A man claimed compensation when his foot went through a gangway surface; the team at Oakwood Solicitors have the necessary skills for any claims relating to a foot leg or toe injury in the UK and won?t ask for any payment up front if the client is not at fault.
63 year old Mr C from London sustained his injuries when his foot went through a gangway surface which was defective. Any gangway surface in a public place is usually very busy and accessed by people of all ages. By law any such area should be safe and not contain any hazards which may cause injury to unsuspecting members of the public.
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. For more advice about claiming compensation speak to Oakwood Solicitors about your case.

People need to be aware that there are very strict laws in place which protect members of the public from injuries in a public place.
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.
