Most businesses have public liability insurance to cover any public liability claim that may be made against them for injuries or loss suffered on their business premises. An injured person may also be able to make a claim for injuries suffered in accidents which occur at privately owned premises such as houses. Most owners are insured for claims made against them through their home and contents insurance policies.

Public liability law requires that if a property owner becomes aware of a danger or hazard, they should take reasonable steps to minimize that danger or hazard to avoid exposing people who attend at the premises to the risk of injury. In cases where there is a danger or hazard due to the state of a property owner’s premises which could have been relatively easily and cheaply rectified and which results in an injury to someone who attends the premises, that property owner could be liable for damages and/or medical expenses to the person who suffered the injury.
