Wherever you are, be it at work, on a pavement, in a shop, or a social venue then it is the responsibility of those who own or maintain the premises to ensure that it is safe for you to use. Slips and falls occur all too frequently and can happen to any of us at times when we least expect it. You can be as careful as possible but accidents do still happen. When you are injured as a result of an accident then you may be able to make a claim.
Injuries from a slip or fall can have devastating consequences on both your professional and personal life. If you are confined to a bed as a result of an injury then it is likely that you will have to take time off of work. This may cause you to potentially lose out on a full wages for the time you are unwell. You may also have to take on additional expenses, such as having to rely on personal care or treatment for your injury with which you would not be able to make a full and complete recovery without.
If you injury is severe then you may have to cancel planned holidays both nationally and internationally. This depends upon the nature of the injury and the necessary travelling involved in getting to where it was that you had planned to spend your time away. This can often lead to lost deposits, cancellation fees, and severe emotional distress to both you and those with whom you had planned to go away.
When a slip or fall happens because an environment was not correctly maintained by those whose responsibility it is, you may have grounds for a claim. You have placed your trust in those responsible for keeping you safe. When those responsible have allowed an environment to fall into such conditions that it has caused you to injure yourself then that trust has been breached. If you have had to take on additional financial burdens as a part of your recovery process then you are well within your rights to pursue a claim against those responsible for your accident.
