Determining the average payout for a slip or fall is actually very difficult. Every case is different and people are affected in different ways. Some people may be making claims to cover loss of earnings, while others will need compensation for other things. The amount of compensation paid out will depend upon personal circumstances and many other factors. It is always better to speak to professionals about the amount of compensation that you should expect to receive than try to guess. This is where Accident Advice Helpline comes in. By looking at your personal circumstances and the type of accident that you have been involved in, our professionals will be able to give you an approximate amount to expect or at least an average payout for a slip or fall based on other cases similar to yours.
Making a compensation claim for a slip or a fall is not complicated. When you contact Accident Advice Helpline, you will find that there are plenty of professionals who can guide you in the right direction. When you first call you should have as much information to hand as possible as this will make it far easier for us to be able to advise you. Our team will match you to a solicitor of ours who is experienced in compensation claims for slips and falls and who will be able to deal with the process on your behalf and give you the correct information as your claim progresses.
If you have had a slip or fall then you need to be aware that it may not necessarily be your fault. If a pavement is uneven, for example, or a small step is not clearly marked, or a floor was wet but there was no warning sign, these cases are all down to the negligence of a third party and, as a result, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Everyone has a responsibility to ensure that their premises are safe for people to use and to make sure that there are no trip hazards or anything that could cause a person to be injured while they are simply walking along.
Companies and organisations need to have insurance that covers them for the possibility that somebody might be injured in this way on their premises or land. The claim is made through the insurance company so there is no need to worry that an individual is going to be left out of pocket as a result of the claim.Open Claim Calculator
The thought of legal costs is something that might deter people from making a claim for compensation. This is not something that you need to worry about as Accident Advice Helpline has a ‘no win, no fee*’ policy in order to allow everyone to make a claim without the fear of incurring expensive costs. Claimants who have a successful claim will receive as much compensation as possible, but there are no legal bills if the case is unsuccessful. For this reason we will not give you false hope and allow you to think that you might be successful if the chances are slim.
