51 year old Mr M from Gorleston contacted Michael Lewin Solicitors for legal advice concerning an injury she sustained in an accident at a post office; Michael Lewin are highly qualified to deal with claims relating to a head injury or any injury either at work or in a public place which entitles the victim to fight for compensation in the UK.

Mr M from the coastal town of Gorleston-on-sea in Norfolk sustained head injuries when he was struck by a falling light fitting in a post office. If defective equipment has caused an accident and injured anyone all possible causes will be investigated if a claim is made. Service records will be checked and reports of defects or problems will be examined. In cases like Mr M’s the owner of the property is liable for the accident if it is proved that they had not carried out the necessary health and safety checks of machinery and equipment. If negligence is proved the victim can make a public liability claim.

The same rules apply to employers who have a duty of care to their employees. For example Mr K from North Devon was awarded ?2000.00 in compensation when he was hit on the head because the wires and safety mechanisms on a refuse compartment failed.

The same rules apply to a head injury as to an injured finger basically any injury sustained either at work or in a public place as long as third party fault can be proved there is a genuine claim for compensation; Michael Lewin Solicitors have an excellent understanding of this very complicated area of the law which means their clients are getting the best service available in the UK.

Mr M made a claim for compensation with the support of Michael Lewin. Compensation is awarded for pain suffering and loss of amenity. Loss of amenity means things like not being able to perform your usual daily tasks for example if you are unable to continue with a hobby or a chosen career the compensation will account for how this affects you now and in the future. If your injuries are likely to take some time to heal or if you will never fully recover this will be counted into your compensation award.

Special damages which are taken into account are things like lost wages travelling expenses (eg for attending medical appointments) prescriptions private medical treatment the cost of repairing or replacing damaged property (including your car) the cost of private care or the equivalent value of care given by family members. This part of your claim can run into thousands.

When your case is resolved you will receive 100% of the compensation. You will not receive an invoice from Michael Lewin because they will charge their legal fees directly to the third party.
