Do you want to know how can slips, trips and falls occur?
How can slips, trips and falls occur? In no end of different ways. They can happen in the workplace, in shops, parks, on the street or maybe in your local restaurant. They can be caused by spillages, obstacles, loose flooring and any other health and safety issues. Wherever you are, someone is responsible for your safety, and if they fail in this legal duty, and you are injured in an accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.
Who is to blame?
Your claim would be made against whoever was to blame for your accident. This means if you suffer injuries in:
- A shop, cinema, or other place the public visit – it would be the owners
- At work – your employer would be held responsible
- On the streets or in public parks – it would be the local council who should maintain them in good order
When you are asking yourself how can slips, trips and falls occur, just remember that if all health and safety measures were in place, there would be less people injured in this type of accident.
Some form of insurance covers most accidents situations, and it would be the insurance company that settles your compensation claim.
Can you make a claim for compensation?
Anyone that has been injured in an accident that was not their fault can claim compensation as long as they had medical treatment, and they start their claim within three years of the accident happening.
As many as 70% of innocent accident victims do not make a claim, often because they are concerned about the legal costs. At Accident Advice Helpline, we work on a no win no fee basis, so you do not need to worry about financing your claim.
