While personal injuries can take many forms – road traffic accidents, for example, or medical negligence – slips, trips and falls are by far some of the most common. These can result in minor injuries such as strains and sprains, or in some cases even back and neck injuries or broken bones.
If you’ve been injured in a slip, trip or fall and it was someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to compensation. Accident Advice Helpline (AAH) can make pursuing your case easy and stress-free.
Your first step should be to check your eligibility; your accident must have been caused by another person and must have required some sort of medical attention. As a general rule, it must also have occurred at some point within the last three years.
Double check your eligibility for an injury claim in Thurso in just 30 seconds with AAH’s handy online test. If you are judged to be entitled to compensation, this test can also provide an approximate amount for any settlement you may be awarded. However, please note that this is only an estimation and cannot be guaranteed.
Your injury claim in Thurso – slips, trips and falls
Trips and slips can be brought about by a whole range of circumstances, including:
Trips on broken paving slabs
Falls down stairs
Slips on unmarked wet floors
Falls on icy paths
Trips over hazards that have been left in unsuitable places
Whatever the cause of your injury, if someone else was to blame you should pursue your right to compensation. Not only will this ensure you receive any money you may be entitled to, but it will also force the responsible party – your employer, perhaps, or local council – to take steps to ensure such an incident does not happen again.
