Falling over can happen for a myriad of different reasons. Trip hazards can sometimes prove to be exactly that – causing someone to trip and fall. Many fall injury lawyers have handled cases from people in this situation, as well as handling personal injury claims made by people who experienced a fall from height that led to injuries of several kinds.
Of course, when you have a fall – no matter what kind of fall it is – you won’t be thinking about whether or not a lawyer can help you. Instead, you’ll be focusing entirely on the situation you’re in. Are you hurt? Do you need medical attention? Can you get up or do your injuries prevent you from doing so? These will be the immediate things on your mind.
How can a lawyer help you?
There will be a time when you start thinking about the nature of your accident and how it came to occur. Was anyone else around at the time? Did you fall because the pavement you were walking on was uneven and should have been repaired to prevent people tripping over?
Maybe you were at work and you had an accident when you fell from a gantry or raised platform that did not have any safety bars or preventative measures in place that could have prevented the fall from occurring. Whatever situation you were in, it’s important to speak to an expert who can advise you whether you might have a chance to claim.
