One of the most common accidents of all is slips, trips and falls, and if someone else was to blame for this type of accident happening to you, you could be entitled to compensation. An accident lawyer in Oldham can help you with your claim .
There is no end to the ways these accidents happen, so it is no surprise that slips, trips and fall happen often. It is often thought that slips, trips and falls are a minor accident, but they can produce many serious injuries from fractures to brain injuries and sometimes death.
One of the main factors in the severity of the injury is how the slips, trips and falls occur. For example, it you slipped on a wet floor you could hurt your back, or maybe break on arm. But if that wet floor happened to be at the top of a flight of stairs, the injuries you have sustained by the time you reach the bottom of them could be a lot worse.
Falls are not too bad if you fall over a broken paving slab in the street and bang you knee, but what if you fall from height, you could be lucky to survive. Tripping over trailing wires or loose flooring might shock you more than anything else, but what if you hit you head on the squared corner of a piece of furniture as you fall, you could suffer a very nasty head injury.
