Accidents happen, whether at work or out in public. Slips, falls and trips are a somewhat painful fact of life. That does not mean, however, that you should let it go. Getting in touch with the experts at Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim the compensation you may be due. Take a look at the guide below to see if you need to dial the freephone number.
Was it someone else’s fault?
Valid claims can be made in cases where the victim has suffered as a result of negligence or insufficient safety care from another person.
When was it?
Your work or public accident will also need to have been within the last three years in order for your claim to be successful so don’t let your pain and embarrassment fester for too long!
Where was it?
The answer to this question will determine who your are claiming against. Falls at work should be covered by the employer’s liability insurance. Should your trip or slip take place out in public then the responsibility lies with the council and their public liability insurance. These include things like tripping on a kerb or stumbling over a loose paving slab. An accident as a result of industrial spillages at work will see your claim brought against your employer.

You better believe it is. Accident Advice Helpline work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis. With over 14 years’ experience as a law firm dealing with accident claims they know exactly what’s required to ensure you are recompensed.
