Do you need to find an accident lawyer in Ealing because you’ve had a slip or trip in a public place?
Slips and trips often lead to falls, and it is during the fall that you get injured. Depending on the characteristics of the surface, you could end up with anything from a few bruises to a serious head injury or multiple fractures.
What caused the accident?
There are various ways in which a slip and fall or trip and fall accident might occur – and what might result from the accident. Here are two examples:
You are walking in the park. It’s winter, so the weather is cold. When you turn a corner, you slip on some ice and fall on the tarmac. Later on, an X-ray shows that you have broken some ribs.
In a shopping centre, you are walking along and you suddenly slip. The floor is hard – it’s concrete, with a shiny surface. It’s also slick with liquid, because there has been a spillage. You manage to get up, but you cannot walk very far. At hospital, the doctor tells you that you have broken your ankle.
Who is at fault?
In both of the above cases, the person who had the accident is not to blame, so they could be eligible to claim compensation through an accident lawyer in Ealing.
What should have been a walk in the park turned into a disaster because the local council should have ensured that the path was gritted. It was winter, so it was expected that ice might form on the ground. If the path had been gritted, you might not have slipped.
The shopping trip became a nightmare because the spillage should have been cleared up. Someone failed to do so, with the result that there was a slip hazard. You were unlucky enough to encounter it.
