Mrs M was shopping in a large department store at the time of her accident. Mrs M was stood next to a lift when a staff member flung open the store room door and it hit Mrs M full force in her back. As a result of the accident Mrs M suffered injuries to her back and neck.
Back and neck injuries can take anywhere from a few days to a few years to mend. Some injuries in which the back and neck are affected as a result may never heal and you may have difficulties with them for a lifetime.
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.
If something similar has affected you our rehabilitation claim specialist in London will be able to help you pursue compensation. If you have needed a period of rehabilitation no matter how long or short you can claim for the suffering you endured through this period.
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.
If you have needed a period of rehabilitation whether it has been a week or a year you may have suffered a financial loss as a result. An example of financial loss is being unable to work and losing wages or having to pay prescription charges for multiple prescriptions to help you recover.
