If there’s one kind of accident that most of us are familiar with, it’s the slip and fall, or trip and fall. After all, who hasn’t fallen over at some point in their life?
Did your fall lead to injury?
Some slips or trips and falls don’t cause injury, which comes as a relief to the person who fell. But others do lead to injuries, such as twisted or broken ankles, broken arms, and even head and spinal injuries.
They can happen anywhere, too. In any one year, an accident solicitor will deal with claims fall injury claims in Wrexham that have happened in the high street, in public parks, in shops, in hotels – and in the workplace.

If you get injured at work, you could put in a compensation claim against your employer. It is your employer’s duty to ensure that your working environment is safe, and if you get injured at work through no fault of your own, then it could be argued that your employer hasn’t ensured your safety in the workplace.
Some people worry about making a claim against their employer, but there’s no need to worry. They have employers’ liability insurance, which is for the very purpose of paying compensation in accident cases – and if they were to discriminate against you because you claimed, then it would be against the law.
