If you have suffered personal injury following a fall you may wish to know in what circumstances a claim for compensation can be made.
This advice generally covers the following:
Roads and pavements – Usually the responsibility of the local Council who have a duty to maintain the areas to a reasonable standard. If you are injured on a poorly maintained road or pavement then you may have a compensation claim. This cannot be taken to extremes but generally it is said that were a defect protrudes or indents by more than 1 inch then a claim may be possible subject to “inspection” records and maintenance checks.
Owners of premises – shops, supermarkets, restaurants etc. have duty of care to ensure that customers facilities are safe. (Occupiers Liability Act 1957)
Public places including private homes – are the responsibility of the “occupier” of the premises who has a duty to take such care as is reasonable to ensure that any visitors or users are safe. Where this duty is breached – an accident claim may be possible and compensation the inevitable consequence.
