Oakwood are very aware of the devastating consequenses of a brain injury. Movement can be limited; problems can occur with vision taste or hearing. Memory impairement is another common side effect which unfortunately can be irrepearable. Even the ability to speak can be impaired or even lost. But everyday functions such as the ability to think and act may not be the only thing affected; the personality can also change.
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.
