Mr E was awarded a staggering £5800.00 in public liability compensation thanks to the experienced experts at Michael Lewin Solicitors. Mr E had been walking in a superstore when he suddenly slipped on a pool of water. The water had been leaking in through the roof. There were no wet floor signs in place and no effort had been made to catch the water leaking from the roof.
The following are examples of common hazards or areas of neglect that may cause an accident in a public place:
? Defective trolleys in supermarkets; all equipment that is used by the public should be in good working order and maintained regularly. All equipment in a public place should be checked for faults and taken out of service.
? Negligence of staff in a place that is used by the public; for example if a member of staff has left a stock trolley in the path of one of the customers and it has caused them to trip over it.
? Slips due to substances on the floor that should have been marked with a sign cordoned off or cleaned up.
? Falling objects; this can happen when any products or materials have not been placed securely at height or on a shelf. Injury may occur if an object falls onto someone or into their path.
This list is not exhaustive; it is just a few examples of what we mean by negligence in a public place. Mr E decided to claim online for accident compensation in London. Michael Lewin Solicitors assessed Mr E’s case and proceeded to make a claim on his behalf. Mr E’s case was a success and compensation was awarded quickly.
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.

The solicitors at Michael Lewin hope the money that was awarded to Mr E helped him to come to terms with the accident. Our sympathetic solicitors understood how hard it must have been for Mr E to suffer injuries to the ligaments in his left leg and knee and were pleased to be able to help him.
