Overview

Members of the team have between them a wealth of experience in dealing with public liability claims. There is huge variety in the cases that members deal with in this area. Cases include:

  • Claims brought under the Highways Act 1980 for tripping and slipping accidents on the highway. Such accidents might be caused by poorly maintained footpaths or pavements or because of untreated ice and snow.
  • Claims arising from obstructions to the highways or pavements including for example: unlit skips or other items located on the highway at night or items left on the highway creating an obstruction or a tripping hazard.
  • Claims brought under the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957 or in negligence in respect of accidents at premises open to the public including parks, leisure centres, schools, supermarkets, shopping centres, restaurants, amusement parks etc.

Within this area cases range from the relatively straightforward to the extremely complex and high value. Members have experience of acting for both Claimants and Defendants in this area and bring to their cases a keen ability to see the strengths and weaknesses of the opposing case and are able to utilize this experience to great effect.

In all cases members are able to offer practical and pragmatic advice at all stages from pre-issue through to trial including advice on securing the requisite evidence, including disclosure from the opposing party, to allow claims to be brought to a successful conclusion.
