Accidents where you have slipped, tripped or fallen in a public building may not seem as though they would go down very well in court, and you may be a little uncomfortable with the idea of making a compensation claim for your injuries. However, there are scenarios in which it could easily be said that your accident was caused by the negligence of another person, as opposed to any fault of yours, and in this case compensation solicitors in Southsea should be able to make a successful claim on your behalf. Here are some situations where you could claim.
Wet floors are a very common reason for accident claims, and are surprisingly easy to claim for. If a floor is wet and there are no signs to warn you, you should be able to make a claim. If the floor has had something spilled on it and not cleaned up in a timely fashion, any accident you have because of it should offer you a case for compensation.
Lack of railings
If there are not railings where there should be in a public building, you may be able to claim compensation for any injuries you sustain from falling. This may include there being railings or banisters for staircases, railings which prevent you walking off of a sharp edge which you otherwise would not know was there and so on.
Injuries from low ceilings or hidden steps
Every building which has particularly low ceilings or hidden steps which could trip you up should signpost these so that you know they are there and are able to mind your head or avoid the step. If there is not a sign to help you, any accident you have may be considered the fault of management.
