    Slip and fall settlement


    Slip and fall settlement

    People who are injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault often struggle afterwards – physically, mentally and financially. Do you need a slip and fall settlement?

    Personal injury often leads to:

    • Extensive medical treatment – for broken bones, head injuries, etc.
    • Time off work (which can mean loss of earnings)
    • Extra costs – taxis to hospital, home helps to do your chores, etc.

    Many people need a slip and fall settlement in order to claw back some of the expense, and ease the stress and pressure that they feel under while they recover from their accident.

    Examples of slip and fall scenarios

    Here are a few examples of what can happen:

    • In a supermarket, someone slips and falls on a recently cleaned floor that is still wet – and there are no warning signs! Injury: broken wrist
    • At a garage, someone slips and falls on some grease that the proprietor failed to ensure was cleaned up. Injury: fractured hip and severe bruising
    • In a park, in winter, someone slips and falls on some ice that is on a path because it has not been gritted. Injury: fractured skull

    In the above cases, a slip and fall settlement could be reached.
