It is estimated that over 3 million accidents happen every year in the UK, and that over a third of those are slip, trip and fall accidents. From the point of view of making a personal injury claim in Brynaman, all accidents are the same, whether it is a:
- Slip, trip and fall accident
- Road traffic accident
- Accident at work
- Food poisoning
- Holiday accident
- Accident at school
They all come within the remit of personal injury claims, as long as it was not the injured party that caused it.
The rules for making a personal injury claim in Brynaman
UK law is quite clear about the rules an accident needs to comply with to be able to make a personal injury claim in Brynaman:
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
- You must have sustained injuries in the accident
- Your injuries must have needed medical attention
- The accident must have happened some time in the last three years
Apart from some variations to the time limits, these rules have to be strictly adhered to if you want to claim compensation.
The seriousness of slip, trip and fall accidents
These types of accidents can be much more serious than people realise. They do not just involve falling over in the street or something similar. It could be that a victim falls from a height because of a fault on a scaffold, or they could trip over an obstacle that should not have been there and it depends how they land and what they land on, as to how serious their injuries will be.
The number of serious injuries that happen in a slip, trip or fall accident are very high and for some people it is the end of their life.
Most of these accidents could be avoided if only people took more care. Health and safety matters are not issues that only relate to work places, every place open to the public must also ensure it is a safe environment for all concerned, whether they are customers, workers or visitors.
