Claims in public establishments

The owners of establishments open to the public have the duty to maintain their facilities in optimal conditions of conservation, surveillance, and safety. It is very frequent to see accidents occurring in these types of establishments, due to poor maintenance or signaling conditions, such as damages caused by a spill of a product on the floor, a broken tile, slippery steps, unevenness, or unmarked protrusions, etc. And the most common places are supermarkets, restaurants, bars, playgrounds, gyms...

In all these situations, the injured party has the right to file a claim for damages suffered as a result of the accident, exercising the action of tort liability directly against the owner of the establishment where the accident occurred, against the person responsible for adopting the appropriate conservation, care and maintenance measures, and/or against the insurance company of the aforementioned parties.
