Slips, trips and falls in public places
At one point in our lives, we’ve all had that ‘embarrassing fall’. Whether you were walking along the street and tripped over a broken part of the pavement and suffered a fall on your face, or if you were walking down stairs in a museum, café or other public place and taken a slip on a wet step, you will know the feeling. However, these kinds of accidents can in fact be compensated for. Because they are not your fault and have been caused by circumstances outside of your control, you could have grounds to make a claim through our personal injury lawyer in Sparkwell.
When accidents take place in public places, the responsibility lies with the owners of that space, or the council. This means that if you have been involved in a similar situation where you have sustained injuries, but it wasn’t your fault, you can make a claim for compensation through a personal injury lawyer in Sparkwell.
The injury stays after the embarrassment wears off
In many of these embarrassing situations, once the embarrassment of the fall has worn off, you can be left with a bad injury which requires medical assistance. Sometimes, the injury can be more serious than you originally thought, and it may require a procedure.
This is where compensation can come in really handy. If you receive a good enough pay out, you can support yourself with private medical care for years to come. Regardless of how you wish to spend your settlement pay out, a personal injury lawyer in Sparkwell can help you on the road to getting there.
