Accidents in public places
If you have had a slip, trip or fall in a public place, then you may be able to claim personal injury compensation. A public place is defined as anywhere the general public has access to. This might be a zoo, museum, restaurant, cinema, library, shop and so on. Slips, trips and falls are the most commonly reported accident as they can occur anywhere. However there are other accidents that can befall you when you are in a public place.
If, for example, you catch the toe of your shoe in a threadbare piece of carpet, perhaps in a hotel lobby, and you break an arm or leg, or simply sprain your ankle, you may be able to claim compensation for your injury from the hotel owner.
Perhaps you were walking past a construction site and an object fell and hit you on the head, causing severe injuries. You could, in those circumstances claim personal injury compensation from the owners of the construction firm as they had not taken enough precautions to ensure safety standards were met. Perhaps they had not conducted a thorough risk assessment before work began.
