Most people in the West Midlands will be familiar with Walsall, since it is located in that county. Many people live here too, with some 67,500 people living in the built-up part of Walsall and a further 270,000 residing in the borough of Walsall. Suffice to say, if you wanted to find a lawyer in Walsall to provide advice about a compensation claim possibility, it shouldn’t be too hard to do so.
With that said, there are still easier ways to get in touch with a lawyer, should you ever find yourself in a predicament where you’ve been injured through someone else’s negligence. This might occur if you are in a public place such as a shop, a gym, a sports centre or even a park. Injuries can potentially occur anywhere, and while some are due to nothing more than a simple accident, negligence can potentially be behind some of them.
How can negligence lead to injuries occurring?
Let’s say you are in a shop and you’re browsing the shelves. If one of those shelves suddenly collapsed and fell on you, breaking your arm or causing you some nasty cuts, that wouldn’t be your fault. The shop owner has a duty of care to make sure they provide a safe environment for you to shop in. If they did not maintain the shelves properly or overloaded them with stock, those shelves may become potentially dangerous and just such an accident might occur.
In another example, you might be at the gym using some of the equipment. Think of exercise bikes, weights and so on. If you got on an exercise bike that was available for use and it broke while you were using it, you could suffer some unpleasant injuries. Again, if it had not been maintained, or those in charge knew it was faulty and had done nothing to rectify this, there would be the potential for a claim for compensation to be made.
