Many of these accidents occur in public places for instance slipping in a supermarket, or even tripped over an uneven street pavement or fallen down some stairs. This is always someones responsibility to make sure that public places are safe.
If your accident was on a council owned property such as foot path or a rented council house then you may be able to make personal injury claim against the local authority if the accident was there fault. For example if you tripped and badly injured yourself on a badly maintained public footpath you would be able to claim, for instance if you slipped on an item that was lying around on a public footpath then you would not be able to claim.
If you tripped on a cable trailing on the floor in your office and injured yourself, then you would be able to make a personal injury claim against your employer.
