Are you thinking of claiming for injuries and wondering how much compensation is paid for a trip?
Whilst a trip or a slip may seem like a relatively minor issue, and in many cases will only result in the bruising of one’s pride, if you are unfortunate it can result in a surprisingly severe injury.
For instance, if a trip happens to result in a bad bone break or significant muscular damage, then an unfortunate and surprising event can well lead to significant pain, discomfort and inconvenience to your daily life for weeks or even months to come.
If this sounds like a situation that you have fallen victim to in the recent past, and if your trip or slip was somebody else’s fault then you may not know that you are in fact entitled to seek compensation for the physical pain and subsequent problems and issues which result from your injury.
