    Personal Injury Solicitors in Solihull

    If you have a relative living or staying in a care home or hospital, the last thing you want to hear is that they have had a nasty fall from a window, stairs or balcony. The injuries are likely to be serious or even life threatening and their recovery could be a long one. They may suffer injuries from which they will never recover.

    You can ask yourself if this accident was caused by someone else. If the hospital or care home has not taken measures to prevent the fall from occurring then it may be possible to show that it was their fault. If this is the case then Solihull no win no fee* lawyers may be able to help you start a claim for compensation.

    Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help with this and a quick call to them will both answer your initial queries and give you a chance to find out more about the personal injury claims process with Solihull no win no fee* lawyers. As the name suggests, you will be able to access the no win no fee* scheme for an accident in the Solihull area so you will not have to worry about paying out large legal fees to get things started.

    What do Solihull no win no fee* lawyers do in personal injury claims?

    The first task that Solihull lawyers will tackle is proving who was to blame for the accident in which your vulnerable relative was injured. This is called establishing liability. There are many duties that the operator of a care home or hospital should perform to keep everyone safe and well. There are laws and regulations that will apply to this situation. Two relevant pieces of legislation could be:

    • Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974
    • Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
    • Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992

    If the care home or hospital operator has not complied with the above laws and regulations then this may be useful in proving that they were to blame. Some of these laws and regulations would be especially interesting to the Solihull lawyers that are handling your case at Accident Advice Helpline.

    They cover the duties relating to glazing material and advise where safety glass should be used and where glass should be protected against breakage by means of a screen or barrier. There is also advice on making these barriers difficult to climb. In some circumstances, devices should be used which prevent windows from being opened  too far – these are called window restrictors. The bottom edge of openable windows may have to be at least 800 mm above floor level unless there is a barrier to prevent falls.
