Thanks to Michael Lewin’s accident compensation claims solicitors Mrs H was able to make a claim for over £3000.00 in compensation in London. Mrs H was seriously injured at the age of 77 in an accident that was not her fault.
Mrs H made a public liability case against a major supermarket after consulting Michael Lewin Solicitors. Mrs H sought advice from our team of public liability experts who were only too happy to help poor Mrs H.
Mrs H was walking past a display in a supermarket when her injuries were sustained. Mrs H caught her ankle on things protruding from a display and was knocked to the ground. Mrs H sustained painful injuries to her ankle and knees.
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.
Michael Lewin’s accident compensation claim solicitors in London were able to secure £3300.00 in compensation on behalf of Mrs H. Harm is caused by either the action or sometimes the inaction of the employer. Some actions which could be considered harmful to employers could include an employer removing a safety guard for cutting equipment thus increasing the likelihood for an accident to occur. An inaction causing harm could be something as simple as an employer not replacing a mat by the entrance to the building and this causing a slip or trip. Another inaction which frequently occurs is employers not insisting that warning signs are in place when liquids are spilt on the floor.
If as an employee you feel that your employer has failed to either act or they have been negligent by an inaction which could reasonably have been predicted to cause an accident then you can take legal action to get compensation. Michael Lewin can provide detailed legal advice on the circumstances of your case.
Mrs H’s claim for compensation was a success as the accident had not been her fault. The supermarket had made no indication to customers that there were things protruding from the display therefor they were liable for the painful injuries that Mrs H sustained.
