Accidents in community centres
There are many benefits to using local centres and community centres. As well as housing libraries and educational classes, there are meeting rooms, functions and rooms to hire and with so many community centres available, there are many to take advantage of.
However, with so much going on inside local community centres, there is also a lot of potential for things to go wrong. Just as is the case with any building which is open to the public, accidents can happen inside community centres quite easily.
In the case of many accidents there is nobody to blame. These are simply unfortunate circumstances which nobody could have seen or predicted. However, in other cases, it is the behaviour, recklessness, carelessness or lack of action by another person which is directly responsible for the accident and any injuries which happen as a result.
If you or a member of your family have been injured at a community centre as the result of an accident which you did not cause then you have the right to make a compensation claim in Vazon Bay.
Because of the huge number of activities which take place within community centres, it can be difficult to consider all of the possible accidents which could happen. However with a typical centre hosting social, sporting and educational events as well as private functions, any of the following could easily happen:
- Slipping, tripping or falling in corridors or rooms where hazards are in place or spillages have occurred
- Falls on steps or stairs
- Crushing injuries from heavy doors or equipment
- Cuts and/or bruises from dangerous, sharp or uneven surfaces
- Inadequate supervision from staff during social or sporting events
- Inadequate signs or practices regarding waste, security or public safety
Many community centres are owned by councils or local authorities, whilst some are owned by private enterprises but remain open to the public. However a community centre is owned, if a building is open to the public then the owner or management team of that building has a duty of care to the people within the centre. This duty of care is a legal obligation which means that the staff and management of the centre will take any and all reasonable care to guard the safety of the public. If they should fail in this duty of care and an accident which injures a member of the public is the result then that person has the right to make a compensation claim in Vazon Bay.
