Every year, there is a small handful of individuals who decide to make Bath and North East Somerset personal injury claims. This is the name of a unitary authority that covers the far north-eastern corner of Somerset, including Bath. Thankfully, very few people ever have the need to do this, but you simply never know what life might throw at you next. No matter how careful and diligent you are in being aware of the world around you, there are times when things can still go wrong.
Imagine tripping over and breaking your wrist, for example. Or maybe you had an accident while crossing the road because you caught your foot in a pothole you never saw. There are lots of things that can go wrong, but fortunately most of us avoid them. It’s only on the odd occasion that you may be unlucky and someone else might be to blame for what happened.
Examples of possible Bath and North East Somerset personal injury claims
We’ve covered a couple of examples already, but there are numerous other things that could happen. It’s important – and a relief, too – to understand these are rare, but that doesn’t mean they are impossible. You may already know things can go wrong, and when they do, it might mean you are left with painful and debilitating injuries.
For instance, you could be walking along a high street when a sign falls from a lamppost or a shop and strikes you on the head. You may be walking along a footpath when you trip and fall. A shopping centre could have a slippery floor that causes you to fall, or there could be a poorly-maintained set of stairs leading from a local car park onto the street, and you lose your balance and suffer a nasty fall there, instead. With so many examples of how accidents can happen, it is reassuring to know numbers are usually very small, and few people ever find themselves in situations whereby a compensation claim might be warranted.
