The name South Derbyshire gives away the area’s location within Derbyshire itself. The government district takes up the southernmost reaches of the county and has a population reaching 98,000. Every now and then, someone experiences an incident that makes them wonder whether a South Derbyshire accident claim could potentially be made. Accidents don’t happen too often, but when they do, it is common to wonder who was at fault.
There are all kinds of locations where accidents can occur. Any public place could potentially be the scene of an accident, for example. If you were to trip over and fall in a pub or restaurant, for instance – a rarity, but it could potentially happen – you might then wonder how the accident came to occur.
Good health and safety standards
Most public venues such as restaurants, pubs and bars have excellent health and safety procedures in place. They all have to follow these regulations and it’s rare to come across a venue that doesn’t follow them as well as they should do.
That’s why it is rare for someone to be hurt in this situation where the injuries caused are due to negligence. The owners of these venues have a responsibility to look after the health and safety of those who attend their premises. Thus, the premises must be risk-assessed and made as safe as they can possibly be. All potential hazards should also be resolved so they no longer pose any risk at all. An accident could change a person’s life and may affect them for a long time to come, unless it can be prevented.
