Injured in a public place in Leven
Despite the continuous need for new homes and commercial buildings, many councils across the country are committed to keeping parks and green spaces open. Whilst many companies have attempted to purchase this type of land in order to build on, some councils are obligated to keep parks and recreational areas open to members of the public.
In order to cater for visitors, most parks have a range of facilities. Whilst some have cafes or sporting pitches, many simply have a small playground or an area designed for dog walkers. In fact, many parks have now installed outdoor gym equipment which can be used, free of charge, by members of the public.
Although this has proved to be extremely popular, it does take some upkeep. Whenever anyone exercises, there is a chance that they could suffer an injury and, if equipment is broken, this can increase the chance of someone getting hurt. Unlike at traditional gyms, there isn’t someone supervising the users of outdoor public gyms. This means that if a piece of equipment is broken or if someone is using it incorrectly, they cannot be warned. Due to this, council staff must perform regular checks to ensure that the equipment is in good working order and that it isn’t likely to cause someone harm.
If they fail to do this and someone is hurt whilst using the equipment, there is a chance that they could face personal injury compensation claims. If the victim can show that they weren’t responsible for their injury and it was caused by the faulty equipment, it’s likely that their claim will be successful.
In order to protect the equipment and prevent it from being vandalised, many councils installed CCTV on or near outdoor gyms. This means that your injury may have been caught on tape.
