Yes, depending on where the incident happened. If you have been injured on public property, private property or council property, it’s possible that you could have a right to claim compensation. These injuries could happen on the road, on pavements, in shops or public buildings (e.g. banks, pubs and supermarkets).
Cases for these types of claims depend on whether the accident took place as a result of actions, or negligence on the behalf of those responsible for the area where you had the accident.
Public liability claims are quite commonplace. However, they mainly occur as a result of poor highway maintenance, something which local councils are directly responsible for, as many allude to on their websites.
