Accident Lawyer in East Dorset

Many of us are familiar with slips and trips, and the injuries that they cause – when you fall, you’re likely to get injured, and the injuries you suffer can be quite severe if the surface on which you fall is hard.

Where do slips, trips and falls happen?

Many of us are familiar with slips, trips and falls in public places, such as parks, and other places, such as shops and entertainment venues.

But you can also suffer slips, trips and falls at work. If this happens to you, you could claim compensation through an accident lawyer in East Dorset. Accident Advice Helpline has a whole team of ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyers, and a hotline that’s open 24/7, so we’re the ideal law firm to choose – and we’re one of the largest in the UK.

Why you could claim for a slip or trip and fall at work

Your employer has a duty to ensure you have a safe working environment. If you get injured in a slip or trip and fall at work, it could be because your employer has failed to ensure your safety.

All employers should have employers’ liability insurance, which they take out for the very purpose of paying out in the event of a claim for injury being made – so you don’t have to worry about being treated differently when you go back to work, or, worse, being sacked. Such unfair treatment could land your employer in court.

Claim through an accident lawyer in East Dorset

If you wish to proceed with a claim, you will need to call Accident Advice Helpline on one of these numbers:

  • 0800 689 0500 from a landline
  • 0333 500 0993 from a mobile

Alternatively, you could text “claim365” to 88010 and await a call from an advisor.

Your adviser will be your first point of contact with us. They will ask you some questions, take your details, and answer any questions that you might have about the process of making a claim. If you’re eligible to claim, they will pass your details to an accident lawyer in East Dorset, who will get to work straight away.

If you win your case, you will receive a payout, which will consist of a sum of money for the accident and injury plus a sum to reimburse you for any expenses you’ve incurred because of the accident.

Preventing slips, trips and falls in the workplace

If you’re worried about getting injured through a slip or trip and fall at work, here are some tips on prevention:

  • Keep floors dry and clean – if you see a spillage, clear it up
  • Remove obstacles such as boxes and papers from your immediate workspace
  • Don’t trail cables across areas where people walk
  • Report any near misses to your employer – it might flag up a problem area to be addressed

If you do need a solicitor, don’t forget to call Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible.
