Michael Lewin Solicitors have years of experience giving accident in a public place and work accident compensation claim advice in London. We helped Mrs J claim compensation following her accident in a public place and we were very pleased to get her claim settled quickly.
Mrs J was badly injured at the age of 57 due to faulty equipment being provided in a public place. Mrs J was staying in a major chain hotel. Mrs J went down for breakfast in the hotel one morning and sat down at one of the tables. As Mrs J sat down on the chair it collapsed beneath her.
As a result of the faulty chair collapsing beneath her Mrs J suffered a terribly painful dislocated knee and an injury to her back. Thankfully Michael Lewin were on Mrs J’s side and we worked hard to secure her the compensation she deserved.
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.

There are advantages to making a claim for compensation. If you make a claim following an accident in a public place the place in question may then change its practices in order to prevent a similar accident occurring. You don?t just have to claim compensation for the actual injury you have sustained; if you make a claim for compensation following an injury the public liability insurance of the place in question will pay for any physiotherapy or specialist treatment you require if they are found to be liable for the accident. You can also recover any loss of earnings and out of pocket expenses you may have incurred following an accident in a public place; you don?t just get compensation for loss of earnings if your accident has been at work.
