Many Leicestershire claims raised for personal injury compensation are the result of injuries that have been sustained in slip, trip and fall accidents. These types of accidents occur anywhere and everywhere – in the home, in the workplace, when you’re out shopping, or even when you’re away on holiday.
The majority of slip, trip and fall accidents are down to the fall victims themselves. They are often the result of carelessness, negligence or being in too much of a rush to get somewhere. When there is no one other than the victim to blame, it’s not possible to claim compensation unless you were to sue yourself, and there’s not much point in doing that.
The workplace is a constant source of slip, trip and fall accidents, and employers have certain duties under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to minimise this risk. Good housekeeping is the most important thing, ensuring that walkways are kept clear and that there are no fall hazards left on staircases.
Take the 30-second test regarding Leicestershire claims for slip, trip and fall injuries
For anyone thinking of raising Leicestershire claims for injuries sustained in fall incidents in the workplace, for which they believe their employer is to blame, here at Accident Advice Helpline we can help to register personal injury claims and progress them through to completion. The claims process is simple and user-friendly, and the best place to start is by taking the 30-second test that we have here on this website.
This test accomplishes two things. Initially, it checks to establish whether or not your potential claim appears to be valid. To do this, it requires you to answer certain questions relating to who was to blame for the accident, when the accident took place, what part of your body was injured and whether you received medical treatment for your injury. You answer these questions by selecting the most appropriate answers from the dropdown boxes provided.
If the answers you supply fit within the correct criteria, your claim will be validated in principle and you will be given an estimate showing you how much compensation you could expect to receive. The entire test takes on average approximately 30 seconds, hence its name. Anyone visiting the website can take it. It is totally free and doesn’t put you under any sort of obligation to proceed any further.
