Public liability claims can occur in different environments. From tripping on pavement, falling in a supermarket on a wet or slippery floor, fall in the workplace. All of these occurrences can lead to serious personal injury. It is important to note that in a public place, there is a duty of care on the persons responsible for this area to ensure that personal injury does not occur.
In some cases a slip, trip or fall can be attributed to the person who suffered the accident. However, in many other cases, the accident can be attributed to the negligence of the persons responsible for the upkeep of the area. These are the people with legal duty of care to protect people from injury.
