Are you making a Hastings no win no fee compensation claim after slipping on a drain cover?
In order to ensure that drainage systems are safe yet accessible, most companies use various types of covers to ensure that their maintenance workers can access the drains when necessary but that members of the public aren’t in any danger. Whilst this can be effective, it doesn’t stop accidents from occurring all the time.
Unfortunately, manhole covers can be slippery and many people have fallen over as a result of walking across them. However, when grated drain covers are used, people can sustain far worse injuries. If, for example, you were to walk across a grated drain cover in a high heel, it’s possible that your heel could slip through the grates and you could sustain a painful injury.
Of course, when drain companies and maintenance workers have carried out work on a drainage system, they must ensure that they replace the covers properly. In most cases, they are secured so that members of the public can’t access them. If they were to forget to replace a cover, someone could potentially fall down the drain and get seriously hurt. In addition to this, if they were to forget to replace a drain cover on a drain situated in the road, it could be a danger to drivers and other road users. If a car were to drive over the open drain, it could cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle and a road traffic accident could occur as a result.
