    Fall injury compensation claims in the UK

    Surgeons and Innkeepers paved the way for the fall injury compensation claims in the UK

    Negligence has not always been a major part of English law and it was not until 1825 that it truly became a part of the established legal system and thus led the way for UK injury compensation claims solicitors.

    Negligence falls under a part of the law called tort and was originally designed to create accountability for surgeons and innkeepers to make sure they worked by a standard that ensured the safety of those they provided a service for.

    Fall injury compensation claims in the UK solicitors owe much of their success today because of these early court cases and the precedents that were set in them. English law works very much on the outcome of court cases. The victories won in a court case set what is referred to in law as precedent, it means if you were to go to court and the facts of the case you are currently fighting were similar to the earlier case the barrister can sight the earlier case as being similar to the current case. This is important because then the barrister can say he would like the judge to give the same outcome that was given in the earlier case because a precedent had been set as in the earlier case.

    The early laws governing these surgeons and innkeepers, was incredibly tough and was quite restrictive. It did however become more relaxed in later years as the industrial revolution gathered momentum. The reason it was relaxed was to encourage economic growth. In more recent times there has been a tightening up of the precedents governing the law of negligence.

    Fall injury compensation claims in the UK solicitors are moving in favour of the claimants and calling industry to be accountable for its actions and as a result of this ensuring that industry and organisations are providing safe environments for employees and for those that they provide a service for.
