Whenever you enter a public building, you do so with the knowledge and peace of mind that the owners of that public building have responsibility for the safety of you and any family or friends you might be travelling with.
As a result, you expect that they will have trained their staff accordingly and ensured that all equipment is of a high standard to maintain your safety for as long as you remain in that environment.
Whatever the nature of the building in question, should you have an accident whilst on the premises and it be found that the accident was caused by the action or negligence of the building owner or their employees then you have a right under UK law to make a claim for compensation which you can do by contacting Salford ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors.
When you enter a building to take part in a physical activity, you must accept that whilst the building owner has some responsibility for your safety, you also have a similar amount. Therefore, if your conduct is inappropriate or dangerous it could be found that any accident you have could have been your own doing.
However, a 30 second test from Salford ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors could establish liability and the validity of your claim for compensation leaving you with the peace of mind to begin your claim. Thereafter, Accident Advice Helpline could manage every aspect of your claim.
Consider for example, if you were to go swimming. You would know your own abilities when it came to the water and the majority of people act accordingly. Weak swimmers may choose to stay in the shallow end of the pool or use life preservers such as floats or arm bands.
If, knowing that your abilities as a swimmer are not particularly strong, you still enter the deeper part of the pool and find yourself in difficulties then the responsibility lies with you rather than the pool owner.
However, if the pool owner were, through the medium of unacceptable or missing signage, to fail to notify a weak swimmer that they were about to enter a deeper part of the water and that swimmer were to find themselves in difficulty as a result, the liability for any injuries lies with the pool owner and their staff, and as a result Salford ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors could seek compensation on behalf of the victim.
The same rule could apply if the owner failed to warn people of unsafe areas for diving, slippery floor surfaces or particularly hot or cold water (for example, in showers or sink areas) and an accident occurred.
