When Mr I had an accident in a public place that wasn?t his fault and wanted compensation he benefitted from the sympathetic and professional advice from Michael Lewin Solicitors in the UK.

Mr I from Middlesborough was 48 years old when he sustained injuries following an accident in a public place. He tripped on some tarmac which had sunk and injured his hip and his elbow. The impact of his fall was painful causing multiple bruising and pain.

Owners of premises and properties that are regularly visited by the public are required under the Occupiers Liability Act 1957 to take reasonable care to ensure their premises are safe. If this duty is being breached either by the negligence of the business or its members of staff then an accident could occur. If this has happened to you you should seek compensation if you have sustained any injuries as a result. The claim will be dealt with by the insurance company that has provided them with public liability cover; more often than not these claims are settled out of court and the compensation is paid quickly directly from the insurers.

The injuries Mr I sustained during his accident had a significant impact on his ability to go about his day to day life which is also examined when negotiating compensation; the expert advice from his solicitors in the UK helped move his claim forward and ease the burden. The law is there to allow victims like Mr I to seek financial compensation when they have been injured in an accident which occurred as a result of another person’s negligence.

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 can show that the third party which is the person or organization responsible for maintaining the property or outside space has been negligent you can make a public liability claim.

You may even be able to claim if you had an accident in a private home if the householder or landlord was responsible for your accident e.g. badly-lit steps or falling roof tile. Michael Lewin’s clients receive 100% of the compensation. The no win no fee arrangement is the one in which you don’t pay anything ever! This is great news!
