Michael Lewin Solicitors are experts in the field of claiming public places and work accidents compensation in London. We helped Mr D pursue a claim after he was seriously injured in a public place.
Mr P was injured as he was leaving a takeaway shop. He exited the takeaway via the stairs outside. A soaking wet carpet had been left covering the stairs which was an extreme slipping hazard. Mr D slipped on the carpet that had been left lying over the steps and seriously injured his ankle.
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. Following his accident Michael Lewin’s expert public place and work accidents solicitors pursued Mr D’s case for compensation in London. 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.
