The most common cause of Public Liability claims are when clients trip over Uneven Pavements, fall in Potholes on public roads, going to the local Supermarket and Slipping over produce which was not cleaned up, Faulty Equipment in Playgrounds and Sports Centre. The most common incident is Slipping on Wet Surfaces in a public place.
WHAT YOU NEED TO PROVE?
In order for a successful claim you must show that there was an act of negligence and that the trip was the fault of someone else.
Trip claims can be based on imposing a duty on the highway authorities to maintain public highways. Show that there was an act of negligence as that the trip was created by an act of a known person such as a chip shop spilled oil on the pavement. Or on the basis of Occupiers Liability which enables to bring a claim because the occupier owes a duty of care to his visitors. The duty imposes that all visitors are reasonably safe in using the premises for the purpose for which they are invited or permitted. For example if your accident occurred at work, in a shop, on the road or pavement then we have to show that it occurred because of neglect on the part of your employer, the shop owner or the Council.
