Some people are injury prone, others are famous among their friends and family for being clumsy, while others are genuine victims of accidents which could have been avoided if procedures had been followed. Lots of people have been left injured, going on to make an accident injury claim in Newham to get compensation from those who are to blame.
Slips and trips are common, we’ve all done it, but many have done it through no fault of their own. Broken kerbs and slippery surfaces should be dealt with efficiently by the local council, the building management or employers and, where appropriate, measures should be taken to warn innocent people about the risks ahead.
When they aren’t dealt with properly, accidents can happen and they have the potential to cause life-changing injuries including broken bones and long-lasting damage.
One of the most common accidents
Slips and trips are among the most common accidents in the UK with significant numbers of people affected each year. Thousands of us head out innocently into town for a bit of shopping, maybe popping into the bakery for a loaf of bread and buying a new top while we’re out.
Then, without being able to do anything, we trip over a broken part of the pavement and this could leave us with broken legs, ankles, wrists, arms or shoulders – as well as other damage – all because the local council failed to repair the damaged pavement.
Nobody wants this to happen and no matter how careful you are sometimes accidents do just happen. However, when someone is genuinely at fault, there are steps you can take to ensure that you receive adequate compensation from your accident injury claim in Newham.
