Accident Advice Helpline
At Accident Advice Helpline, our expert injury solicitors in Colbost handle a wide variety of slip, trip and fall claims every day of the week, and the causes of these accidents vary greatly. Sometimes our clients have been in shops or public buildings where wet and slippery floors were not adequately signed, resulting in the person falling and becoming hurt.
Building sites and road maintenance areas are also common places for accidents to occur, especially if the construction company have failed to make safe any trailing leads, fencing or holes they are digging. Even something as simple as a loose paving slab can be the cause of a serious injury if the local authority or walkway owner does not repair it.
What injuries can be claimed for?
In essence, any injury that is caused by someone else’s poor attention can be claimed for. Most commonly our slip, trip and fall claims solicitors deal with twisted or broken ankles, knee and hip injuries, as well as head and back trauma that can leave lasting damage to the victim. Even if your injury doesn’t seem that serious straight after the accident, heavy falls on hard surfaces can often cause injuries that plague the victim for years, so make a claim now in order to protect your rights in the future.
Why make a claim?
By claiming, you are bringing a sense of justice to the situation. The person or company who was responsible for maintaining the area in which you slipped or fell will be forced to implement measures and undergo training to ensure it doesn’t happen again. As well as being suitably compensated yourself for your injury, you will be helping to make sure this type of accident doesn’t happen to another innocent victim in the future.
How much is it worth?
Many slip, trip and fall claims attract hundreds or even thousands of pounds in compensation. This money can go a long way towards helping speed your recovery, by giving you the money you need to cover lost earnings as well as any cash you need to help you get to medical appointments. If you are incapacitated for a period of time, a compensation payment can allow you to get in childcare, home help or other assistance so that you can concentrate on getting better. Call Accident Advice Helpline today on 0800 689 0500 to find out if our expert injury solicitors in Colbost can help you make a claim.
