Herefordshire ‘no win, no fee*’ claims
Whenever you enter a public building, you have the peace of mind of knowing that your health and safety whilst in that building is a legal matter. By this, it means that the owners of the building together with the managers and all staff have a legal obligation to ensure your safety whilst you are there.
This means that should an accident befall you within that environment, you have the right to make a claim through Herefordshire ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors if it can be found that the accident was not your fault but was the fault or the responsibility of another person.
Stairway to Heaven
To clarify, a legal obligation to ensuring health and safety means taking all reasonable steps to ensure the safety or all persons present in a particular place.
To list all of the various elements this might entail would be exhaustive and pointless as most buildings are vastly different depending on their purpose. However the majority of buildings have walls, floors and steps or stairs in place.
Steps and stairs can cause particular problems for people and many accidents are caused by falling either up or down them. In many cases, the falling can be caused by simple clumsiness and can be put down to an accident for which there is no claim because there is nobody to blame for that accident.
However, in other cases, the owner or manager of a building or place could be found liable by Herefordshire no win no fee* solicitors because he failed in his duty of care with regards to the stairs or steps in his building or business.
He may have allowed them to become unsafe by not attending to regular maintenance, he may have failed to remove a hazard which then caused a trip or slip, or he may have been aware that there was a fault such as loose carpet and failed to act to manage this accordingly. In any of these cases and more, the accident which led to an injury may be found by Herefordshire ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors to be the fault of the building owner and compensation may be sought on behalf of the victim.
