People often ask if they should seek the services of an accident solicitor in Charnwood if they have suffered a slip and fall injury. Our reply to them is this: Yes!
Slip and fall injuries
A slip and fall injury is perhaps self-explanatory: you slip, you fall, and you get injured. The slip may happen on an icy surface, such as a non-gritted path in winter, or a polished surface, such as a tiled floor in a workplace.
The fall is what happens as a result of the slip, because you’re not expecting to slip, so you don’t have the time to react fully to what happens. You might be able to protect your head if you’re really quick – but you might not. You could land in one of many different positions.
Injury is what may happen following the fall. You could be lucky and land on a soft surface, such as a patch of grass or mud if you’ve slipped on a footpath – but you might still sustain an injury even then. Cuts, bruises, fractured ribs, broken legs or arms, and head injuries are all possible in such cases.
Why you should consider using an accident solicitor in Charnwood
Whether your injuries are minor or severe, you will experience some upheaval following the incident that caused them. This could be inconvenience (not being able to go out and see friends or attend a family gathering), pain and suffering (possibly requiring prescription medication), and even financial problems.
The financial problems are often what makes someone think about getting hold of an accident solicitor in Charnwood, because it’s hard to sustain things when you’re losing money through not being at work, and shelling out extra cash on services such as home helps, childminders, and public transport.
If you claim and your case is successfully settled, the payout you are awarded will cover your expenses (so keep hold of your receipts!) but part of it will be for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity, too. This will help you to get your life back on track again, facing the future with a little extra safety net. After such negative events, it will be welcomed by you.
