A slip and fall injury can happen anywhere. Wet floors, damaged footpaths, faulty playground equipment, exposed cables, and more can lead to an accident in a public place. So what do you do if you have been injured as a result of a slip and fall incident? Carew Lawyers has the answer.
What Is Considered a Public Place?
Public liability claims cover many places that you most likely frequent each week. They are not limited to public streets and footpaths. The following locations are also considered public places:
- Sports fields
- Shopping centres
Carew Lawyers understand the process and can help you determine what type of claim matches your accident and who should be paying you for the injury.
Determining Fault for a Slip and Fall Injury
There is a legal responsibility of building managers and business owners to ensure that their buildings and spaces are safe and maintained. They are at fault in situations where they:
- Failed to identify a hazard and repair it or prevent the public from accessing it
- Directly caused the hazard that led to the injury
Not all building owners are willing to take responsibility when an accident happens. That means you may need to commence a personal injury claim to get them to compensate you for medical expenses. Carew Lawyers can guide you through every step in the process. We provide professional legal services so you can focus on recovery while we work on getting the money you need to get back on your feet after a fall.
