    Accidents in a public place

    Many people wrongly believe that it is only possible to make claims for accidents which occur in a public place. This is completely untrue and you can make claims for accidents which happen not in public places, like within the workplace for example, but by far the most common accidents and injuries seen by our solicitor in West Byfleet do happen in a public place, such as:

    • Slips, trips or falls
    • Road traffic accidents
    • Industrial accidents

    Anywhere, be it a park, shopping area or a public building which is accessible by the public is classified as a public place. This could be a supermarket, library or a doctor’s surgery to name a few. These are places that must, by law, be safe for anyone who visits.

    To ensure the safety of members of the public there are numerous rules and regulations in place, such as good signage and notification, frequent safety inspections, emergency plans and good ventilation.

    Different areas will have different safety requirements such as outdoor working spaces, for example, construction sites, where all those within the site are required to be in full protective clothing – like hard hats, high visibility jackets and steel cap boots. Outdoor working areas also need to be segregated from the public, with the use of bollards, barriers and signs.

    Normally it is acts of negligence which cause accidents to the public, such as something simple being overlooked – liked the correct amount of barriers separating an outdoor job from traffic or pedestrians or inadequate warning signs indicating work in progress, potential hazards or to not enter. There is no real malice involved, although this has no bearing on the legitimacy of your claim for compensation through our solicitor in West Byfleet.
