Claims advice in Leicester for slips, trips and falls
Slips, trips and falls are the most common of all accidents, with over a million of them happening every year. Some will be minor incidents where perhaps the victim sustains a bruise or graze, but some of them can have very serious consequences. Just imagine for a moment if:
- You slipped on a wet floor that had just been washed, and no warnings had been put on show. If that wet floor happened to be at the top of a flight of concrete steps, you could fall to the bottom, and be very badly injured.
- You tripped over some wires that were trailing between two workstations in your office. You could bang you head on another piece of furniture and receive a severe head injury.
- You were working 5 floors up on a building site, when a bolt came out of the scaffold you were standing on, and the structure collapsed. You would be lucky to survive the fall.
