Oakwood were thrilled to be asked to help Mr A to make a claim; if you have suffered from a whiplash accident our specialist whiplash solicitors can help you get compensation.
Mr A from Brighton was 44 when his accident happened. He had been out doing his usual supermarket shop when he was suddenly struck by a stock trolley in the store. He was in pain and he was slightly shocked at how quickly the accident had occurred. He had not done anything for the accident to take place; it just happened out of the blue.
If you have been involved in an accident like Mr A and have sustained whiplash injuries as a result of your accident then if the accident was not your fault Oakwood can help.
Oakwood kept Mr A updated with the progress of his compensation claim. We understand the stress that being involved in an accident causes you and your family and alleviate the stress where we can.
If you suffered from a whiplash accident Oakwood can help you and your family by getting financial compensation for the injuries you have sustained.
The following are examples of common hazards or areas of neglect that may cause an accident in a public place:
? Defective trolleys in supermarkets; all equipment that is used by the public should be in good working order and maintained regularly. All equipment in a public place should be checked for faults and taken out of service.
? Negligence of staff in a place that is used by the public; for example if a member of staff has left a stock trolley in the path of one of the customers and it has caused them to trip over it.
? Slips due to substances on the floor that should have been marked with a sign cordoned off or cleaned up.
? Falling objects; this can happen when any products or materials have not been placed securely at height or on a shelf. Injury may occur if an object falls onto someone or into their path.
This list is not exhaustive; it is just a few examples of what we mean by negligence in a public place. If this is the sort of situation that you have ended up in through no fault of your own our solicitors will be pleased to take your claim for compensation.
People taking positive action by making a claim is we think the best thing for all of us. The more people who take companies to court or take further action after they have been injured should mean that the companies will sit up and take note when they are forced to pay out compensation for the damage which they have caused their customers or workers.
