Shutter door accidents: The Injury Lawyers advice

accident report

We’ve represented a few people for shutter door accidents over the many years we’ve been fighting for the rights of personal injury negligence victims.

As a firm, we look to concentrate on the more serious injuries when it comes to compensation claiming, and shutter door cases can involve some horrendous suffering. Any head injury can be serious and can leave the victim with long-term or permanent problems. Equally, victims can suffer from serious orthopaedic injuries as well

Here’s a little advice about what can you do if you’re ever injured by a shutter door.

Can you claim compensation for shutter door accidents?

Victims of shutter door accidents can be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation where we can establish negligence in the case.

Common scenarios include broken shutters that lead to accidents, or employees accidentally closing them on people.

In both of those scenarios, we could establish negligence. Any broken equipment that leads to an accident can lead to a successful claim for compensation. When it comes to the negligence of an employee, their employer can be held vicariously liable for the negligence. That simply means that it’s their employer that can be responsible for the case.

Differences as a member of the public and at work

There are differences in terms of whether you’re injured as a member of the public, or injured at work, when it comes to shutter door accidents.

For accidents in public, like in a shop for example, it’s the Occupiers Liability Act that you generally use to claim. This key piece of law makes occupiers of a building responsible for the health and safety of visitors and puts a duty on them to take reasonable steps to ensure people are safe.

When it comes to being injured at work by shutters, we have separate workplace health and safety legislation. One of the key ones that might come into play is the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER), as the shutter can form as part of work equipment. It could fall within a few of the workplace regulations we have in place, and you could have a stronger case when injured at work in this kind of scenario.
