Mr D made a claim for public liability compensation following his accident in a public place. Mr D was in a fast food outlet when he decided to go to the lavatories. On his way there Mr D slipped on some tomato ketchup that was smeared all over the floor.
The following are examples of common hazards or areas of neglect that may cause an accident in a public place:
? Defective trolleys in supermarkets; all equipment that is used by the public should be in good working order and maintained regularly. All equipment in a public place should be checked for faults and taken out of service.
? Negligence of staff in a place that is used by the public; for example if a member of staff has left a stock trolley in the path of one of the customers and it has caused them to trip over it.
? Slips due to substances on the floor that should have been marked with a sign cordoned off or cleaned up.
? Falling objects; this can happen when any products or materials have not been placed securely at height or on a shelf. Injury may occur if an object falls onto someone or into their path.
This list is not exhaustive; it is just a few examples of what we mean by negligence in a public place. Mr D consulted a slip trip or fall compensation claim specialist following his accident in London as he suffered continuous back pain and bladder problems as a result.
Don?t be apprehensive about making a claim following an accident in a public place. Owners of premises and properties that are regularly visited by the public are required under the Occupiers Liability Act 1957 to take reasonable care to ensure their premises are safe. If this duty is being breached either by the negligence of the business or its members of staff then an accident could occur. If this has happened to you you should seek compensation if you have sustained any injuries as a result. The claim will be dealt with by the insurance company that has provided them with public liability cover; more often than not these claims are settled out of court and the compensation is paid quickly directly from the insurers.
