    Public place accidents in Coventry

    Coventry has a population of 316,900 according to the most recent census and the city also attracts thousands of visitors every year. With a host of schools, colleges, shops, bars, cafes and supermarkets on offer, there is a risk of public place accidents. The most common types of accidents in a public place include:

    • Slipping on a wet floor.
    • Tripping over steps.
    • Tripping on uneven pavements.
    • Tripping over obstructions in supermarket aisles and in the doorways of public buildings.
    • Falling down the stairs.
    • Falling into a pothole in the road or pavement.

    Slip and trip injuries

    Slips, trips and falls can result in a wide range of injuries, from minor cuts to severe, life-threatening injuries. Examples of injuries, which may occur as a result of a public place fall or trip include:

    • Lacerations.
    • Broken bones.
    • Strained or sprained ligaments.
    • Dislocated joints.
    • Back pain.
    • Head injuries.

    If you’ve been injured after slipping in a public place and you can prove that you were not to blame, you may wish to consider claiming public liability compensation. You will need to note down details about the incident and see a trained medical professional at the time, to ensure there is a record of your injuries and the course of action that was taken.

    What are the benefits of claiming personal injury compensation?

    Accidents can happen when you least expect them and sometimes, they can leave you with injuries, which affect your quality of life and contribute to fears about working in the future and providing for your family. Slip and trip compensation is designed to provide a financial payout for people who have sustained injuries through no fault of their own. Compensation is not handed out to everyone; it is purely approved for those who deserve to be compensated in return for the physical or emotional stress and illness they have suffered as a result of a public place accident. Money obtained through compensation payouts can help with medical costs and provide a nest-egg for the future in the event that you have to take time off work or take a pay cut through changing jobs.
