    Have you tripped on a frayed rug?


    When you stop to think about trip hazards at work or in public places, a rug probably doesn’t strike you as the most dangerous hazard. But a frayed rug could actually be a hazard that could lead to serious injuries, and if you’ve tripped on a frayed rug, you could find yourself taking time off work to recover from your accident. Accident Advice Helpline could help you get the compensation you’re entitled to for your pain, suffering and any loss of earnings, provided you make a claim within three years of your accident occurring.

    How did your accident happen?

    You might have tripped on a frayed rug in an office, a shop or a public place. Frayed rugs could cause a trip hazard if your heel gets caught in them or if you catch your shoe and fall, and you could suffer serious injuries if you hit your head on something as you fall. Or you could injure your back or shoulder, which means time off work to recover and could affect your earnings. The last thing you want to worry about after dislocating your shoulder or suffering a back injury is how to pay your household bills, which is why making a personal injury claim is such a good idea.

    It’s up to whoever is in charge of the place you were injured – whether that’s at work or in a public place – to ensure that the premises are safe. If they haven’t maintained the flooring and a frayed rug has caused your accident, they could be held liable for your injuries and ordered to pay you personal injury compensation.

    Should you make a claim?

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we believe that you should make a claim if you’re entitled to personal injury compensation – that is, if your injuries have been caused by somebody else. If you have suffered broken bones or more serious injuries after you tripped on a frayed rug, give us a call on 0800 689 0500 to find out if you have a viable claim. You can get confidential advice from our expert personal injury advisors, and there is no obligation to proceed with a claim – it’s totally up to you.

    We’re proud to offer excellent customer service and we have a great track record of success; we’ve been helping people claim compensation since 2000 and we’ve been endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen. What’s more, whether you’ve suffered minor or serious injuries, our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so there are no upfront fees to worry about.
