Mr S in West Yorkshire went to Michael Lewin to make a claim after he suffered an accident in a public place; he came to us for compensation advice about his accident. He got £1750.00 in compensation.
Mr S from Huddersfield West Yorkshire was 55 when he slipped and fell on some water that leaked into the corner of the sports hall from a hole in the roof.
He landed awkwardly and suffered aches and pains for days after the accident. He struggled to get a good night’s sleep due to the pain his injuries caused him as he tried to sleep. He felt he deserved compensation as the hole in the sport’s centres roof should have been attended to before an accident occurred as a result of the disrepair.
Every occupier of land or buildings has a duty of care to the general public who visit them. It can be a home shop office train bus park or factory. Public liability is when someone hurts themselves because a third party has neglected this duty. If you have been involved in an accident in a public place; call Michael Lewin’s specialist solicitors to get compensation advice about your claim today.
The amount of compensation you receive following your accident will depend on multiple factors the most common of which are:
? The nature and severity of the injuries you have suffered; you are more likely to get a higher rate of compensation for injuries such as broken bones and scarring than you are for bruising and soft tissue damage.
? The amount you earn; the more you earn the more you have lost out on. Therefore if you are in a higher paid job you will be entitled to higher rate of compensation to reimburse you for your loss of earnings.
? The amount of time you have spent rehabilitating; the longer you have had to have of work the more earnings you will have lost out on therefore compensation for loss of earnings will be higher. If you have had to spend a long time recovering from an accident and you have been suffering during that time you may get a higher rate of compensation for the prolonged period of suffering.
Our fees come from the other side and so the full 100% of the compensation you are awarded comes directly to you with no fees for us to be taken off it.
