Get in touch today if you need advice on claiming in Woking.
Amongst the most common injuries we deal with in our capacity as specialist personal injury lawyers are slips, trips and falls. These are accidents in which people are injured by slipping, tripping, or falling over either in a public place or whilst at work.
Slip, trip and fall accidents may not sound like they would be very serious, but they have been known to cause some very bad injuries, including:
- Head injuries
- Brain injuries
- Broken bones
It is for these reasons that you may want to consider filing a claim for personal injury compensation if you have suffered a slip, trip or fall injury in the last 3 years.
How to get advice on claiming in Woking
Slip, trip or fall claims can be more difficult to make than many other kinds of accident because it is not always obvious who is responsible for the accident. Luckily Accident Advice Helpline have years of experience in dealing with such claims and we can help you to work this out.
In most personal injury claims, it will be the owner of the public land where the accident took place who is responsible for any injury that took place. This could be a local council, business owner or a private landowner, depending on where the accident took place.
All can be sued providing that the land where you had your accident is considered to be a public place. If you were on land which is considered to be private without permission, it is unlikely that you will be able to make a claim.
Proving your claim
In order for us to help you present the best possible case, we will need to provide evidence that someone else is to blame. This could include:
- Photographs of potholes or uneven surfaces
- Witness statements
- Accident logs
- Medical evidence
Which is why it is so important that you seek treatment for your injuries and report your accident to the relevant people e.g. the local council or your employers.
