Slip injury – FAQs before hiring an injury claim solicitor in Houghton Le Spring

What sort of injuries can I claim for?

Slip injury claims can involve a very wide range of injuries. Broken arms and wrists are common as we often put out our arms to save ourselves as we fall and so these parts of our body take the full weight of the impact. For the same reason, dislocated thumbs and hand injuries are also common. If our leg slipped to the side at an odd angle then an ankle or leg injury can be suffered and some of these can be very serious. A compound fracture of the ankle could be suffered and this is where the bones are so badly broken that they stick out of the skin. Of course, if you hit your head then a head injury is also a possibility and this can range from mild concussion to major brain damage. It is also common to hurt your back as you slip or land on the floor.

Who do I claim from?

The personal injury lawyer specialists at Accident Advice Helpline will help you with this. They will help you to establish exactly who was to blame for your accident and then you will claim from that person or organisation.

If you fell at work then you may be claiming from your employer because it is their responsibility to provide you with a safe working environment. If they have not done this then you may be able to start your claim against them. Some employers are to blame because they did not take steps to prevent a floor surface in a work place becoming contaminated. Other employers are to blame because they had not introduced a safe system of clearing up contamination.

If you slipped in a public building then you may be able to claim from whoever has responsibility for making that building safe.

What can I do if my accident was caused by cleaning?

It is sadly quite common for slip claims to be caused by the cleaning process itself. You can still make a claim if this is the case because the cleaning task should have been completed in a way that did not present a trip hazard.
