If you just fell over in work on ice, can you claim is probably one of the things on your mind. We are happy to tell you that, if you have fallen on ice at work, and you are injured, you could file a personal injury claim, and our team of experts, at Accident Advice Helpline, could help you to do so.
I just fell over in work on ice, can I claim?
However, the true answer to this question rests upon the circumstances surrounding your fall. It is only if your fall came about as the result of someone else’s negligence that you can file a claim for personal injury compensation.
If you can prove that falling on the ice was not your fault, but the fault of your employer, and if you can prove that you were injured and inconvenienced as a result, we can help you secure the compensation you deserve.
What kind of injuries can you claim for when you have just fell over in work on ice?
We know that slipping on ice can result in a multitude of injuries, some a lot more serious than others. Generally speaking, it is possible to claim for any injury sustained in a slip, trip, or fall, which has a negative impact on your life.
This could include:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Muscle strains
- Painful bruising
- Psychological illness
You can also claim for loss of earnings as a result of your injuries, as well as any medical expenses accrued as a result of your fall.
Do you need to worry about claiming against your employer?
Absolutely not. If your employer is abiding by the law, then he or she will have secured liability insurance, which is exactly for this kind of thing. You will never sue your employer directly, and they cannot discriminate on you based on the fact that you have made a compensation clam, if it is an honest one.
Furthermore, you could be doing your colleagues a favour by bringing the dangerous practices that led to you fall to light, because a compensation claim will really incentivise your employers to change the way they operate for the better.
How much do you charge?
We do not charge any legal fees at the beginning of your case. We are no-win, no-fee* personal injury lawyers, who will only require a fee should we be successful in securing a settlement on your behalf.
