Slips, trips and falls can happen at work, while you are out shopping, or when you are having a family day out at a theme park. In fact they can happen anywhere, which is why there are more slips, trips and falls than any other type of accident. Your should speak with an accident lawyer in Pontardawe if your slip, trips or fall was caused by someone else.
Overall, the number of accidents in the UK every year is estimated to exceed 3million, with slips, trips and falls accounting for one third of them. When you consider how many different types of accidents there are, this puts slips, trips and falls way ahead of any other single category.
If someone else is to blame for the accident you are injured in, you are entitled to claim compensation from whoever was at fault. This could be a person, a local authority, a company, or maybe your employer. Whoever it is does not have to be present to be to blame. If your slip, trip or fall is because of:
- Broken paving slabs that the local council should have repaired
- Potholes in the road that the local authority should have repaired
- An obstacle left in a walkway in a shop that causes someone to trip
- A spillage that should have been cleaned up, or at least had a warning nearby, that causes someone to slip
- A broken handrail on a fire escape 4 floors up. With no warning sign someone could easily put pressure on it and fall all four floors
These are just a few examples of how slips, trips and falls can happen where the responsible party was not present at the time.
