Customer Question

hi, i was at my local storage facility earlier, and slipped on ice outside my unit, they didn't have an accident book but they let me note down the accident and sign it in the office. upon leaving i noticed that there was signs up warning of slippery conditions in cold,
even though they have signs up am i still able to make a personal injury claim?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
You can make a personal injury claim there is nothing stopping you. But any claim will be reduced for contributory fault, because they warned you. But they need to have a system in place to grit etc.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
they do have gritting bins around the premises, i just want to know if i would be successful due to the fact that they had warning signs or weather it would be a waste of time claiming?
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
It's possible you have a claim but as I have said any award will be reduced because of the signs.
