Oakwood can offer you the best public place and work accident compensation advice from our solicitors in London. We helped Mr S claim compensation after he severely fractured his ankle.
Mr S had gone to visit a relative. The decking outside the relatives house was very mossy. The weather conditions were wet and this combined with the moss already on the decking posed a very dangerous slipping hazard.
Mr S slipped on the wet mossy decking and suffered a serious fracture to his ankle. Mr S had not been warned about the decking and the hazard had not been cordoned off. Thankfully as the accident was not his fault Mr S was able to make a case for compensation.
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.
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.
