Brain injury expert compensation claim solicitors at Oakwood can help if your accident has resulted in a brain injury either for yourself or a loved one if the accident was not the fault of the claimant.
Mr S from Warrington had been about to get in his car when he slipped on ice which had been left on a car park. He sustained a head injury when he fell awkwardly.
Head injuries don?t always have to look serious to cause a brain injury. Any trauma to the skull can cause swelling internally; this swelling can then affect the ability of the sufferer to be able to taste smell hear or remember. A blow in the wrong place can also affect the personality of the person who has received the trauma; sadly sometimes these effects are permanent.
Every occupier of land or buildings has a duty of care to the general public who visit them. It can be a home shop office train bus park or factory. Public liability is when someone hurts themselves because a third party has neglected this duty.
If you can show that the third party which is the person or organisation responsible for maintaining the property or outside space has been negligent you can make a public liability claim. You may even be able to claim if you had an accident in a private home if the householder or landlord was responsible for your accident eg badly-lit steps or falling roof tile.
If you have been involved in an accident which caused a brain injury call Oakwood’s specialist team of compensation claim solicitors to find out how much compensation you could receive.
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.
