Injury solicitors in Hetton
Going out shopping with a buggy or pram can be hard work, especially at busy times of year such as Christmas. An uncomfortable situation can be made worse if you have to lug around multiple bags that you’ve had no choice but to hang off your stroller.
Fortunately, most stores supply lifts for both parents with children in buggies and the disabled, but what if these were to break down? If you were to suffer any sort of physical or psychological injury as a result of a breakdown, you might be able to use the services of top-flight 100% no win no fee injury solicitors in Hetton to sue for compensation.
Broken down lifts and injury solicitors in Hetton
Getting stuck in a lift is one of most people’s worst nightmares. If you were out shopping and got caught in a broken lift, there is a chance that you might be able to take action against the business responsible for its upkeep for compensation with the aid of decent injury solicitors in Hetton if you were to suffer as a consequence.
Say your lift came to a halt between floors and you were left to languish alone without any help for more than two hours without any access to refreshments, despite repeatedly pressing the emergency button. This would be an extremely upsetting ordeal for anybody, but if you had some sort of pre-existing anxiety disorder, claustrophobia or were prone to panic attacks, circumstances such as these could be almost unbearable and lead to ongoing distress psychological injury.
You might even be hurt in an accident that was not your fault as the result of a lift breakdown even if you were not caught in a lift when it broke down. Say you were on the top floor of a building when a problem was identified with a shop’s lift while you had your buggy and child with you. You are told that you will have to make your way down to the ground floor in a staff lift that is used to move stock around the store. While making your way to the staff lift, you trip on a box that has been left in your path, falling to the floor and breaking a finger on your way down. You could not see the box as the area you were walking through was so poorly lit. Here also, you may be able to take action with the assistance of good injury solicitors in Hetton.
