Many people feel embarrassed after slipping in public, and chalk it up to clumsiness, but if someone else was at fault and you were injured, you may be able to make an injury claim.
But is this always the case?
Hazards like wet floors, poor lighting, unsafe flooring, broken stairs or escalators can often cause people to slip or fall in public.
