Are you looking for an injury lawyer in Portsoy? Accidents are different, injuries are different and victims are different. They are all unique, as are the reactions different victims will have to the same injury. The only thing they have in common is that if they are injured in an accident they were not to blame for, they are entitled to use an injury lawyer in Portsoy to make a personal injury compensation claim.
An injury lawyer in Portsoy and slips, trips and falls
One of the most common accidents in the UK are slips, trips and falls in a public places or in the workplace slips, trips and falls can happen in several ways:
- You could trip up an uneven pavement; this would be the responsibility of the local authority that will have public liability insurance to cover such events.
- You could fall off a platform because of the lack of or a broken rail, this would be a heath and safety issue and depending if this happened at work or in a public place, would be covered either by employers’ liability insurance or public liability insurance.
- You could trip over an obstruction that you would not reasonably expect to be there, or slip on a spillage that should have been cleaned up, whichever it was, it was probably someone else’s fault.
If it happens at work
If a slip, trip or fall, or any other accident, happens at work, you should not worry about making a personal injury claim for compensation against your employer. By law employers have to have employers’ liability insurance so an injury lawyer in Portsoy would make the claim against the company that provides the insurance, not your employer.
If it happens in public
All public places are the responsibility of someone to maintain, to ensure that accidents do not occur. In a lot of cases, but not always, it is the local authority. They will have public liability insurance to cover such events, as do shops, parks and anywhere else the public may venture.
