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 privately owned property where 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.
