Adverse Weather Conditions
We all know the jokes about how every other country manages to survive almost apocalyptic and Ice Age weather fronts, while we here in Britain baulk at the tiniest of snow flurries. For whatever reason we always seem completely unprepared for anything that requires more than a dab of De-Icer and a sprinkle of grit.
However, no matter how severe the weather may turn out to be it is vital that people are prepared – especially those who are in charge of buildings that other people may have access to. If proper precautions are not taken and someone is injured as a result then a Bedwas no win, no fee compensation claim may be made and thousands of pounds could be awarded to the injured party.
Slips on the ice
One of the biggest problems we often find when it comes to these situations is icy conditions. By their very nature, it means that the ground is going to become perilous and we suddenly find ourselves acting like Bambi as we skid our ways to our cars.
If, however, you slip over and you are on public property at the time, then you could have a Bedwas ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claim to be made against the owner of that property. For example, if you are on your way in to the local supermarket and, despite the fact that they are aware of the risks of ice, they do not grit the pathways that they are directly responsible for, and you fall over, then Accident Advice Helpline can help you make a Bedwas ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claim for any injuries you have sustained.
This is also true of work environments. Employers have a duty of care to the people who work for them, as well as anyone who may have legitimate access to the property, to ensure that it is safe for use. If they do not grit the required pathways, including the car parks that they expect people to use, then they could be liable for any accidents that occur.
Excess water can also bring with it its own problems, and these should be guarded against where possible. People will tread water in to buildings and if this is not mopped up, or if mats are not put down in an attempt to soak up the excess water then Bedwas ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claim may be made if people slip over.
It doesn’t take much to prevent an accident, and where possible all steps should be taken to do so.
