Public liability claims can arise from accidents in public places. They may involve badly maintained floors or hazardous objects causing trips, slips and other accidents.
We can provide advice to insurance companies and local authorities as well as businesses that may be facing difficulties regarding insurance cover. We understand that there is a need to be proactive when facing claims of this nature and we therefore consider the needs of our clients when determining whether an early settlement should be negotiated rather than facing a contested trial.
In addition to providing legal advice and services once a claim has been presented, we can also offer our clients specific advice on potential public liability issues to avoid problems occurring in the first place, and to ensure that there are proper procedures and strategies in place.
