Have you ever been a victim to a slip, trip or fall in public and then not claimed on any of your injuries? You may say yes. Regardless of how big or small an accident is the concept still remains the same. If the accident was not your fault and you have suffered as a result then you could be entitled to some compensation.
Making a Gedling accident claim doesn’t have to be a stressful ordeal as so many people are out to help you. Making do with your injuries is not fair so by making a claim you are standing up for yourself and getting the compensation money you need if your injury has put you out of work.
What Hazards Cause Slips, Trips And Falls?
There is a very long list of potential hazards when you actually think about what could cause an accident. A common hazard that causes many accidents is broken tiles on a footpath. Tripping over broken tiles could result in broken bones so the injuries can be very painful. Just as painful would be tripping from a pothole.
Not all hazards are clearly visible which is why measures are put in place to flag up the fact they are there. Wet patches are a main culprit if they are not marked with a wet floor sign. In addition cables running along the floor with no hazard tape can also be a Gedling accident claim.
Who Does The Gedling Accident Claim Go Against?
When making a Gedling accident claim the responsible party can vary. It purely depends on where the accident happened. If the accident happened on a high street it is likely the defending party will be the local council. Yet if the accident occurs within a store or office building the claim will be put against the head office or owners.
Being involved in a slip, trip or fall is not something you should be embarrassed about. As a matter of fact it should be the other party that should be embarrassed. Making a claim for your injuries is a right you have because you have suffered because of someone else.
