Do you need to make a claim after falling down stairs?
Unfortunately, falling down stairs tends to be a fairly common cause of injuries. As it’s easy to trip or stumble down a set of stairs, many people are injured this way each year. In some cases, it may be a straightforward accident and not anyone’s fault which means that it’s unlikely that you can make a claim.
However, in some cases, someone or something else may be responsible for a claimant’s fall, in which case they could go on to make Dundee personal injury claims. If, for example, you were at work and fell down broken or damaged steps, your employers could technically be held responsible and you could potentially make a claim against them.
Similarly, if you were out shopping and the stairs were wet but there was no notice to warn you and you fell, you could make a claim against the shop or shopping centre responsible.
As people can suffer a range of injuries from this type of accident, the amount of compensation awarded does vary. In most cases, the amount of compensation you will receive when making a claim will depend of the type of injuries you actually sustained. If you twisted your ankle, for example, you may receive less compensation than if you suffered a serious head injury.
