Not everyone knows that a whiplash accident claim can relate to a slip trip or fall; lawyers at Michael Lewin Solicitors specialise in all areas of personal injury law in the UK and they were delighted to advise Mrs H after she suffered a fall in a shop.
Mrs H fell and injured herself when she slipped on a spillage in a shop. Under the Occupier Liability Act she was entitled to make a personal injury claim. This legislation means that the owner of the shop had a duty of care to Mrs H as a customer when she was using the premises.
Most premises whether it is a shop or any type of business that welcomes the general public will have a system in place which shows evidence of regular inspections and maintenance. In the case of a shop or supermarket this will incorporate regular checking of aisles and walkways to ensure that anywhere the general public walk is clear of trip and slip hazards. This system would allow any spillages to be spotted and cleaned up quickly to avoid accidents like Mrs H’s.
Anyone who has suffered a slip trip or fall either at work or in a public place can be guaranteed professional and compassionate advice from Michael Lewin Solicitors; if you are unsure if you are suffering from whiplash injuries following an accident you can have your claim assessed by the personal injury lawyers who will give you expert advice regarding your claim in the UK.
Whiplash injuries can be sustained during a slip trip or fall due to the motion of your head jerking suddenly backwards and then forwards on to your chest. This is exactly the motion someone will experience if their car is rear ended but a sudden fall can have the same effect.
