Public Liability

Unfortunately, people slipping (or tripping) and falling is a fairly common occurrence on common property of residential and commercial premises.

 

Construction entails many risks to a builder by virtue of its occupation, control and/or ownership of the site. The risks include personal injury or death to persons and damage or destruction of property (including the contract works itself).

It is the responsibility of an owners corporation to ensure that common property is reasonably safe to users. This responsibility can be three dimensional and often with a degree of overlap.
