Fallen over and didn’t bounce back? Hit the ground and didn’t jump up? Make your claim stand up with the leading experts!
At some time or another, we will all trip over and literally fall flat on our faces! Unfortunately, not many of us will jump up and carry on as if it never happened. Accidents such as trips and falls account for some of the most common reasons for hospital admissions to Accident and Emergency departments every day.
If you, or some one you are close to, have fallen or tripped over and have sought medical attention for an injury caused as a result, then you may be legally entitled to pursue a personal injury compensation claim with Accident Advice Helpline’s leading law firm in Dartford.
I fell over in the street, can I still claim?
It doesn’t matter where the accident occurred. The law states that as long as:
- the accident was caused through no fault of your own
- the accident resulted in an injury being sustained for which medical attention was sought and
- the accident occurred within the last 3 years’
then you may legally seek to claim personal injury compensation for your injury.
My accident occurred at work, what should I do?
The most important point is to seek medical attention for your injuries as soon as possible, to rule out any internal injuries and to diagnose injuries for treatment to commence.
It is also important that the injury is recorded in the accident book at your workplace. This is a legal document and it should be completed by your employer to record formally the date, time, location, cause, injury and treatment of the accident. If it is possible, obtain a copy of the entry in the accident book of your accident for your records.
Similarly, if treatment is provided at hospital, it may be a good idea to obtain a copy of any notes made at the time by medical professionals who diagnose and prescribe any treatment related to your injury.
If you are advised to refrain from working by medical professionals, obtain a medical certificate to give to your employer to ensure that correct procedures regarding sick pay are followed. This is particularly important if the injury is serious and it may result in an extensive period of time off work being needed to fully recover.
