What types of personal injury claims can LawPlus help with?
Every personal injury claim is different, but the ones we can help you with will fall into one of the three categories below.
Occupier’s liability claims
Occupier’s liability claims cover accidents, injuries or illnesses resulting from incidents generally in locations not controlled by you or your employer.
Occupier’s liability covers various locations, including but not limited to:
- Business and commercial premises, including offices and shops
- Residential buildings
- Government and local authority buildings
- Public and commercial transport
If you have been injured at work, for example while working in a client’s premises or in another location not controlled by your employer, you would potentially have grounds for an occupier’s liability claim.
You do not have to have been at work to have grounds for a claim. Regardless of the circumstances, you may have grounds for an occupier’s liability claim if you suffer injury or illness due to another party’s actions or neglect.

Employer liability claims
Employer liability works similarly to occupier’s liability, but specifically covers accidents, injuries or illnesses resulting from incidents in premises controlled by your employer.
Your employer has a duty of care to ensure that you are able to go about your role in a safe working environment. If your employer fails to meet their obligations and take reasonable steps to keep you safe, and you subsequently suffer an accident, injury, or illness, you may have grounds for a claim.
Your employer’s obligations include:
- Implementing the Health and Safety at Work Act and any other necessary regulations
- Providing yourself and colleagues with the necessary training to be able to fulfil your role safely
- Providing protective equipment and clothing as required
- Ensuring any machinery and equipment used is safe
- Conducting risk assessments and performing actions to address and mitigate identified risks
- Taking action against colleagues where their actions would be deemed negligent or could lead to accidents or injury to others
If you have suffered an accident, injury, or illness at work due to your employer not fulfilling these obligations, you may be entitled to compensation.

Public liability claims
Public liability claims cover accidents, injuries or illnesses resulting from incidents in public places. These claims generally work the same as occupier’s liability claims, the difference being that your accident or injury in this case occurred in a public location rather than a private one.
But do not worry! Our personal injury specialists will advise you on which claim we will make on your behalf once we have reviewed your case.
Scenarios that may lead to you having grounds for a public liability claim include:
- Slips, trips, and falls caused by potholes, dangerous footpaths, defective pavements, or untreated surfaces in winter weather
- Injuries caused by objects falling from height or from sharp objects that should have been covered or removed
- Accidents caused by obstructions to roads or footpaths
- Accidents or injuries caused by trip hazards not properly highlighted and notified
Even if the responsible party does not have public liability insurance, we can still look to claim compensation directly from them on your behalf.

Road traffic accidents
Being involved in a road traffic accident (RTA) is a stressful, and often traumatic, experience. If you suffer an injury in an RTA, you could be living with both the physical and emotional consequences for the rest of your life.
If you find yourself in this situation, you may be entitled to compensation if another party, such as another driver or road user, or a local authority if road conditions contributed to your accident, was either negligent or at fault. You may also be able to claim even if you believe you may have been partly at fault for the accident that led to the injury .
You may be able to claim compensation if you were injured in a road accident as:
- A cyclist
- A pedestrian
- The driver of a motor vehicle
- A passenger in a motor vehicle, including a pillion riding motorcycle passenger
