Injury lawyers can help you if you’ve been injured in a public place in Swansea
When you’re walking through a public establishment, you expect the flooring and outdoor areas to be properly maintained and safe for use. Unfortunately this doesn’t always happen, and innocent patrons can be left to suffer the consequences. In the winter months public buildings have a bigger duty than ever to ensure all the pathways are clear of snow, and that stairs and other areas are salted accordingly for ice. Likewise, once you’re indoors you expect the floors to have mats so that you can wipe your boots to mitigate the risk of slipping or tripping on hard floors, which can also lead to nasty injuries.
If you’ve had a slip, trip or fall in a public area due to a failure to take such precautions, you could be able to bring forth a public liability claim and seek the maximum amount possible in compensation. Buildings like banks, shopping centres, restaurants, hotels and others need to ensure the safety of their patrons and staff is the number one priority. If they have failed to ensure their building is safe for use, or neglected to post signage to indicate wet or slippery surfaces, you shouldn’t be left to suffer the consequences.
