Preventing Blackpool ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claims
Many personal injury claim companies will spend a lot of time telling you how you can go about making a Blackpool ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claim. Of course, there is no arguing that this is vitally important information and for those who are unsure of their rights or the fact that they could make a Blackpool ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claim there is no doubt that it is very useful. However, here at Accident Advice Helpline, we are a personal injury law firm and we think it would be worthwhile if a bit more time was spent detailing how such Blackpool ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claims could be prevented – in other words, let’s try to make the world a little bit safer.
When it comes to Blackpool ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claims being made, and the ways that these can be prevented there are two main areas in which the information is likely to be most useful. Firstly, as most accidents occur within the work place we have some information designed for employers. Secondly, many accidents also occur within public places, so we have information for the people who run, own or manage establishments such as hotels, bars, restaurants and leisure centres.
Information for employers
As an employer, you have a duty of care to the people who work for you. This means making sure that the work environment is generally safe and free from hazards and often this can be achieved by having a robust housekeeping policy and schedule in place. Regular inspections of the property and any other associated external areas is essential to ensure that should there be any repairs needed for safety reasons that these are highlighted and dealt with quickly.
Equally, it is vital that the staff you have working for you are properly trained on how to do their jobs. Not only does this mean that they have the necessary qualifications to do what they are meant to do, but if things require additional information, that they have been provided with this. For example, if staff are required to move heavy items from one area to another it is worth ensuring they have attended an in-house manual handling course.
Information for owners/managers
The same duty of care extends to the owners or managers of public buildings and locations. Again, general maintenance is essential for internal and external areas as well as housekeeping. You will need to make sure that there is not rubbish or other debris lying around for members of the public to trip or slip over. Such accidents can easily cause injury and lead to Blackpool ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claims being made.
