    Hart No Win No Fee


    Hart

    Whether it’s a hot summer, a warm spring or a cold winter, the weather is one of the universally accepted things we’ll never be able to control. For the most part in Britain we know to accept whatever we get and hope that for the most part it will be pleasant.

    As the winter draws near, we’re all preparing to slip on boots, coats, gloves, scarves and hats as well as turning up the heat in an effort to beat the rising cold.

    The cold weather often brings with it icy or snow covered mornings and it’s on these mornings that slips, trips and falls are more likely. In fact, Accident and Emergency departments often report rises in the number of injuries they see as the result of falling on slippery ground on particularly cold days.

    If you have suffered injuries from a trip slip or fall, it may be that you can access compensation by contacting Hart ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors.

    Ice Ice Baby

    In most cases, a slip or fall on ice or snow is the fault of the weather. It is purely an accident which cannot be helped and as far as Hart ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors can tell by way of their 30 second test, there is no case to answer.

    This is because compensation can only be awarded in these cases if Hart ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors can show that the accident which occurred was the result of the actions of a third party.

    The reason for this is down to the regulations of a variety of health and safety regulations.

    Whatever you do, whether you’re working, driving or walking, you have a duty of care to yourself and others. As part of this, you must ensure that you take all reasonable steps to ensure other people’s safety. If you fail in this duty then you could owe anyone who was hurt as a result compensation which they might access using Hart no win no fee practitioners to seek a claim for compensation on their behalf.

    The same duty of care is applied to the owners of businesses and buildings which are used or occupied by the public and as part of that, they must ensure that they maintain all parts of their building or premises to ensure they are safe and fit for purpose.

    On particularly wintry days when the ground may be slippery when wet, they should make steps to ensure this is either regularly dried to a high standard, correctly signposted so that members of the public know to avoid the area or both.

    Claiming Compensation through Hart ‘No Win, No Fee’ solicitors

    On wintry days, it is relatively easy to dampen floors by simply walking through them with wet feet. Should an accident occur and should Accident Advice Helpline then be able to prove that the situation was poorly managed the owner of the building may owe you compensation for the injuries you suffered.
