Will a fall enable you to make an injury claim in St Clears?
You can be the faultless victim of an accident in which you have a fall and you could sustain some nasty injuries. Falls tend to be disregarded, but if that fall was off the scaffolding on a building site, for example, it could prove to be fatal.
Alternatively, if the fall was down a flight of stairs, you could have a few broken bones. Whichever the case may be, if your fall was because of someone else then you may be able to make an injury claim in St Clears.
Falls are a common cause of injury
Slips, trips and falls are some of the most common types of accidents. They affect large numbers of people in the UK every year and can happen in several ways:
- Falling from height
- Tripping on an uneven pavement
- Slipping on a spillage
- Falling over an obstacle; and
- Falling down a flight of stairs
These are just a few ways in which a fall personal injury may occur; obviously there are many more incidents that can occur and create the need for an injury claim in St Clears.
Taking legal action
We all need to look where we are going, try to avoid spillages and obstructions. No matter how vigilant you are though, accidents still happen, and if your accident was the fault of someone else then you may be able to make an injury claim in St Clears.
In most cases, the guilty party will have some form of insurance to settle your injury claim in St Clears. Whether this be another driver, the local authority, your employer, the local restaurant or your doctor, the law says that if you have been hurt because of their actions, they should financially compensate you.
For you to be able to make a claim, you must have:
- Had the accident within the last 3 years’
- Not be to blame for the accident; and
- Needed medical treatment for your injuries
