Revolving doors may be fashionable, and we all remember having fun playing in them as kids, but they also have the potential to be dangerous, so if you need revolving door injury advice, give us a call. At Accident Advice Helpline we deal with accidents of many different kinds and we have extensive experience in winning compensation for our clients. We’ll give you basic advice about your case free of charge, starting with letting you know whether it’s legally possible for you to make a claim. If it is, we’ll offer to connect you with one of our solicitors—solicitors who are so confident of their ability to win compensation cases that they don’t ask to be paid if they fail.
Suffering a revolving door accident
Revolving doors are fine for average people in average circumstances but they can be hazardous for disabled and older people, especially if other people are using them at the same time and forcing the pace. They can also present problems for anyone unlucky enough to lose their footing when several people are trying to push though them at once. Common revolving door injuries include strained muscles, crushed and bruised limbs, and head injuries from falling in a small space.
Do you have a claim?
You can only make a claim for a revolving door accident if you were treated by a doctor soon afterwards, so make this a priority even if you’ve had first aid from somebody else and you think you’ll get better without further help. In the case of head injuries you should always seek professional medical help anyway, because a scan may be necessary to check that there are no hidden problems, which can be serious.
All compensation cases for injuries of this type need to be made within three years unless the victim is a child, in which case a claim can be made on their behalf at any time before their 18th birthday, or directly by them during the three years after that.
Evidence for your claim
Any additional evidence that can be gathered in support of your claim will make it more likely to succeed. Your solicitor will try to get hold of any CCTV footage of your accident and you can help by trying to get contact details for any witnesses, whom your solicitor will then approach for statements. If other people have had accidents using the same door, and you can find out how to contact them, that can also be very helpful.Open Claim Calculator
If you get compensation for a revolving door injury it’s likely to consist of several parts. There will be money provided in compensation for your suffering, money to help with any medical or psychiatric support that you need but are unable to get on the NHS, and money to help you cope with any long-term problems the accident caused. You may also be able to get money to cover income you have lost if you had to take time off work, and if you save your receipts you can claim for expenses related to the case. With Accident Advice Helpline on your side you have an excellent chance of success.
