Minimalism has been very much the rage as far as interior design goes for quite some time now. This can result in retail and public dining spaces boasting walls stripped back to the brickwork and all sorts of pipes and air conditioning tubes being exposed and painted a pastel shade in pricey designer paint.
This is all well and good and very trendy if you like this sort of thing, but might not be right for all buildings. If a business that’s open to the public exposes piping that gets very hot in a place where a member of the public might come into contact with it, either accidentally or not, the customer or visitor in question could wind up in the rather unpleasant situation of suffering an injury as a result of an accident that was not their fault.
Under these circumstances, the person or organisation that owned the business in question could well find themselves facing a personal injury claim from the injured party along with any 100% no win no fee Copthorne solicitor they might retain. In certain circumstances, such an injury could result in a pay-out of many thousands of pounds.
Pipe burns and no win no fee in Copthorne claims
Picture the scene; it’s half-term and you’ve been out shopping with your young son. He’s five. You’re both feeling a little tired and agree that stopping off for some light refreshments will be just the ticket. After a little looking around, you find a small independent café that looks as though it will suffice. It’s a bit too modern for your liking, but you decide to go in nevertheless. While queuing at the counter, you hear your young son let out an almighty scream. While your back was turned, he had crawled under a nearby table. While under there, he grabbed hold of a scalding hot radiator pipe, causing serious burns to his hands.
Under these circumstances, you may well be able to launch a no win no fee in Copthorne personal injury claim with the help of a top solicitor on your child’s behalf. The café you visited would have had a responsibility to make sure that your son was not put at risk of suffering an injury as a result of an accident that was not his fault while he was on their premises.
If you or somebody close to you has suffered an injury as a result of an accident that was not their fault in similar circumstances, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 today and discuss the prospect of making a no win no fee in Copthorne claim.
