Public Incident Compensation
“Elderly lady sues supermarket after suffering injury from a fall caused by a water spill in the frozen food section”.
This situation is so common as to have become a cliché. However, the statistics show that incidents in public places occur on a regular basis and cause short and long term problems for the victims.
The most common types of public place incidents occur in retail shops and supermarkets as a result of people slipping on spills, tripping over concealed objects or suffering a fall. Incidents also occur on badly maintained footpaths that are the responsibility of local councils and in public parks or cemeteries that have been poorly maintained.
When you suffer an injury in a public place you need to show the court that there has been a breach of duty of care owed to you. So if you fall in a supermarket because of a water spill you need to prove that a reasonable person in your position exercising reasonable care would have been injured and if you stumble on a badly maintained footpath you need to show that the local council owed you a duty of care to ensure that you would not suffer this injury.
If you have suffered an injury in a public place it is imperative that you seek expert legal advice as soon as possible. By acting straight away you increase your ability to gather strong evidence in support of your claim for compensation for your injury.
