Tripping accident at work
Levenes Solicitors have settled a claim for a client who tripped in a pothole in the car park at her place of employment.
She suffered ligament damage to her ankle and needed an operation.
At first the insurers denied liability, but later thanks to the arguments put forward by our solicitors, liability was admitted.
It was important to establish and show that the employer failed to ensure that the work environment was maintained to a high safety standard and the pothole represent a hazard.
A car park at your place of employment is just as much your workplace as the floor of the factory, warehouse or office.
The employer has to keep the car park properly maintained. There is no excuse for an employer not to keep on top of this. They should regularly inspect their ground, and footpaths from the car park to the door of the building.
Levenes Solicitors always properly investigate and fight your case
One of the ways we can help our clients after an accident at work, by making a personal injury claim, is to force the insurer to pay for treatment privately. Treatment can be in many forms, ranging from physiotherapy, psychotherapy to surgery.
Claimants who have been waiting for NHS treatment have the chance to get their treatment privately and, in this case, the insurers paid for the private surgery that our client needed.
The claim was settled for a significant sum which has enabled the Claimant to move on in her life.
