If there were any witnesses or you took some photos of the accident scene and your injuries, these will be helpful.

What is a Public Liability Injury Claim?
All occupiers of land or buildings, whether it’s a shop, office, public transport, supermarket, park or Gymnasium, has a duty to care for visitors’ safety. Public liability is in place for when someone hurts themselves if another person or group has neglected their duty. If you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault in a public place, then you could be entitled to get compensation.
Car accident and motor vehicle accidents also often occur in public places.
The most obvious type of public liability claim is for a slip, trip or fall injury. These are usually caused by spillages that leave indoor floors slippery along with obstructions or badly kept paths and roads. To get public liability compensation, we’re required to prove that the organisation that owns or is responsible for maintaining the property or outside space was in fact negligent.
Who Would I Claim Against?
For example, you could make a public liability claim against a shop or supermarket if you slipped on water that was left on the floor. If your accident happened on a council-owned property, such as a footpath or school, then you will be able to make a public liability claim against the local authorities. However, if your injury occurred on public property while you were working, you can make a public liability claim against your employer.
You can even claim compensation under public liability regulations in some cases. For example, if an accident occurs in a private home, or you fell on dangerous or badly-lit stairs or were hit by a falling object, the homeowner or landlord needs to have insurance coverage for these types of accidental injuries.
