Mrs O made a public liability case for compensation after suffering a work injury whilst carrying out her job; the claims experts at Michael Lewin managed to pursue her claim and settle a sizeable compensation amount on her behalf.
Mrs P made a case for public liability insurance even though her accident took place whilst she was working. The reason for this is because her employers were not responsible for her accident. The public place in which she was carrying out her duties were negligent in their duty to keep members of the public safe which is what let do Mrs O’s accident.
Mrs O works as a meter reader for a utility company. Mrs O had to go to a pub to read their meter. Mrs O went down the cellar steps in the pub the cellar steps were rotten. As a result of the rotten steps Mrs O fell down them into the cellar. Mrs O suffered injuries to her back. Michael Lewin Solicitors worked hard on behalf of Mrs O to claim the compensation she deserved from the pub for allowing her to use faulty and defective equipment.
The cellar steps were clearly a health and safety hazard and steps should have been taken to ensure that they were either mended or put out of use.

If this duty is being breached either by the negligence of the business or its members of staff then an accident could occur. If this has happened to you you should seek compensation if you have sustained any injuries as a result.
Any accident in a public place claim will be dealt with by the insurance company that has provided them with public liability cover; more often than not these claims are settled out of court and the compensation is paid quickly directly from the insurers.
