Some accidents occur more commonly than others; however, no two accidents are the same and no two people will be affected the same way. If you’ve been in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation. Some of the most common accidents include slips trips and falls in Bigbury-in-Sea. There are several ways a person could fall victim, including:
- Trips on uneven or damaged pavement – local councils usually have public liability insurance to cover any claims;
- Falls from unstable or unguarded platforms – dependent on where these take place, falls are covered by either public or employers’ liability insurance; and
- Tripping over a hazard you can reasonably expect should not have been there, or falling afoul of a spillage that has not been cleaned up.
Who is responsible for slips trips and falls in Bigbury-on-Sea?
If an accident happens at work and you are not at fault, responsibility usually falls on your employer. By law, employers are required to have employers’ liability insurance so that any injury claim would be against the company that provides the insurance and not your employer. Accidents that occur in public places are covered by the local council’s public liability insurance.
