Many of us enjoy visiting parks and community gardens when it gets a little warmer and the sun appears. If you’ve been injured after suffering a slip, trip or fall in a community garden, and you believe that you were not at fault, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim compensation.
Who is liable for an accident in a community garden?
If you visit a public place, such as a community garden, you have a right to feel safe. The person or authority in charge of maintaining the community garden should take the relevant steps to reduce the risk of accidents in a public place, such as slips and trips. If you’ve been injured in a public place and you believe your injuries resulted from negligence on the part of the authority that manages the garden, you may be able to claim public liability compensation.
It is important to note that not everyone who has a public place accident can make a compensation claim, whether in a community garden or any other public space. Your claim will only be approved if another party was liable for your injuries. If you slipped because you weren’t looking where you going, for example, you will be liable for your injuries, rather than a local authority.
