Premises injury claims

Personal Injury resulting from defects in premises are common and where the owner of the premises has failed to keep them safe or in a saisfactory state of repair a claim for compensation for the injuries sustained is likely to be possible.

Accidents may arise in many situations including the workplace, shops, restaurants, schools, hospitals, sports grounds or outdoor public areas such as roads or footpaths etc. Injuries may be caused by :-

  1. Pitted, damaged or uneven floors, loose floorboards
  2. Wet or slippery floors
  3. Worn or poorly fitted carpets or flooring
  4. Defective handrails, worn or damaged stairs or steps, inadequate lighting
  5. Poor or obstructed access
  6. Protruding objects
  7. Defective electrical installations
  8. Unsafe walkways

Those who own, occupy or control premises have a duty or care at Common Law and obligations under statutes such as The Occupiers Liability Act 1957 and Defective Premises Act 1972. Employers have a duty of care towards their employees which includes the provision of safe premises and equipment. Breach of the duty of care or any relevant statute which causes injury to an employee or member of the public may result in a successful claim for compensation from the victim.

Mrs B was crossing a pedestrian crossing pushing her grandson in a baby buggy when she was knocked to the ground by a car driven by the defendant. The accident caused a complex fracture to her right foot.   Liability was denied as both parties claimed the lights were in their favour. At trial Cooks were successful in proving Mrs B’s case and she was awarded £90,000.00.
"I would like to thank you and all your staff for your courtesy and professionalism in what has been a very distressing time for us all..."
