Slips, trips and falls
Slips, trips and falls are the most common types of accidents as they can happen just about anywhere. You might slip because there was liquid or food spilled on a floor and there were no warning signs. You might have fallen down a step which was not clearly marked. Perhaps you tripped over a broken piece of paving or fell in work over an obstacle that should not have been in a walkway.
If you have an accident in any of these places, you should report it to a member of staff. If you had a slip, trip or fall in the street, you might have had to call a member of the police force, or an ambulance. The police will file an accident report and could also contact the local authority which is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of our roads and streets.
Any accident inside a building should be recorded in the accident book which all places open to the public and workplaces should have by law. It is useful if you, or another person, take photographs of the accident scene as these can be useful as evidence.
Accident solicitor in Boroughbridge
You should be able to see an accident solicitor in Boroughbridge free for the first time. During this time he or she will ask you about the accident and you will have to show, if a claim is to be successful, that someone else’s negligence was responsible for your injury. You will need to have seen a doctor after your accident as failure to see medical treatment as soon as possible could mean that your claim for compensation is weakened. Sometimes you need to see another doctor for a second, expert, opinion.
