible, and meant I could access any import documents at anytime in seconds. I first spoke to Sucheet, who was the gentleman in charge of the company, who explained how everything would work, and pointed me in the direction of Connor, who would be my main liaison during the case. Together, they both ensured I was given the best advice, and seamlessly helped me through the case, which was concluded with a positive outcome! I could not recommend this company more, and will always be my go-to firm.

"Amazing determination"

I was amazed on how determined the team were in seeing my case through. If you are looking for a reliable, easy and transparent team to handle your case, here they are. I would like to thank Somia who I believe either led or coordinated my case for doing a fantastic job in both seeing the case through and communication.

"Professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply"

Highly recommend Aequitas who have recently dealt with my successful case. Special thanks to James Sloane who made the process much easier ; very professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply. Also very encouraging and supportive with regular updates as well as spot on with getting paperwork and documents organised.
For someone like myself who has never been involved in a legal process I'm delighted with how my case was handled with this company.
