Have you been left with severe bruising after a slip, trip or fall? This type of accident is more common than you might think – in fact slips, trips and falls are the most common type of accident in the UK. You could easily suffer severe bruising after tripping on a raised kerb or falling over a cracked pavement slab. If you don’t have time to brace yourself before you hit the ground, the result could be facial injuries including:
- A broken or bloodied nose
- Facial fractures
- Lacerations and cuts
- Severe bruising
These types of injuries can take time to heal so you may need time off work to recover, which could mean loss of earnings. We’re here to help you claim personal injury compensation if you’ve suffered bruising after a fall. With years of experience in the industry, we specialise in personal injury claims and have been recommended by our patron, UK consumer champion Esther Rantzen.
How much compensation could you receive?
We’d love to be able to tell you a six-figure settlement will be yours, but in reality the amount of compensation you’ll receive depends on your situation. When working out your settlement, your personal injury lawyer will take into account:
- The extent of your injuries and their severity
- Their impact on your well-being and quality of life
- Any expenses incurred such as medical or travel expenses
- Any loss of earnings
