Claiming compensation for an accident in a public building

Whether you are eating a meal at a restaurant, purchasing your shopping from a supermarket or buying a new outfit from a clothes store, it is important that appropriate health and safety regulations are in place to prevent an injury. So if you have tripped on a wet surface, suffered from food poisoning or had an object fall on you, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation to recover any damages you have incurred. Because public places are very busy it is important that these regulations are upheld, so if you believe you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.

Where might I look to make a claim?

Public buildings such as restaurants and supermarkets have the potential to cause you an injury and if this is the case then you could claim for compensation. Some common examples of where a claim could be made include:

·         Claims if you have tripped on a wet surface

·         Claims if you have been injured by a falling object

·         Claims if there is no appropriate warnings in place

·         Claims if you are injured from a piece of machinery

·         Claims against a foreign item in your food.

Who could be at fault here?

When it comes to making a claim against negligence then you must be able to prove that the guilty party had some involvement in your incident, otherwise your chances of success won’t be good when it comes to court. If you have sustained an injury while in a public building then there are a number of people you may wish to make a claim against, whether it is a store manager, an employee or even a member of the public whose actions have resulted in your injury. If you believe their actions have put your health at risk then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence, so making a claim against them for negligence could be your best option.
