Slips trips and falls in the retail and wholesale industry
A relatively large percentage of the population of Monmouth is employed in the retail and wholesale industries; 19.5% of Monmouth’s population, as opposed to only 16.3% of the whole population in Wales. It therefore comes as no surprise that one of the biggest causes of injuries that we tackle here at Accident Advice Helpline on behalf of our clients, are related to slip, trip and fall accidents. If you need Monmouth accident at work compensation, talk to us today.
The blame must lie with a third party
The large bulk of slip, trip and fall injuries happen due to carelessness or negligence, or even clumsiness on the behalf of the accident victim, and in these circumstances there is no point in raising a claim for compensation; not unless you’re prepared to pay yourself, which, let’s face it, would be a pretty pointless exercise.
It’s only where the blame for the accident or incident can be pointed at a third party, that it is practical to consider launching a claim. It is this third party who will be pursued for payment; or strictly speaking (in the terms of a business that employs people) the third party’s insurance company.
The full range of factors to consider
The full range of factors that need to be in place in order to qualify any claim for compensation include:
- The blame must lie with a third party
- The injury must be a reasonably significant one
- The injury must have taken place in the last three years
- Medical proof of the injury will be required
Monmouth accident at work compensation claims for slip, trip, and fall injuries
Over half of all the serious injuries that happen in the workplace are caused by slips, trips, and falls. As well as the potential musculoskeletal injury that such an accident can cause, there may be other injuries to consider too; for example colliding with on-site transport, or on-site machinery.
But whatever the nature of your Monmouth accident at work compensation claim, you can check out how much compensation it could be worth by using the HOW MUCH calculator that you’ll find on our website. It will only take about 30 seconds of your time.
