    Fall personal injury


    What to do if you have a fall personal injury claim

    You can be the faultless victim of a fall personal injury just as much as being the faultless victim of any other type of personal injury, and as such may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    A fall personal injury is common

    Slips, trips and falls are some of the most common types of accidents. They affect large numbers of people in the UK every year and can happen in several ways:

    • Tripping up on an uneven pavement;
    • Slipping on a spillage;
    • Falling over an obstacle; and
    • Falling down stairs.

    These are just a few ways in which a fall personal injury may occur; obviously there are many more incidents that can occur and cause a personal injury.

    Responsibility for a personal injury claim

    We all have a responsibility to ourselves, look where we are going and try to avoid situations that might cause us harm. However, even when we are being vigilant accidents will still happen, usually because someone has not done something they should have like repaired a pavement or cleared up a spillage.

    In most cases, the responsible person or authority will have some type of insurance that covers them for such eventualities. If the accident happened in a public place, the claim would be made under public liability insurance, a policy meant to cover members of the public who are not employed by the responsible party. If the accident happened at work, the most likely insurance used would be the employer’s liability insurance, which is a legal requirement for all private employers to have. Public liability cover is usually limitless, while employer’s liability cover has to be a minimum of £5 million.

    Criteria for a personal injury claim

    For you to be able to make a claim, you must:

    • Have had the accident within the last three years;
    • Not be to blame for the accident; and
    • Have needed medical treatment for your injuries.

    How to make a fall personal injury claim

    So you have had a fall, been injured enough to need medical treatment and the fall was not your own fault – you are probably entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. To make a claim is complicated and time consuming, and if not presented in the proper manner will be rejected.
