Have you suffered a nasty slip, trip or fall and sustained injuries as a result?
If you have, you may be eligible to seek compensation for the pain and suffering you have experienced.
Making a successful slip, trip, or fall claim
In order to make a successful claim, you will need to prove that someone else was responsible for your accident. The occupiers of commercial and public premises have a duty of care towards you. This means that they are responsible for protecting you from accidents and injuries. If you happen to suffer injuries on their premises as a result of their negligence, you may be able to receive compensation from their insurance company.
To win compensation, you will need to supply evidence in support of your claim. Ideally, you should be able to provide:
- The date and time on which your accident occurred
- The precise location of the accident scene
- The contact details of any witnesses to your accident
- Photographs of the cause of your accident
- Medical reports detailing the nature and severity of your injuries
- Details of the location of any CCTV cameras that may have been in operation at the time of your accident
If you had to leave the scene of your accident to receive medical treatment, you may not have obtained all of the information listed above. However, if you can provide just one or two of these details, you should be able to make an accident claim.
