Oakwood Solicitors have a number of years? experience in claiming compensation for people who have been injured through no fault of their own. We helped Mr H claim compensation when he was injured as an innocent shopper at the age of 61 years old. Mr h had been walking round a DIY shop when he suddenly and without warning fell from an unmarked platform. As a result of his accident Mr H suffered a very painful dislocated shoulder.
An alarming number of accidents in a public place take place in shops. Whether it is a supermarket a DIY shop or even a garden centre there are unmarked hazards all over. Some companies take great care to ensure that their premises have every hazard marked clearly and that all staff are trained to spot and eliminate hazards. Other companies do not take health and safety regulations so seriously and are an accident wait to happen. Sometimes an accident in a public place occurs simply because no one was aware that the actual item was a hazard until the accident happened.
Hopefully in making a claim for compensation the company will then eliminate the hazard to prevent similar accidents happening in the future.
