Accident Advice Helpline’s injury lawyer in Teddington and slips, trips and falls
It really doesn’t matter where you live in the UK, in a big city or in a tiny little village, at some time you could be injured in an accident that was not your fault at all. Would you believe that nearly 60,000 accidents happen every week, the most common of the accidents are slips, trips and falls.
Most of the time, when someone falls over or trips up, they just get up, dust themselves off and walk away quickly feeling embarrassed, hoping that no one saw their mishap. They may have a few grazes and bruises, but apart from their pride nothing much else is hurt.
But what if:
• Your fall was from height, may be in your job in a warehouse
• Your slip was on an unsigned floor that had just been washed, it could be at the top of some stairs and you could fall to the bottom of them
• You could trip over a trailing wire in the office and bang your head on the corner of a desk as you fall
These may be what if this and what if that, but they and many more what if’s happen every single day in the UK and many faultless victims have receive some serious injuries. If you were the completely 100% faultless victim of an accident some time in the last three years, Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyer in Teddington would be interested in talking about claiming compensation for all of your suffering.
The amount of compensation you could be getting, depends on quite a lot of different factors,and there are many things to take into account, such as:
• The severity of your injury and the prospects of recovery
• The traumas the accident caused
• Loss of earnings, for the future as well if you are not going to be able to return to work
• Extra medical costs such as prescription charges and private treatment
