When Mr A slipped on the wet floor in the toilets of a hotel he sustained multiple injuries which prompted him to make a compensation claim; Mr A decided to claim damages for his wrist and head injuries so he contacted personal injury solicitors at Michael Lewin in Leeds who have a superb reputation for their legal skills and caring approach.
Mr A from Newcastle fell suddenly and quickly the impact causing a fractured wrist and a painful bang to the head. His wrist was extremely painful and swollen requiring prompt medical treatment to determine the seriousness of the injury. Falls often result in soft tissue damage or broken bones as a result of an outstretched hand.
Injuries involving broken bones or torn ligaments can result in quite a lengthy period of recovery. This frequently requires the victim to take time off work for rest as well as medical appointments. Injuries can also restrict the victim’s daily activities and they may not be able to work drive or cope with normal household chores for a while. These circumstances are taken into account when making a settlement. Michael Lewin accepted Mr A’s compensation claim for both his head and wrist injury on a no win no fee basis because he was not to blame for his accident; the team in Leeds charged their legal fees to the third party so Mr A didn?t have to pay a penny.
The no win no fee agreement does exactly what it promises. The client doesn?t have to pay anything win or lose. Mr A received all of his ?4560.00 settlement without any deductions.
There are basic rules which must be followed to reduce the risk of slips either at work or in a public place. Failure to follow these rules can lead to liability for an accident and injury to another person. Basic housekeeping rules are vital; keep water and contaminants away from walkways and if they do spill they should be cleaned up immediately.
Any employees such as cleaners who are exposed to wet floors should be provided with suitable footwear. Particular care and attention should be taken during the colder months when rain ice and snow increase the risk of wet floors.
If health and safety regulations have been neglected a compensation claim can be made for any injuries this has caused.
