Causes of slips, trips or falls
Everyone knows that if you have had a slip, trip or fall accident in the last three years then you are likely to be able to make a Pontllanfraith no win no fee claim for compensation. This is because if someone else has been responsible for an accident which has left you with some form of personal injury then you are legally entitled to seek financial compensation for your pain and suffering.
However, many people wonder precisely how so many people can be injured each year in slip, trip or fall accidents that require Pontllanfraith no win no fee claims to be made. Although, we have to admit some people are just that clumsy, there are multiple examples where such accidents are caused as a result of the negligence of other people.
For example, when it comes to slip-based Pontllanfraith ‘no win, no fee’ claims these are commonly caused as a result of poor maintenance in public buildings or work places. For example, if you work in a kitchen environment it may be that beverages or other liquids are spilt on the floor. If there is no facility for these to be cleaned up then liquids pooled on the floor can present a slipping hazard to anybody within that environment.
Equally, many public buildings that are open to the public do not have facilities to ensure that the floor areas are kept free from pooled water. One classic example is shops where members of the public may tread mud and rain water in to shop fronts as they enter. If the floor is not regularly wiped, or non slip matting is not put down, then the owners of these units may have Pontllanfraith ‘no win, no fee’ claims made against them if people are injured.
Trips are also common in public areas, specifically external pathways and walkways. Uneven or broken paving slabs and tarmacs are often the biggest culprits, though so too are raised ironworks that have not been appropriately signed. In such situations those in charge of the area, or the road works taking place, have a legal duty of care to ensure that members of the public are not put at risk of injury. Failure in this regard can result in Pontllanfraith ‘no win, no fee’ claims being made.
Finally, falls can be quite common as well, especially where there is lack of maintenance. A wobbly or lose handrail can result in someone falling down the stairs. Failure to secure a handrail in a disabled toilet can also have disastrous consequences and lead to a severe personal injury occurring.
