No win no fee* if you have been injured in a public place n Three Rivers
You may be aware that whenever you enter a public building or area, the owners or occupiers of that building or area have obligations towards your safety and the safety of other members of the public.
Depending on the type of building or area and its purpose, the specific details of the obligations might change as the owner or occupier must take more care or precautions, but the obligations which are commonly known as a duty of care are a universal requirement.
In the event of any company, business or individual failing in their duty of care, a member of the public could be injured and if this is the case, that person has the right to make a claim for compensation for their injuries by contacting a no win no fee* in solicitor to discuss being injured in a public place in Three Rivers.
Busy Building Sites
If the building or area in question is either a building site or is undergoing some renovation, the need for precautions becomes more necessary. Whilst building sites are often completely fenced off with danger and warning signs throughout, there are many public areas where work is being done whilst the building or premises remains open to the public.
For example, a shop might be having some refitting to a single aisle of the store whilst remaining open for business.
There is, of course, nothing wrong with doing this as long as the shop owners and the people carrying out the building and refurbishment remain mindful of their duty of care to the public. Were they to fail in this regard and one of the customers became injured as a result, that customer would have the right to seek compensation for being injured in a public place in Three Rivers, through no win no fee* solicitors.
Compensation might also be sought through no win no fee* solicitors if a person were to be injured as the result of inadequate signage pointing out hazards within a building or construction area.
Because of the nature of a construction area, there is danger of falling, tripping, being cut or bruised, inhalation of dust and many more. As a result of this, any area which is undergoing building or construction work must have a full risk assessment done and any hazards must be minimised so as to safeguard the public and any hazards adequately noted so that the public can be made aware. Failure to do this could cause injury to the public and as a result the injured people would have the right to make a claim for compensation with no win no fee* Three Rivers solicitors.
