How often do you trip in a public toilet? The answer for most people would be rarely, if ever. However there are times when people have suffered an unfortunate trip, and in cases like this they can suffer some kind of injury when they fall. That injury could have profound consequences for them in the future, especially if they suffer a broken bone that takes weeks to heal.
If you have tripped over in a public convenience, you should ask yourself why it happened. If you tripped over your shoelaces then it would be your fault and just ‘one of those things’. However if you tripped over an uneven or raised floor tile, or a mop bucket that had been left just inside the entrance so you couldn’t see it until you were right on top of it, you could make a good argument to get public toilet trip compensation.
The need for proof
It is very important to have proof to back up any case you wish to make for compensation of this kind. Negligence on the part of a third party is vital here, and if you have your phone or a camera with you, you may wish to take some pictures of the area where your accident occurred. This would mean taking photos of the raised tile, or the position where the mop bucket was, or anything else relevant to your case.
