Do you need to make a no win no fee Erskine compensation claim after being hurt whilst using a lift?
Most public venues and workplaces have lifts or elevators which customers and patrons are welcome to use. Venues such as shopping malls, cinemas and even some restaurants often have these facilities in order to make it easier for customers to get between floors.
Whilst many people rely on the use of a lift, others would prefer to take the stairs or use an escalator, if there is one available. The small space and the possibility that a lift could get stuck can make people feel claustrophobic, so they aren’t a viable option for everyone. Of course, incidents involving lifts aren’t all that common. In most cases, every lift will have an alarm fitted so that people can contact maintenance workers if something does go wrong or they get stuck in the lift. Fortunately, they can often be freed fairly easily.
In more serious cases though, there is a chance that someone could get hurt whilst using a lift. If the doors were to close on them and get stuck, for example, or if the lift were to drop suddenly, they may be hurt as a result. In such cases, those affected may be able to go on to make a no win no fee Erskine personal injury compensation claim.
As most public elevators now have CCTV cameras fitted, it is likely that the whole incident will be caught on tape. This can be extremely useful when it comes to making your no win no fee Erskine claim, as it can help to prove exactly how the incident occurred.
Of course, if there was more than one person in the lift at the time of the incident and they were harmed, they could all go on to make no win no fee Erskine compensation claims. This means that even if you were travelling with your family at the time of the accident, you could all go on to make individual no win no fee Erskine claims if you were hurt.
