    If you are injured in an accident that was not your fault, you may want to use a personal injury lawyer in Kirbymoorside to claim the compensation UK law says you are entitled to.

    Slips, trips and falls

    Some of the most common types of accidents in the workplace and public areas are slips, trips and falls. These accidents can occur in many ways, but one of the most common is because of uneven paving slabs. Other causes include:

    • Obstacles;
    • Unlit stairs;
    • Stairs with no handrails;
    • Wet flooring;
    • Loose carpet;
    • Spillages; and
    • Trailing wires.

    Employees have a right to expect their workplace to be a safe environment in which to work, and you also have a right to expect public places to be safe. The responsible party has a duty of care to ensure that they are. If you suffer a slip, trip or fall, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim using a personal injury lawyer in Kirbymoorside.

    The damages awarded

    The damages you are awarded will depend on the severity of your injuries, and you should not underestimate how serious these can be. Some of the more common injuries are:

    • Sprains;
    • Cuts;
    • Bruises;
    • Brain injuries;
    • Broken bones; and
    • Back injuries.

    How much compensation you will receive depends on how bad your injury is. It will also depend on the effects your injury has on your life, therefore affecting what special expenses can be claimed for. These can be:
