Miss J suffered from an accident which caused whiplash injuries to her; she decided to use Michael Lewin Solicitors to make her claim for compensation.
Miss J from Portsmouth was 29 when her accident in a public place occurred. She had been out for a day out when some boxes fell on top of her. They fell on top of her neck and she sustained whiplash type injuries to her neck after the accident.
Our client suffered for several days after the accident with sharp pains on moving her head; her ability to drive suffered and she was advised to take pain relief medication to manage the pain she was suffering.
Michael Lewin are committed to achieving a settlement figure for you which you are happy with if the accident was not your fault. Public places should be kept clear of dangerous situations for the public.
If you have suffered from any type of whiplash accident which caused an injury and you would like help with claiming compensation come to our supportive staff at Michael Lewin.
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. If this is the sort of situation that you have ended up in through no fault of your own our solicitors will be pleased to take your claim for compensation.
People taking positive action by making a claim is we think the best thing for all of us. The more people who take companies to court or take further action after they have been injured should mean that the companies will sit up and take note when they are forced to pay out compensation for the damage which they have caused their customers or workers.
