    As is only right and proper, many public buildings are now set up with accessibly in mind, be that for wheelchair users or for parents with buggies. Some older buildings commonly have to be fitted with automatic doors that open out one way of the other if it’s not practical or possible to fit sliding doors.

    These are typically either activated with a sensor or a button. While these are obviously preferable to large doors that can only be opened manually, they can still pose a risk to people’s health and safety if they are not working properly. In fact, if they malfunction, they could even pose a risk of doing somebody a very nasty injury that was not their own fault.

    If you were to be injured in an accident that was not your own fault as a result of an encounter with an automatic door that was not working how it should be, there will be chance that you might be able to take some form of personal injury action with the aid of a first class 100% no win no fee* personal injury solicitor after having acquired advice from Accident Advice Helpline.

    Imagine that had to use a wheelchair, either due to a temporary injury or a more permanent condition and had occasion to visit your local council’s offices. Perhaps you needed to order a duplicate birth or marriage certificate from your local registrar.

    After asking where you need to go at reception, you wheel your way down a corridor in the direction you’ve been pointed in and come to large automatic double door that’s operated by a button affixed to the wall. You press the button and start to make your way through the open doorway, only for the doors to suddenly slam shut while you are halfway through. One door hits your foot, causing one of your toes to break and you are in much pain.
