Reasons why you should claim compensation for personal injuries sustained from a slip, trip or fall
A slip, trip or fall could happen at any time, but if it happens when you’re in a shop because of a hazard, for example, or in a restaurant where cabling isn’t secured properly, this is an accident that could have been avoided. There are a number of reasons why you should consider making a personal injury claim, and we’ve outlined some of the reasons below.
1. The injuries themselves
Personal injuries can range from minor to very serious and can have a devastating effect on our everyday lives. Whilst compensation may not be able to make up for the injuries you have received, you might be able to make a claim for pain and suffering caused by a personal injury.
2. Being unable to work
Personal injuries often involve time off work and, if you are away from work for a long period of time, you may suffer a major loss of earnings. Not all employers offer sick pay, and if you are self-employed, a personal injury can have a huge effect on your business and could also damage relationships with clients through not being able to fulfil jobs. Claiming compensation for a loss of earnings can help you get back on your feet and ensure that there’s one less thing to worry about whilst you recover.
3. Additional care costs
If you have children or care for a relative, you may find that you are no longer able to do so whilst recovering from a personal injury. If you have had to seek additional help to carry out your usual activities, this may be an area where you can receive compensation and ensure that you’re not left out of pocket.
