Have you suffered a slip, trip or fall and ended up with an injury? Such accidents can often be embarrassing, but they’re quite common. Don’t worry about the social awkwardness of being on the floor temporarily – you might have bigger worries later on, and that’s where an accident lawyer could help you claim for being injured in a trip in Vale of Glamorgan.
Slips, trips and falls: where do they happen?
Any accident lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline will be able to tell you that, every year, they deal with many slip, trip and fall claims – and the accidents themselves occur in a variety of settings.
They happen at work, for example. People fall from ladders or platforms, suffering fractures – and sometimes, severe head injuries. People also slip on wet or oily surfaces, and trip over obstacles or imperfections in floors.
They can also happen in public places, such as parks. Consider the winter weather, and what might happen if a path hasn’t been gritted in preparation for a cold spell.
Wherever it happens, if you get injured in a trip in Vale of Glamorgan, call our hotline at Accident Advice Helpline and speak to an advisor. If you qualify to claim, they will pass your details to one of our specialist claim lawyers.

Don’t worry unduly if you’re unsuccessful in your claim – your accident lawyer in Vale of Glamorgan will work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.

What you will need to do
Most claims can be processed entirely on behalf of clients without any need to attend court. Indeed, insurance companies usually prefer to settle out of court anyway – it saves them time and money.
You will need to attend an additional medical assessment, though, in order for your claim to proceed.
It’s also advisable to keep your receipts for any expenses (e.g. home helps, prescriptions), since your payout will reflect these. Why not start a file with all the information related to your claim in one place?
Call us now free on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone and find out more about making a claim.
