Accidents in a Public/Private Place
All property owners, whether their property is public or private, have a duty to keep their premises reasonably clean and safe, and many carry slip and fall insurance. This means that if you have been injured due to a hazardous condition by fault of the property owner or their employee, the property owner’s insurance may be responsible for paying for those injuries.
If you have tripped over something that should be there i.e a kerb, then it’s probably your fault. However, if you slip and fall on something that shouldn’t be there like a wet floor it may be someone else’s fault. Accidents in public places can happen anywhere from on
- in leisure playgrounds,
- in shops or restaurants,
- carparks etc,
The majority of accidents in public places in Ireland are the result of,
- Slip and fall on a wet floor.
- Trip on uneven paving.
- Having something fall on you.
- Being attacked by an animal such as a dog.
- Having an accident while on holiday.
