At fault

For your claim to be successful, it will need to be proven that someone else was at fault for your injuries. For example, if you slip on a wet surface in a supermarket, there will only be a liability on the part of the supermarket if there was no sign. If there was a sign it would be assumed that a reasonable person would not walk there, or would take more care.

In relation to a claim against a local authority following a trip on a paving slab or potholer, for the claim to be successful it would need to be proven that the stone was sticking up by an inch or the hole was the same depth.

If for example, a floor is wet, or a paving stone dangerously uneven, there will only be a liability if those circumstances have existed for a period of time beyond which warning signs should have been placed, or the problem rectified.
