Making a claim after a slip, trip or fall
Although no-one wants to sustain an injury, a slip, trip or fall can be difficult to avoid. It’s easy to become distracted when you’re out and abou and you may not notice potential hazards. However, if the incident wasn’t your fault, there may be action you can take and an injury solicitor in South Bucks may be able to help you.
If you’ve been hurt because of someone else’s conduct, they should be held responsible and you may be able to make a compensation claim against them.
If you tripped over a cracked pavement, for example, the local council may be held liable for your injuries. Alternatively, if you were in a shop and slipped on a wet floor due to a lack of warning signs, the shop owners may be forced to pay you compensation.
As slips, trips and falls can occur anywhere, you could make a claim against a person or a company. You could even make a claim against your employer if you trip or fall at work and you weren’t at fault.
Taking action with an injury solicitor in South Bucks
Depending how seriously you were hurt, you may have required emergency medical treatment. If you’re still recovering from your injuries, you may not feel ready to contact an injury solicitor in South Bucks just yet.
Luckily, this shouldn’t prevent you from obtaining compensation as most claimants are given 3 years’ in which to make a claim after being hurt. However, many people prefer to start their claims as soon as possible.
At Accident Advice Helpline we do everything we can to make the process as simple as possible. For example, we’ll handle your claim over the phone if we’re able to do so. Many of our claimants aren’t even required to go to court so this isn’t something you should need to be concerned with.
If the cost of working with an injury solicitor in South Bucks is holding you back, we can help with that too. We understand the financial impact an unexpected accident can have and we’re keen to reduce the stress associated with taking legal action.
In order to do this, we always work on a no-win, no-fee basis so you won’t have to pay anything upfront to make a claim with us.
