London is comprised of many boroughs and districts, and one such district is Wandsworth. If you look at a map of London, you will spot it in the south-western region, not far from the centre of the city. It is famous for its prison, but its history goes back much further than 1851, when the prison was built. Around 61,500 people live here, and sometimes there is cause for one of those residents to try and claim compensation in Wandsworth.
It would be reasonable to wonder why this could be the case. After all, you should think about whether or not an accident is just that – something unfortunate no one could have foreseen – or whether someone else was to blame for it. If it is the latter, there is an increased chance that compensation could result.
Let’s look at one of the most common types of accident that can potentially happen anywhere you can think of – the act of slipping over. You might slip on something that has been spilled, or on a wet floor. You might slip on ice in the winter, or on a floor surface that is simply very slippery in itself.
Any of these instances could give rise to the chance to claim compensation, particularly if you are injured in a way that could disrupt your life in some way. For instance, you might be hurt because you slipped over on ice in the car park of the building you work in. Your employer has a duty to make sure you are always safe no matter where you are on the premises, so this is worth thinking about.
