Had a slip, trip or fall in Frome?
Slips, trips and falls are the most common kind of personal injury that a lawyer in Frome tends to comes across. We believe there are many reasons for this. Frome is a dated Somerset village which is built on high ground; this means a large percentage of the streets are incredibly uneven and with so much of the pavements being authentic Georgian roads they are protected and so cannot be touched by councils.
This means street hazards can be left unrepaired in many areas of Frome and this is when people incur injuries. If your trip happened on one of the protected pavements due to an uneven edge, cracked stone, broken curb and there was no signage to give notification of this, then you may be able to claim compensation and a lawyer in Frome could help you.
To give your claim the best chance of success, it is best to give your lawyer in Frome as much evidence surrounding your accident as possible in order to prove that your personal injury was not your fault. Our methods recover clients over £35 million each year and the more information we have, the better the case we can build.
Making a claim with a lawyer in Frome
A claim for compensation should be made as soon as possible and there are many reasons for this.
Firstly, it is better to relay all information to us while it is still fresh in your mind. This will mean that nothing will be missed out. What may seem initially extremely minor may turn out to have a huge bearing on your claim.
The sooner you make contact with a lawyer in Frome, then the sooner you receive the advice most beneficial to assist your case. For example, the more receipts and documents we have to provide evidence of outgoings, the better.
You may make many trips to the GP before you contact Accident Advice Helpline – if these trips are via public transport and you also receive prescriptions then these are things we can cover – but we need to know of them and have the evidence for them.
There is a 3 year time limit on most accident claims, apart from those involving industrial disease, so it’s essential that you take action within this period.
