Mr T was awarded over £1000.00 in wrist injury compensation after he sustained an injury that was not his fault; Michael Lewin Solicitors pursued compensation on behalf of Mr T and the claim was successful.
Mr T from Nottingham sustained a soft tissue injury to his wrist when he tried to open the door of his home. Council operatives had been and changed the locks on Mr T’s house when he was not at this house. Mr T had no idea when he returned home that his locks had been changed.
Mr T’s house was not a council house and the locks should not have been changed. When Mr T put his key in the lock he was surprised to find it didn?t work and writhed on it in an effort to make the key turn. As a result of Mr T writhing on the lock he sustained a soft tissue injury to his wrist.
Don?t be apprehensive about making a claim following an accident in a public place. Owners of premises and properties that are regularly visited by the public are required under the Occupiers Liability Act 1957 to take reasonable care to ensure their premises are safe. 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. The 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.

Everybody’s circumstances are different. There is no set amount of compensation for each type of accident in a public place. The amount of compensation you receive following your accident will depend on multiple factors the most common of which are:
? The nature and severity of the injuries you have suffered; you are more likely to get a higher rate of compensation for injuries such as broken bones and scarring than you are for bruising and soft tissue damage.
? The amount you earn; the more you earn the more you have lost out on. Therefore if you are in a higher paid job you will be entitled to higher rate of compensation to reimburse you for your loss of earnings.
? The amount of time you have spent rehabilitating; the longer you have had to have of work the more earnings you will have lost out on therefore compensation for loss of earnings will be higher. If you have had to spend a long time recovering from an accident and you have been suffering during that time you may get a higher rate of compensation for the prolonged period of suffering.
