Slips, trips and falls can happen anywhere in Pyecombe – in pubs, restaurants, shops, post offices and supermarkets. The majority of these accidents occur in situations where risks assessments have not been carried out and/or where inadequate housekeeping standards have led to hazards such as cluttered walkways and slippery floors.
The owners of public places have a duty to take steps to minimise or remove potential causes of accidents. If they have not taken their responsibilities seriously and you have suffered an injury in a preventable slip, trip or fall accident, you should seek legal advice.
Build a strong case for compensation – hire an accident lawyer
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our personal injury lawyers can provide you with the expert advice you need to make an informed decision as to whether or not to pursue your claim for compensation. If you choose to make a personal injury claim against the negligent individual or organisation, your appointed accident lawyer will guide you through every step of the claims process with the aim of helping you to recover a compensation settlement that accurately reflects the impact your injuries have had on your daily life.
To ensure you achieve the best possible outcome for your claim, your personal injury lawyer will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your accident. They will gather evidence from independent witnesses, look through CCTV footage and personally inspect the health and safety policies of the premises where your accident occurred. In doing so, they will grant you the strongest possible chance of winning your claim.
If you win your case, the compensation you receive will be divided into two main categories: general damages, which will compensate you for your pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life, and special damages, which will compensate you for your financial losses and expenses.
Your special damages settlement will include your medical expenses, transport costs, nursing care costs, childcare expenses and lost earnings. If you have suffered life-altering injuries, you will also receive compensation to cover the cost of your future losses and expenses.
