If you would like accident compensation advice in Leeds after you have had an accident in a public place then come to Michael Lewin today.
Figures have shown that slip trip and fall incidents in the workplace have cost 40 workers their lives in one year over 15000 major injuries and over 30000 workers have taken more than three days off work.
It is estimated that the cost to society each year for slips trips and falls is around £800 million. Health and Safety Executive figures show that slips and trips are the most common cause of major injuries in the work place in Great Britain.
There are basic rules which must be followed to reduce the risk of slips either at work or in a public place. Failure to follow these rules can lead to liability for an accident and injury to another person. Basic housekeeping rules are vital; keep water and contaminants away from walkways and if they do spill they should be cleaned up immediately.
If you have been unfortunate enough to have been involved in an accident which wasn?t your fault which has resulted in injuries then call us at Michael Lewin. We have a decade of experience and a team of compassionate highly qualified dedicated solicitors who can give you accident compensation advice in Leeds.
Mr S suffered an accident in a public place at the age of 31. He fell over an electric cable which was trailing loosely over the dance floor. The owner of the premises should not have had a loose trailing wire as this shows negligence and it increases the risk of accidents which the general public may have. Every occupier of land or buildings has a duty of care to the general public who visit them. Public liability is when someone hurts themselves because a third party has neglected this duty.
If your accident like Mr S’s was not your fault you too could be entitled to claim for compensation. By claiming for compensation you are not only helping yourself financially you are contributing towards protecting other people getting hurt in a similar situation: the place in question may then change its practices in order to prevent a similar accident occurring.
Any accident that has resulted in an injury either at work or in a public place could mean you are entitled to make a claim for compensation if the accident was not your fault.
