No win no fee* in Bewcastle
Any organisation, be it privately or publically run, has a legal responsibility to make sure that any work it carries out on the public highway or on pavements or pedestrian paths poses as little risk as possible of doing member of the public an injury that came about as the result of an accident that was not their fault.
Whether it be a council worker fixing a broken paving stone, an employee of a local water firm attempting to fix a leak or an engineer from a phone company working on an exchange junction box, any work that’s carried out where pedestrians or motor vehicles might have access to will need to be completed with the safety of the public in mind.
If a public or private organisation that needs to carry out some sort of work on a road or pavement fails in its duty to protect members of the public from being injured in an accident that was not their fault, an injured party might be able to use the service of decent 100% no win no fee* Newcastle solicitor to launch an action for compensation.
Pavement and road accidents and no win no fee* Bewcastle solicitors
You might be able to take action against an organisation that was carrying out some work in the street with the aid of a no win no fee* Bewcastle solicitor regardless of whether activity was actually taking place at the time you were done a mischief. It won’t matter if workers were on site or whether you were hurt out of hours after everybody had gone home, leaving the site in an unsafe state before planning to return the next day.
In fact, there’s a good chance that you’ll stand a greater chance of being injured by road or pavement works once dusk has fallen and workers have gone home for the day if a site has not been left in a safe state. Imagine that you were making your way home from a railway station late at night along a poorly lit pavement.
If you were to come across a hole that workers had not properly cordoned off and flagged with warning signs, there would be a chance that you might wind up falling down it, doing yourself a nasty injury while you were about it. In these circumstances, you might be able to use the services of a top-flight no win no fee* Bewcastle solicitor to sue for a compensation pay-out.
