Often people are injured as a result of walking or moving about in areas where there is public access. These include playgrounds, schools, shopping centres, common walkways in buildings and when going to outdoor events such as concerts or indoor events at the Opera and movies where they fall over causing significant injuries to the neck, back, legs and arms.
Often the fall is a result of poor lighting, slippery and unsafe substances left on the walkway and the use by the owner of the building and/or person such as a cleaner or business owner that maintains public place whereby unsafe building materials are used in the construction of the public place.
Such items might be highly slippery tiles that do not have sufficient friction to stop people from falling over or areas which are highly used and the surface of the material upon which people walk and move about becomes damaged and highly dangerous.
