Hertsmere ‘no win, no fee’
Many people are aware that when they enter a public building, property or area, their health and safety becomes not only their responsibility but also the responsibility of the owner of that public area. That owner could be a council or local authority, a business owner or an organisation or national institution. In the event of the failure in this responsibility, Hertsmere ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors may seek a claim on behalf of an injured party.
It doesn’t really matter who owns a property or area, the law remains the same: the owner and all other associates such as staff and volunteers must take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety of all visitors to that area or building. Reasonable steps may include the regular maintenance of a property, carrying out risk assessments and attending to all problems and issues as soon as possible.
Should they fail to do so, and a person receives injuries as the result of their failure or negligence, compensation may be awarded by law and Hertsmere ‘no win, no fee’ practitioners can help in claiming this.
From falls and trips to burns and scalds, there are literally thousands of accidents which could happen in a public place and although many are simply accidents, others happen as the result of another person’s negligence or failure to act properly or quickly. Hertsmere no win no fee solicitors use a 30 second test to assess the validity of an accident claim to ensure that anyone who wishes to seek compensation can do so confidently.
At this time of year, being Autumn, thousands of people flock to public places for Halloween activities. We may go to parties, haunted houses or simply go ‘Trick or Treating’. However you choose to mark the occasion, you have the right to feel safe as you do.
Event organisers will need to complete a wide variety of safety checks and assessments before they can allow a party or haunted house event to occur. They will need to ensure that all buildings and equipment are safe for the public, that all staff are trained in crowd management and first aid and that, although the very nature of Halloween is to scare people, the only scares available are perfectly safe. If they fail to do this, compensation may be available through Hertsmere ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors to anyone who receives injuries through the negligent or dangerous behaviour of an event organiser.
