Thankfully not every fall we encounter warrants the eager eye of a personal injury solicitor. How many times have we fallen over the kids toys? These little accidents take place all over the world and we have no-one to blame but ourselves. However, a fall on public property is a different matter. It is often caused through someone behaving negligently. Who is to blame? It could be your employer, the local supermarket, or other personnel in-charge of the properties maintenance.
Best Solicitor Brean: Because you may have a right to claim
We all know the level of pain encountered when we stub our toe on something hard. After a few seconds that excruciating pain subsides and normal walking resumes. However, a stubbed toe caused by a protrusion should have been corrected before it contributed to an accident.
If it caused someone to fall awkwardly and suffer serious physical harm, a personal injury solicitor would investigate to determine who was responsible and take steps to seek recompense for your injuries.
Best Solicitor Brean: To aid you with the claims process
Perhaps you were taking an innocent stroll along a walkway. The area may have appeared to be perfectly safe. However, something caused you to lose balance and take a nasty fall. It is only when you investigate further that you became aware of the big pothole that your foot fell into.
A no win no fee solicitor would make enquiries to find out if the owner knew that the path was in dire need of repair. If it is proved that this matter was raised but nothing was done to correct it, a solicitor will use negligence as the foundation for a compensation claim.
Best Solicitor Brean: Because accidents hurt
How many times have you taken an awkward slip or trip on an icy patch during the winter? You feel your heart skip a beat and you quickly resume composure. However, if that slip or trip took place in an office or shop where an individual was unprepared for such an instance, it could cause a serious injury.
Without any warning signs to alert the customer of a slippery surface, people would walk into the store at a normal pace, unprepared for the hazard which lays ahead.
