Claiming for public liability means that you have been injured in a public area that is the responsibility of a certain company, person or council. This could be a supermarket, gym or even a car park. The maintenance of this property is the responsibility of the owner and they should ensure that the property is safe and will not cause harm for public use. And failure to uphold this maintenance is classed as negligence on their behalf. This could be slipping on a wet floor that has not been marked in a supermarket or falling over a trip hazard in the gym. You are entitled to claim compensation for this injury as it is the responsibility of someone else.
