Slips, Trips And Falls Accidents in Public Places

Slipping accidents are some of the most common types of accidents that occur in public places. They usually occur due to slippery and wet flooring, food spillages or loose products on the floor.

Accidents at public events

While these events can be enjoyable, accidents at public events can easily arise due to poor crowd management, unsafe equipment and structural issues.

Due to the varying size and nature of public events, the level of personal risk can vary. Accidents at events such as music festivals are often the source of media attention, but injury can occur at a variety of other public events, including those listed below.

  • Sporting events
  • Marches, processions & demonstrations
  • Street parties
  • Religious events

Poor crowd management at these events can often lead to energized crowds becoming disorderly and in serious cases, stampedes can arise. Un-safe equipment like electrical cabling or weak structures such as stages, platforms, steps and barriers can cause a range of serious to minor injuries.

If you attended an event and were injured, you could have the right to claim compensation for your injuries. Our accident lawyers have the experience and knowledge in these types of accident claims to help you.

Safety at Public Events – your rights

It’s the responsibility of the event organiser to ensure your safety whilst at a public event – event organisers should be aware of possible risks and take measures to ensure the event is safe for you to attend. If an event organiser has potentially been negligent and put the safety of event attendees at risk, they may be liable in the case of an accident.


Communication was open and I knew what was happening every step of the way.

Steps to take if you have been injured in a public place

Following an accident in a public place, there are certain things you can do which will help your claim if you decide to make one.

  1. Make a note of the accident details as soon as you can. This information will be useful to refer to later when some details may have been forgotten.
  2. Keep a record of any medical treatment you receive for your injury, any prescriptions you have had to pay for or any transport you have used to get to appointments.
  3. If there are any witnesses to your accident, ask if they would be happy for you to take their contact details. They might be able to provide a witness statement which can be useful when pursuing a claim.
