Injury lawyers in Thaxted
Most people have suffered a nasty slip or fall at some point in their life. Many just put accidents such as these down to their own clumsiness or absentmindedness, brush themselves down and get on with their lives, even if they have to recover from quite a nasty injury as a result of their fall. Unfortunately, not everybody is aware that a slip or a fall could give rise to a claim for compensation if it occurred as a result of the negligence or irresponsible behaviour of an individual or organisation.
If you are injured as a result of a fall after not looking where you were going, or as a direct consequence of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you’ll have a tough time claiming compensation. But if you were injured in a slip or fall that was the result of a third party’s negligence, you might be able to use the services of injury lawyers in Thaxted to sue for a payout.
Slips, falls and injury lawyers in Thaxted
No matter where you suffered a slip or a fall, if it was not your fault then you may have a case for a payout. If you were strolling along a pavement and tripped over a loose paving stone, you may be able to sue your local authority if it has responsibility for the upkeep of the walkway you were injured on. If you were to slip on either a spilled liquid or food staff on a supermarket floor, you may be able to take action against the owner of the store for failing to clear up the offending mess or safely cordon it off. If you were to take a tumble after catching your foot on some loose flooring on the staircase of a property you rent, there’s a chance you might be able to use the services of injury lawyers in Thaxted to get recompense from your landlord.
Whatever the circumstances surrounding your mishap, don’t take it lying down if it was not caused by you.
