When you’ve been injured in a public place such as a supermarket or playground and your injury was caused by the negligence of the party responsible for the public place, you may be able to seek compensation.
A claim for public liability compensation must be made by way of an official Notice of Claim being served on the party you believe to be at fault within nine months of the injury, or within one month of consulting a solicitor about your claim – whichever is first.
