35 year old Mrs W from Warrington contacted Michael Lewin Solicitors for legal advice concerning injuries she sustained after being struck by pallets in a supermarket; Michael Lewin are highly qualified to deal with claims relating to a head injury or any injuries sustained either at work or in a public place which entitle the victim to pursue a compensation claim against a third party in the UK.
Mrs W was injured when she was struck by pallets being moved by supermarket staff. In cases like Mrs W’s a public liability claim can be made if the victim is not at fault.
Public liability claims focus on civil wrongs. The victim as in the case of Mrs W can sue the owner or occupier based on negligence and/or damages. An owner or occupier can only escape liability if they can prove they exercised a duty of care. A duty of care basically means the standard by which a person would expect to be treated whilst in the care of another.
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.
The seriousness of an injury is irrelevant whether a person has suffered bruises and abrasions or a serious head injury whether the accident was at work or in a public place if a breach of duty of care has been established a compensation claim can be made by Michael Lewin Solicitors in the UK.
There are thousands of claims made by people who have sustained injuries from a falling object. Very often the injuries are sustained by the impact object itself the most common being head injuries. Sometimes the impact of the falling object will cause the person to trip or fall. Mr M approached Michael Lewin Solicitors after he was hit by a falling light fitting in a post office. Mr W suffered a broken nose and head injury when a display pack of bottles in a supermarket fell on him.
An accident could be caused by an item falling off a shelf or due to a poorly maintained building. If a victim has been injured through no fault of their own and third party liability can be proved then a personal injury claim can be made.
When a case is resolved clients receive 100% of the compensation. Michael Lewin will charge their legal fees directly to the third party.
