Just outside the city of Glasgow, you’ll find a town called Milngavie. It sits in the area of East Dunbartonshire, with good commuter links into the city and to other areas as well. As such it is very popular with commuters, not to mention retired people. The last census found the population sitting just shy of 13,000 people. While there are injury lawyers in Milngavie, one would hope never to need them. However, you may be wondering why the need could arise in the first place.
Falls in public places
The term ‘public places’ covers a variety of locations. Basically speaking, it covers anywhere the public is allowed to be. This could include pavements and walkways, shopping centres, car parks and other similar locations. Some people do have the misfortune of falling over on some occasions in places such as these. Sometimes it may be because they haven’t been looking where they are going, or they simply trip over their own shoelaces if they are undone.
However, in some instances, they experience a fall and a subsequent injury when they haven’t done anything wrong to lead to it happening. For instance, if someone was to fall over because a set of steps was wobbly and had not been properly laid, they might well have cause to make a no win, no fee* claim to receive compensation for their injuries. For this to be the case, negligence has to be confirmed to have occurred.
