Mr H came to Michael Lewin after he had had his accident in a public place. He gained over 1500 on behalf of Michael Lewins team in Leeds who specialise in accident injuries compensation.
Mr H was climbing the stairs in a public restaurant when he tripped and fell over a loose cable which was trailing on the stairs. As a result of the fall Mr H suffered bruising to his body. The cable should not have been trailing loosely on the stairs as this is a trip hazard increasing the risk of a customer or an employee tripping and injuring themselves.
Mr H received 1750.00 for his accident on behalf of Michael Lewin who have a decade of experience. We have dealt with many cases of slips trips and falls which can so easily be avoided with a little care and following the basic safety precautions.
Some basic guidelines:
Manage spillages: have a rota for cleaning during the day and if a spillage is spotted clean up immediately
Have a flooring which is not likely to increase the risk of slipping
Wear suitable footwear
Make sure you maintenance the building
Have effective training and supervision in place
In the past figures have shown that slip trip and fall incidents in the workplace have cost 40 workers their lives in one year. Also in a year over 15000 major injuries to workers have been caused by slips trips and falls 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.

There are advantages to making a claim for compensation. If you make a claim following an accident in a public place the place in which you were injured in may then change its practices in order to prevent a similar accident occurring therefore you are protecting the same thing happening again. You would be improving the work place/ public places safety regulations. You dont 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.
