Slip, Trip or Fall Compensation Claim in Sandwich
If you have hurt yourself because of a slip, trip or fall, you could be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim in Sandwich. Thousands of people are injured every year because of a slip, trip or fall. Musculo-skeletal injuries are by far the most common types of injury. Fractures and dislocations are also common.
Can I claim for any type of injury?
You can make a personal injury compensation claim in Sandwich for any type of personal injury. As long as the accident that caused your injury happened within the last three years and someone else was to blame, then you are fully entitled to make a claim.
I have been injured in a slip, trip, fall. What should I do?
If you are injured in a slip, trip or fall, it is essential to gather evidence from the start. For example, if your accident is caused by a defect in the pavement, take a photograph of the defect or ask someone else to do take the photograph for you. Write down the names and addresses of the people who witnessed your accident. You should also report the accident to the council as they have a duty to repair the defect and prevent others being injured.
To make a successful trip, slip or fall compensation claim in Sandwich, you need to be able to prove another person or company was to blame. This means the other person or company must have a duty of care to you and must have breached that duty. For example, if you trip on a loose paving slab and the paving slab is considered dangerous, you can hold your local authority responsible as it is their duty to carry out repairs and keep pavements safe for pedestrians. However, if you trip on a pavement with no defect, then no one can be held responsible. You may have just tripped over your own shoelaces.
