make a claim?
If you have been injured in a slip, trip or fall at a place outside your home due to negligent behaviour of the owner or occupier, you may be eligible for compensation. Most slip, trip and fall accidents happen in public places, such as shopping centres, footpaths, supermarkets, public transport, and business centres but they can also occur at private residences such as a friend’s house or rental property. The owners of these places have a duty of care to make sure the area is safe including proper lighting on walkways and mitigating uneven or slippery surfaces. These sorts of claims fall under a ‘Public Liability claim.’ Back, neck and hip injuries are the most common types of claims, however public liability law covers all sorts of disabilities.
