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. Mrs G sought the help of a Michael Lewin accident claims advice lawyer in London and we pursued compensation on her behalf.
Owners of any establishment that is regularly visited by the public have a duty under the Occupiers Liability Act 1957 to ensure that their premises are safe for the public to use. If the owners of the premises have failed in their duty to keep it safe and you have been injured as a result you may be entitled to compensation.
A duty of care is a much used legal term which comes into play when a company or organisation does something which could be reasonably expected to cause another person harm either intentionally or through neglect. This harm could be either a physical injury the most common type we see here or it could be a mental injury or the financial consequences of an accident could be harmful to the individual and his or her family. In a workplace an employer must provide a minimum of reasonable care towards all its employees. If this duty of care is neglected and an accident subsequently occurs employees are further covered by being able to take their employer to court to get financial compensation for any harm caused by the employer’s negligence or non-adherence to their duty of care.
There are many advantages to you making a claim not just compensation for yourself but the place where you have been injured may bring about changes that will protect anyone else from coming to harm in the future.
