Common city hall accidents
We’ve been in the personal injury claims industry since 2000 and during that time we have handled plenty of claims for city hall accident compensation. We’ve noticed that some accidents are more common than others – here are a few examples:
- Slips, trips and falls are a common accidents in busy environments. You could trip over damaged flooring, slip on a wet floor, fall downstairs or even have a tripping accident outside the building.
- Scalded by a member of the public or staff member spilling a hot drink on you
Lacerations from damaged furniture in the waiting area
A slip, trip or fall could result in minor injuries such as a sprained ankle or bruises, but if you land awkwardly, you could break your ankle or even your wrist (as you brace yourself against a fall). In some cases falls have led to serious back injuries and head injuries when individuals have struck their head on something as they fall.
These types of serious injuries have the potential to affect the rest of your life – you could find you’re left permanently mentally or physically disabled or have to go through a period of rehabilitation before you are able to return to work and carry on with your life.
