Accidents can happen to all of us and when they do we hope to be able to get back to what we were doing and think nothing more of it. Yet sometimes an accident can lead to an injury which ends up affecting our lives and our usual activities. If you have been the victim of an accident which has led to slip or fall injury you may want to find out more about slip and fall injury types and your right to compensation.
How do slips happen?
Wet floors can be the biggest culprit of slips which lead to injuries. You may experience a wet floor at work or in a place of business and by law customers and staff should be alerted to the hazard of a wet floor with clear signage. Most of us will be familiar with the yellow floor signs which get put up when liquid has spilled on a floor or when the floors are being cleaned. If you slipped on a wet floor but there were no warning signs to make you aware of the potential danger in front of you, you could be compensated.
How do falls happen?
Falls from height can be dangerous due to the impact when hitting the ground. You may have fallen from a ladder or stairs at work. Do you work on roofs or at height? Have you suffered a fall which was not your fault? Falls may also occur from poor flooring inside or bad pavement outside. If you were left injured after a fall you may want to explore your right to compensation.
