In order for you to be able to make a claim for compensation following an injury you have sustained in an accident you have to be able to prove that it was the fault of a third party. The third party has to have been negligent in their efforts to keep their premises safe and free from hazards that have the potential to cause an accident that results in an injury.
If you have had a slip trip or fall in a public place the accidents claim specialists at Oakwood in Leeds can help you make a claim for compensation if you were injured as a result of that accident.
All occupiers of public places have a duty to keep the area that belongs to them and is frequented by members of the general public safe and hazard free. Hazards are present in many forms some of which are completely unnoticed until an accident happens. Some hazards however are very obvious and it is the negligence of the responsible person in dealing with the hazard that results in an innocent party sustaining an injury. For example an icy car park which is often the cause of an accident is a very obvious hazard; with forward planning by a designated health and safety executive this hazard can easily be resolved by putting down grit and warning signs. Some employers or owners of public places simply do not bother and that is when accidents happen.
Oakwood can assess your case for compensation and help you make a claim. There is no set amount of compensation a person will receive; the amount of compensation you are awarded is based on multiple factors such as the type of injury you have sustained and the amount of earnings you have lost as a result of the accident.
