Ladies Who Lunch
Going out for lunch with your friends, no matter what the occasion is often a lot of fun. The chance to catch up, enjoy some great company and a nice meal, perhaps a cheeky bottle of something offers a great way to pass the afternoon.
However, being a lady who lunches is not always without its own risks. Therefore it is important to know that if you are injured as a result of an accident that was not your fault that you can make a Pontrhydyfen ‘no win, no fee’ claim should you need to do so.
Slips, trips or falls
One of the most common ways people are injured and find themselves wanting to make a Pontrhydyfen ‘no win, no fee’ claim is if they suffer a slip, trip or fall in a public place. Such accidents are common because they are so easily caused. On the flip side, they can also easily be prevented which is why many of the Pontrhydyfen ‘no win, no fee’ claims we handle are successful and our clients are ultimately awarded compensation.
For example, one of the most common causes of slips in a restaurant environment is spillages from drinks. These cannot be prevented, and are certainly an everyday hazard when it comes to waitressing. However, failure to clean up spilt items, or place warning signs that the floor may be wet, are just two of the reasons why accidents occur, and why liability is usually placed at the feet of the restaurant owners. Simply advising members of the public, or even other staff members, that there is a hazard and that caution should be taken, is often enough to ensure that should an accident occur, that the owners are not found liable. This in itself is enough to make sure that Pontrhydyfen ‘no win, no fee’ claims are not made against them, or that financial penalties are not incurred.
The same is true of trips which often occur as a result of poorly maintained flooring. Uneven tiles or walkways, perhaps lose slabs or carpets are often the most common causes of Pontrhydyfen no win no fee claims being made in these scenarios. Equally, leaving rubbish lying around or other items that should be put away is another cause for concern and could prove dangerous and costly for all those involved.
Falls often occur as a result of trips, however these can be regarded as completely separate events. For example, if there is no light present over a stairwell, which in turn makes it difficult to see what is happening, then an individual may fall down the stairs, causing injury.
