Accidents in Public
In every circumstance…
While probably leaving you red-faced, a trip or slip in a public place can also leave you with more significant injuries than bruised pride.
From uneven paving slabs in the street to spillages on a shop floor, if you have been injured as a result of a trip, slip or fall on the street, at work, in a shop or other premises, you may be entitled to compensation.
There is a legal duty for owners of such places to keep you safe while you are there, if neglect of this responsibility results in you being injured, then you may be able to claim compensation.
Along with compensation for the injuries you have sustained, you can also claim for any financial losses you have incurred due to the accident, including loss of earnings and travel expenses while attending GP and hospital appointments.
Accidents should be reported to the relevant person, i.e. store manager, at the time it happened and recorded in their accident book. Gathering evidence of the accident, such as taking photographs of defective paving slabs, is always a good idea.
