Injury lawyers for Weston-under-Redcastle trips and falls
- Trips and falls can break your bones. A fall down a flight of stairs can have devastating consequences and leave you with a long period of recovery and rehabilitation.
- Potholes in the road and pavements around our towns and cities don’t always get fixed promptly these days and can present a huge hazard to pedestrians especially after dark.
- Spillages can cause nasty accidents. Be extra careful in busy cafes and restaurants. Grapes falling from the fruit display in your local supermarket can be the Manager’s nightmare. A crushed grape on a tiled floor can have a lot to answer for.
Wherever you go in the public domain there is a risk of a trip or fall. It’s important to look where you’re going and avoid the hazards in your way. If this were always possible it would be a perfect world. Unfortunately trips and falls are one of the most common causes of injury we see at Accident Advice Helpline.
Who’s to blame if you trip or fall in a public place?
That depends. If the hazard has been clearly highlighted but you ignore the warning notices then you will find it difficult to claim it was a no fault accident. If there is no warning of the hazard and you don’t see it then you have a much stronger case for claiming compensation.
Some activities, such as sporting and leisure activities, involve a degree of risk and you should be made aware of what these risks are. If you are advised not to go ahead for whatever reason but disregard this advice then, unless negligence on the part of the person responsible can be proved, you won’t have a strong case for compensation.
The advice is keep your eyes open and be aware of your surroundings. If you have a trip or fall and someone else is to blame then you need injury lawyers for Weston-under-Redcastle accident claims.
