    Hurt in a public place in Lincoln


    Have you been hurt in a public place in Lincoln?

    When it comes to having an accident in a public place for the vast majority of Lincoln personal injury claims the fault lies with the owner of the property in which the accident occurred. Of course facts differ from case to case, but generally speaking such accidents could easily have been avoided if the appropriate steps had been taken by the owner in the first place.

    Such steps can include making sure that the premises in themselves are well maintained and kept free from hazard. In turn this may mean that suitable training is offered to all members of staff who work at the premises.

    For example, staff need to be told what to do if there is a spillage on the property. It is important that they are aware whose responsibility it is to clean up spillages, or how to report them or make the public aware so as to avoid the chance of injury. By following the simple procedures laid out by the owner of the property, or an employer, then Lincoln personal injury claims can be easily avoided.

    Equally, staff need to have the appropriate training to ensure that they fully understand the importance of keeping an area clean and free from clutter. If staff are trained to be aware of the potential dangers caused by leaving boxes or other rubbish lying around a footpath area then they are less likely to litter in this manner. As a result a member of the public is likely to have an accident and again Lincoln personal injury claims can be avoided.
