Any fall can really knock the wind out of you, and in some cases it can leave you nursing more than just bruised pride. While very few people will ever fall over outside or inside a petrol station, those that do should consider why they fell. Sometimes it can be down to plain bad luck or negligence on your part – such as tripping and falling over a loose shoelace or simply not paying proper attention to where you are going.
However, in isolated incidents, people can be injured because of a fault that can be laid at the door of those who run or maintain the petrol station. In these cases, there could be easy evidence to find to help support a claim for petrol station fall compensation.
How easy is it to claim?
The claims process can be managed by a professional injury compensation lawyer. However, you don’t have to worry too much about the ins and outs. The lawyer will handle the entire thing and let you know how it is progressing.
Firstly they will want to know what happened, where it happened and how it happened. The date of the incident is important too because it must have occurred within the last three years. If it occurred longer ago than that, the law states that no claim for compensation can be made.
