Have you realised that the most common accidents that happen to us are slips, trips and falls? If you think about this you will no doubt realise that these can happen anywhere. They may be caused by any of the following:-
- uneven nor broken floor surfaces (especially broken paving).
- unsuitable floor coverings ( for example on a boat the decks should be covered with an anti-slip coating.
- wet floors: if liquid of any kind or food is spilled then it should be cleaned up immediately to avoid accidents and warning signs should be in place.
- changes in levels – for example steps should be clearly marked to avoid falls.
- trailing cables are a common cause of accident because they could occur in an office or outside at a funfair for example.
- poor lighting – this can be hazardous while walking or driving
If you have been injured in a slip, trip or fall, which was caused by another person’s negligence, then you might have a case for filing a claim for personal injury compensation.
If you have suffered an injury in a slip, trip or fall, then you should speak with an accident solicitor in Bures (or one in your locality) and find out if you have grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim. There is no legal aid available for such cases these days, but there are a great many accident solicitors in Bures and elsewhere,who will act on your behalf on a no-win, no-fee basis. That means you don’t have to pay up front.
