Stairwells probably don’t seem like the most dangerous places on earth – and generally speaking they are not – but you could be injured if you fall whilst going down a flight of stairs at work or in a public place. Your safety is probably the last thing on your mind as you’re rushing around at work or when you’re out shopping, but bear in mind that if you’re injured and somebody else is to blame, claiming stairwell fall compensation with Accident Advice Helpline could be an option that’s available to you, provided it has been three years or less since your accident.
How did your stairwell fall happen?
We can help you to claim stairwell fall compensation if you’ve been injured through no fault of your own. Perhaps one of the following factors was responsible for your accident?
- Somebody spilt liquid or food on the stairs and failed to clean it up
- The stairs were damaged – for example a step was broken
- The handrail was loose and came away from the wall
- There was inadequate lighting in the stairwell
- There were items/stock left lying around in the stairwell, posing a trip hazard
Perhaps you’ve been injured after losing your footing on the stairs at work due to inadequate lighting. If you fall downstairs, you could suffer serious injuries including head injuries, back injuries or broken bones. Or it could be that you have been injured after tripping on a damaged staircase in a department store and suffered minor injuries such as cuts, bruises or a sprained ankle. We can help you to make a 100% no win, no fee* claim no matter how you have been injured.
