Locals and visitors alike are occasionally victims of accidents in shops, restaurants or other public places. Such accidents may consist of slips, falls or trips; public transport accidents or, on the odd occasion, infection with food poisoning.
Slip injuries and injuries by tripping are among the more common reported incidents. Slips and trips may result in injuries including cuts, bruises or sprains; broken limbs and even serious back or head injuries. Those responsible for shops, points of interest, etc, have a duty of care to protect members of the public and employees against accidental injuries. Should this duty of care be neglected, any person suffering a personal injury as a result may qualify for compensation.
