There are many kinds of accident that can lead to a compensation claim being made, car accidents, sporting accidents, work-related accidents, faulty product accidents, you name it, we’ve probably dealt with a claim about it at some point in the past 14 years.
One category of accidents that an accident solicitor in Newham will deal with on a regular basis is the slip, trip and fall.
Slips, trips and falls: the basics
To be precise, these are better described as slips and falls or trips and falls, since it’s probably going to be the case that there is either a trip or a slip.
But either can lead to a fall, and it is the fall that causes the injuries.
What injuries arise in a fall?
The type of injury suffered in a fall will depend on various factors such as how hard the surface is, what led up to the fall, the type of surface, and so on.
If you slip on ice in winter and fall on a concrete footpath, you might break a few bones or even get a head injury, if you trip and fall on a cushioned floor, you might escape fractures but still be pretty badly bruised and have a sprained ankle.
Who was at fault?
It’s not the type of floor or the type of injury we’re interested in at Accident Advice Helpline. What concerns us is whether it was someone else’s fault that it happened. If this is the case, you could be eligible to claim compensation through an accident solicitor in Newham!
