A personal injury claim using injury lawyers in Tongue
Slips, trips and falls are one of the most common types of accidents that happen in the UK. They affect large numbers of people every year and can happen in several ways:
- Falling from height such as scaffolding;
- Tripping up on an uneven pavement;
- Slipping on a spillage (oil can be particularly slippy);
- Falling over an obstacle that should not have been there; and
- Falling down stairs when there are no or broken handrails.
These are just a few ways a slip, trip or fall accident may occur — obviously, there are many more incidents that can happen and cause a personal injury claim, in which case you might want to use injury lawyers in Tongue.
Whose fault is it?
We should all look where we are going and try to avoid situations that might endanger us. However, even when we are being vigilant accidents will still happen, usually because someone has not done something they should have like repaired the pavement, or moved the obstacle. In most cases, the responsible person or authority will have some type of insurance that covers them for these eventualities, such as:
- Public liability for accidents in public places — there is no limit on the cover these policies provide; and
- Employers’ liability for accidents at work — legally these have to start at a minimum cover of £5 million, but most companies start at £10 million.
