When a pensioner suffered a head injury at a superstore he contacted Michael Lewin Solicitors who can deal with claims for a brain injury at work or in a public place or any head injury that is the result of an accident that isn?t your fault; they ask for no payment up front to make a compensation claim in the UK.
Mr W from Cornwall was 75 years old at the time of the accident. He was in a superstore when suddenly a display pack of bottles fell on to his head causing him to sustain a head injury and broken nose.
There are very strict laws in place to protect anyone who suffers an injury in a public place following an accident that isn?t there fault. There are advantages to making a claim for compensation. If you make a claim following an accident in a public place the place in question may then change its practices in order to prevent a similar accident occurring. You don?t 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 if they are found to be liable for the accident. You can also recover any loss of earnings and out of pocket expenses you may have incurred following an accident in a public place; you don?t just get compensation for loss of earnings if your accident has been at work. For more advice about claiming compensation speak to Michael Lewin Solicitors about your case.
Michael Lewin are qualified to deal with cases relating to a brain injury or any head injuries that occur in a public or private place and they work very hard with every compensation claim in the UK to ensure their clients receive the maximum compensation. Mr W was one of thousands of clients who were awarded compensation for their injuries.
4 Everybody’s circumstances are different. There is no set amount of compensation for each type of accident in a public place. 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.
