Some people from suburban areas like East Dunbartonshire find themselves having to hunt for a personal injury lawyer because they have been injured in slips, trips and falls that were not their own fault.
Using a personal Injury lawyer in East Dunbartonshire after a fall in the street
Some people are looking for a personal injury lawyer in East Dunbartonshire because they have had a nasty fall in the street. This is usually an embarrassing experience but for many people it can also involve a serious injury. People have suffered very nasty head injuries and broken limbs from what appeared to be a minor fall in the street. When you fall in the street you land on something that is much harder than the human body and so it is inevitable that some people will end up getting badly hurt.
The best advice after a fall in the street that was not your own fault is to stay still until you have established what your injuries might be. There is no point in jumping to your feet, however embarrassed you feel. Accept offers of help from passers-by and you may need an ambulance to be called. Once you have had your injuries attended to by a medical professional you can call Accident Advice Helpline. They are a leading UK law firm who can help you to start a claim for compensation and will give you all the legal advice you need on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. You will probably be making a claim from the person or organisation that has responsibility for maintaining the road or pavement surface on which you tripped.
