Compensation for Accidents in Public Places
Accidents such as slips, trips and falls in public places can cause all kinds of injuries that impact your ability to get on with your day-to-day life.
Those responsible for public areas like councils, restaurant owners, shop owners and employers, have a duty of care to protect people from injuries like these. They should be following health and safety guidelines to prevent such accidents.
When these guidelines aren’t followed, the general public is put in danger of sustaining an avoidable injury.
