Public and Products Liability Claim Incident for Not For Profit Community CentreNot for profit insurance risk

Council Worker versus Workcover Versus Community Centre

The claimant, who was employed by a council, alleged that she attended the Community Centre to perform ground maintenance during the course of her employment with the council. As she was crossing a grassy area to turn the sprinklers on at the site, her foot went down a large hole.

Even though the property was owned by the council, it was deemed that the lesser (the Community Centre), had a liability as occupier of the building. As such, the centre was found liable for a percentage of the total claim settlement. Not_for_profit_insurance_risk
