    Hawarden No Win No Fee*


    Hawarden ‘no win, no fee*’ Solicitors

    Over the last century, buildings have been becoming increasingly taller and many architects take the idea that if you can’t spread out you should spread up as far as their ideas are concerned.

    In addition, there are regulations and laws meaning that businesses and building owners now have to make allowances for less able bodied people, whether they be staff, customers or the general public, to be able to move freely around these buildings.

    What this means is that there are more elevators than ever before in public buildings. This is fantastic news from the point of view of being able to reach upper floors more easily but it means that the scope for accidents is increased.

    If you have received injuries as the result of being trapped in an elevator, Hawarden no win no fee* solicitors can claim for compensation on your behalf.

    Love in an Elevator

    Whilst there is no doubt that elevators are extremely useful and have their role in our daily lives, they are somewhat polarising, in that whilst some love them, others despise in equal measure.

    Many people suffer from claustrophobia which is the fear of closed in spaces and being in a lift magnifies this fear. There are others who despise glass lifts where they are able to see all around them as this aggravates their fear of heights. Then there are those people who, whilst not having a specific phobia just simply dislike lifts: regardless of whether they’re working properly or not.

    However, when something goes wrong in a lift, whether the victim has a predisposed fear or not, the results can be catastrophic and in this situation, solicitors who offer Hawarden no win no fee* are there.

    There are numerous things which can go wrong with lifts, and for which Hawarden no win no fee* solicitors can be available to claim compensation:

    Trapped

    Whilst you might hope that it will never happen, the prospect of being trapped in a lift is a very real and significant problem. An electrical or mechanical fault, failure or a power cut could prevent the lift doors from opening as they should or could mean that the lift became stuck between floors.

    Emergency Stop

    Many lifts are fitted with a emergency stop function which means that if the lift is experiencing problems it will stop rather than risk the lives of the occupants. The problem is that the emergency stop could cause more problems than it solves.

    Crash

    A crash either at the top or bottom of the elevator shaft is probably the worst accident and the one which has the more potential to injure human life.
