The Beast from the East Set to Return

It turns out the so called Beast from the East might be making an appearance again. Going by last year, this will mean periods of snow, ice and lots of teeth chattering!

I don’t know about you but the last thing I want to be doing when there is snow or ice on the ground is drive to work or do the school run in it but many of us make what seems to be the sensible choice of leaving the car at home in favour of walking.

Then it happens, what you really don’t want to happen, you lose your footing, slip and slide all over the show and hope that nobody is watching. Some people get up and carry on with their day as if nothing has happened but for others the outcome is different, bruises, soft tissue injuries, or even broken bones.

If you slip on snow or ice at work you could be entitled to compensation. Your employer has a duty of care towards all employees to ensure they do everything reasonably possible to prevent employees slipping on snow and ice in the workplace. This includes keeping areas clear of snow and ice which are frequently used such as work yards, car parks and pathways.

Different authorities and organisations owe each of us different duties of care including local councils and occupiers of premises.

So if the Beast from the East does return and you suffer injury as a result of slipping on snow and ice, call GC Solicitors on 01462 483800 to see if you could claim compensation.

Were you a client of Ice Blue Legal LLP? What do you need to do now about your accident claim?

The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) intervened into Ice Blue Legal LLP 1st Floor, 14 Church Street, Ormskirk, Lancashire, L39 3AN on 4th September 2018 and closed it with immediate effect.

The SRA has appointed Gordons LLP as their intervention Agent, which means that the Agent will take possession of all client files and documents but will not be taking any steps to progress the personal injury claims.

You will probably already be aware that personal injury claims have important time limits, so if you are concerned about your personal injury claim, please contact GC Solicitors who will happily look into obtaining your file of papers if you haven’t already received it and we can advise you about getting your case moving again.

GC Solicitors has experience of taking over claims from other firms of solicitors, so you can be sure you will be in safe hands with us.

Online Courts
The legal profession cannot stand still in the face of technological change. This is the belief of the Lord Chancellor, David Gauke expressed recently, during the opening of an international forum on, 'Online Courts', organised by the HMCTS (the law courts) and the Society for Computers and Law.

So the idea here is that by using modern technology such as our Smartphones, access to justice would be opened up to ordinary people, changing the role of lawyers, removing unnecessary costs, duplication and waste. According to Professor Richard Susskind, the President of the Society for Computers and Law, more people in the world have access to the internet than have access to justice!

Canada is currently pioneering the first online court which is something to watch, as it will provide a marker, so that we can gauge how well our courts may perform, if this is a route that the UK ends up taking.
