Mr P from Sheffield got compensation of £2200.00 when he went to Michael Lewin to make a claim after his knee injury; if you have suffered from an injury at work or in a public place call our professional team at Michael Lewin.
Mr P was 78 when he was involved in an accident in a public place. He had been shopping in a supermarket when he was struck by a store employee who was driving an electric trolley. Our client fell when the trolley hit him. Our client fell to his knees with the force of the impact. He had severe bruising to both knees and being a pensioner he has struggled to put the incident out of his mind completely.
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 organisation responsible for maintaining the property or outside space has been negligent you can make a public liability claim.

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.
Mr P from South Yorkshire asked Michael Lewin to take his knee injury claim as he felt that the supermarket should have trained their staff better to avoid accidents such as his.
