Accidents in public areas

Anyone who is responsible for running, managing or maintaining a public area such as a shop or a supermarket, hospital, school, sports facility, office, public building, playground or park, has a legal obligation to ensure that visitors will be reasonably safe in using their premises.

Accidents can occur as a result of slipping on a spillage, tripping over an object or something falling on to you. If you have sustained an injury as a result of a defect on a pavement or highway, the local council may have breached its obligation to you under the Highways Act 1980. You may have tripped over a raised paving slab, stepped into a pothole or fallen because there was a missing drain cover.
