If you need accident claim advice in London speak to Michael Lewin Solicitors. We helped Mrs W claim £1000.00 in compensation after she suffered an electric shock.
Mrs W was drying her hands in the lavatories of a public place when her accident happened. The hand dryer on the wall was defective and she suffered a small electric shock. Mrs W also ended up with a small burn on her fingertip.
As the accident was not her fault Mrs W had a valid claim for compensation. The faulty equipment was responsible for Mrs W’s accident and the person that provided the faulty equipment was liable to pay Mrs W’s compensation.
There are advantages to making a claim for compensation. If you make a claim following an accident in a public place the place in question may then change its practices in order to prevent a similar accident occurring. You don?t just have to claim compensation for the actual injury you have sustained; if you make a claim for compensation following an injury the public liability insurance of the place in question will pay for any physiotherapy or specialist treatment you require if they are found to be liable for the accident. You can also recover any loss of earnings and out of pocket expenses you may have incurred following an accident in a public place; you don?t just get compensation for loss of earnings if your accident has been at work. For more advice about claiming compensation speak to Michael Lewin Solicitors about your case.

? Defective trolleys in supermarkets; all equipment that is used by the public should be in good working order and maintained regularly. All equipment in a public place should be checked for faults and taken out of service.
? Negligence of staff in a place that is used by the public; for example if a member of staff has left a stock trolley in the path of one of the customers and it has caused them to trip over it.
? Slips due to substances on the floor that should have been marked with a sign cordoned off or cleaned up.
? Falling objects; this can happen when any products or materials have not been placed securely at height or on a shelf. Injury may occur if an object falls onto someone or into their path.
