Accidents in public places
When it comes to making an accident claim in Newcastle-under-Lyme for an incident that has occurred in a public place, then the law is on your side. Legally speaking the owners of the property, or location, in which you have had an accident are duty bound to ensure that the area is safe for all members of the public, visitors and employees.
This means that they have to make sure that the property is clean and free from debris, rubbish and hazards. This in turn means that they need to ensure that any staff on site are aware of the need to keep the area tidy, and that they have the time, training and resources available to them to enable them to do this. Failure on the employer’s side to ensure this could result in an accident occurring and an accident claim in Newcastle-under-Lyme being made against them.
Accidents in public places can take many forms, and providing that the accident in question was not your fault then there is a good chance that you will be able to make an accident claim in Newcastle-under-Lyme and retrieve financial compensation for your injuries. Some of the most common types of accidents that we deal with here at Accident Advice Helpline involving slipping, tripping or falling in public places.
This can be usually down to poor housekeeping, as mentioned above, which means that customers are able to trip over stock, coat hangers, hoover wires or other items left lying around that cause hazards. Wet floors that have not been suitably cleaned, or signed to advise of potential hazards, are another common cause for slipping accidents.
