What is a "public place"?


A “public place” covers most places managed by an organisation with a responsibility to provide a safe place.

This includes footpaths, rental properties, schools, community areas, shopping centres, theme parks, hotels and entertainment venues.

You don't necessarily have to be injured in a "public place" to be eligible for a public liability claim, however.
