Miss R came to Michael Lewin’s expert accident claims advice lawyers when she suffered injuries as a direct result of public liability. She was given a pay-out of over £1500.00.
Miss R from Stalham in Norfolk was 24 when her accident in a public place occurred. Our client was going down a flight stairs in a block of flats when she lost her footing and fell down 6 steps. There had been no lighting working in the stairwell at the time of our client’s accident. She was awarded £1572.20 in compensation as financial remuneration for the injuries she suffered after her accident.
Every occupier of land or buildings has a duty of care to the general public who visit them. It can be a home shop office train bus park or factory. Public liability is when someone hurts themselves because a third party has neglected this duty.

Everybody’s circumstances are different. There is no set amount of compensation for each type of accident in a public place. The amount of compensation you receive following your accident will depend on multiple factors the most common of which are:
? The nature and severity of the injuries you have suffered; you are more likely to get a higher rate of compensation for injuries such as broken bones and scarring than you are for bruising and soft tissue damage.
? The amount you earn; the more you earn the more you have lost out on. Therefore if you are in a higher paid job you will be entitled to higher rate of compensation to reimburse you for your loss of earnings.
? The amount of time you have spent rehabilitating; the longer you have had to have of work the more earnings you will have lost out on therefore compensation for loss of earnings will be higher. If you have had to spend a long time recovering from an accident and you have been suffering during that time you may get a higher rate of compensation for the prolonged period of suffering.
