Accidents in a public place

Local Authorities have responsibility for the maintenance of highways and pavements. Parks and play areas will often be maintained by the Local Authority.

Some examples of such accident locations are:

  • Roads and pavements
  • Walkways and pathways
  • Parks and public gardens
  • Public play and picnic areas

However, there are other public areas which are the responsibility of companies and other types of authorities. 

Other common examples of locations where accidents in a public place can happen:

  • Shops
  • Supermarkets
  • Shopping Centres
  • Car parks
  • Retail parks
  • Sports Stadiums
  • Hospitals
  • Offices
  • Entertainment venues
  • Restaurants

We have a great deal of experience in dealing with these types of claims.  Some examples of personal injury claims arising out of these types of accidents:

  • Slips on wet or slippery floors due to spillages, improper cleaning or lack of matting.
  • Slips or trips as a result of defective/uneven pavements or flooring.
  • Slips or trips in a car park due to lack of gritting or defective/uneven surfaces or potholes.
