A man in his sixties approached solicitors at Michael Lewin when he had an accident in a shop and wanted to claim compensation for his injuries; when the personal injury team had analysed the details of his accident they accepted his public liability claim for compensation in the UK.
If a member of the public is injured in an accident through no fault of their own they can make a public liability claim against the third party. It doesn?t matter if the accident has taken place in a shop office park on public transport or even in someone’s home. An owner or occupier of land or buildings has a duty of care to the general public and is responsible for any accidents which occur on their property if they proved to be as a result of negligence on their part.
Mr H from Stafford was 61 years old when he had his accident. He was hurt when he fell over a discarded box in a shop. Leaving obstacles like boxes lying around in unexpected places is a major trip hazard and one which can be so easily avoided. There is so much health and safety information and training available these days that there is no excuse for anyone to forget the possible consequences of leaving rubbish lying around. Ms L from Norwich is another one of Michael Lewin’s clients who was injured when she tripped over discarded boxes in a shop.
Mr H’s accident was not his fault but it did leave him with injuries which required medical treatment; his claim for compensation was supported by Michael Lewin’s personal injury team in the UK.
Michael Lewin accepted his claim on a no win no fee basis. With this arrangement Mr H did not have to pay anything at all. All the legal costs are covered by Michael Lewin Solicitors if the claim is unsuccessful or by the third party if the claim is successful. The no win no fee arrangement is the one in which you don’t pay anything ever!
The no win no fee arrangement is also known as the conditional fee arrangement. One of the huge benefits is that anyone who cannot afford legal fees can still make a claim if they have a genuine case. It really is as simple as it sounds and all of the compensation goes to the client.
Compensation is based upon how an injury may have affected you now and in the future. Compensation is also designed to put you back in to exactly the same financial position as you were before the accident. This means that costs such as prescriptions travelling expenses medical treatment loss of wages etc are also included in your compensation claim.
