If you knew somewhere was not safe, would you still go there?
The likelihood is that you would not. We all like to think we are safe and secure as we go about our daily business. We also like to think that when we go away, whether for a day trip or holiday, that the places we will visit, the places in which we will stay, and the transport provided will be safe and secure to use.
Our solicitor in Totland Bay knows all too well that sometimes, people are let down, and when this happens the results can be catastrophic.
All companies, businesses, agencies and individuals have a responsibility
If you throw open the doors of your business and invite the paying general public in, then you have a set of responsibilities to keep them safe — from making sure any food and drink is prepared hygienically through to the premises themselves being safe.
There are times, for example, when maintenance and routine cleaning need to take place, and we all know that it would not make any economic sense for a business to shut its doors while this is carried out. But hazards need to be identified and the necessary action taken to ensure the public are kept safe. This can be signage showing that care needs to be taken when entering the area, or it could be sectioning an area off for a period of time.
In order for work of this nature to be successful, it needs to be planned and protocols followed. Our solicitor in Totland Bay knows that when these are not followed to the exact instruction, accidents occur, people get hurt and compensation can be payable.
Compensation – surely an expensive exercise for very little gain?
Many people think that claiming compensation is expensive; after all, it does involve legal representatives, and we all know that legal-eagles are not cheap! At one time, making a claim for compensation was a financial risk that was too big for some people to take. Failure meant a huge amount of expense.
But if you were hurt and it was not your fault, you should not be shouldering the financial burden. That’s why here at Accident Advice Helpline, all of our solicitors, including our expert solicitor in Totland Bay, work on a no win no fee basis.
What this means in practice for you is that you do not need to find thousands of pounds to make a claim. We have robust assessment procedures so your claim is assessed for success right at the start.
Contacting Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 does not obligate you in any way, but we know that our solicitor in Totland Bay is the one for your case!
