Tripping & Slipping/Accidents in Public Places

Councils and Local Authorities are legally required to ensure that roads and pavements are safe to use. They similarly owe a duty to you when using premises that they own or control.

Supermarkets, shops and businesses owe a duty to keep you safe whilst you are visiting their premises.

If you are injured whilst going about your daily business, whether by tripping or slipping on a defect or object on the highway, whilst visiting the gym or a leisure centre you can pursue a claim against the council or business. If the injury was caused or contributed to by someone else we will happily assist you with an initial free consultation.
