Devizes is a market town in Wiltshire which has a record of early dissenting preachers and churches. One church, St. Mary’s Chapel, sometimes known as the Congregational Church was founded on Northgate Street in 1776. They regularly had congregations of over 500 in the early 19th century but the church has now been converted into one house and six apartments.
If you live in Wiltshire, or anywhere else, you are likely to know someone who has been involved in a slip, trip or fall even if it is just tripping up an uneven paving slab. Slips, trips and falls are among the most common of accidents in the UK and many of them are more embarrassing than injurious.
That is not always the case though, very serious injuries can be sustained in falls from height, trips into glass, and slips into traffic. A slip, trip or fall of this magnitude could mean you are entitled to make a personal injury claim if the accident happened through the fault of someone else.
Injuries that can be sustained
If some else’s negligence has caused to you have a slip, trip or fall, there are no end of injuries that you could sustain, just a few are:
- Brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Knee injuries
- Cuts and bruises
- Broken bones
Some of these injuries can be life changing and if the accident that caused them was not your fault, you may want to make a personal injury claim.
The reasons slip, trip and falls happen
The list of ways these accidents could happen is endless, but a few suggestions are:
- Trailing wires
- Loose carpets
- Lack of handrails on stairs
- Unlit stairs
- Wet floors
- Lack of safety boards on scaffolding
If these, or anything else has caused you to be injured through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to make an injury claim.
