If you’re in need of a Reading law firm to help you launch a claim for compensation because you have suffered an injury in a slip, trip or fall incident that wasn’t your fault, you might like to think about using the industry-leading no-win, no-fee service that we’ve developed here at Accident Advice Helpline. We aren’t be based in the city of Reading, but we have a very active online presence, and most people tend to think of us as their local specialist injury claim solicitor in a virtual sense.
The enormity of slip, trip and fall accidents and injuries
Slip, trip, and/or fall incidents are by far the largest single cause of injury here in the UK. They happen anywhere:
- In the home
- In the workplace
- On holiday
- On the sports field
- When you’re out shopping
- When you’re simply out walking
The cost to industry and the NHS
Not only are slips, trips and falls, the largest cause of injury overall, they also cause the more injuries in the home and in the workplace than any other type of accident. They cost the economy £512 million per annum in terms of people taking time off work, and in addition, they also cost the NHS £133 million in terms of treatments.
Slip, trip and fall injuries often cause severe injury
There is some sort of perception among many people that slip, trip and fall injuries are insignificant and simply part of the claims culture that is said to exist. However, in reality, the truth of the matter is that 95% of serious trip and fall injuries result in broken bones; particularly if the accident victim suffers from osteoporosis, the brittle bone disease. When people suffer from this condition, even the most innocuous seeming falls can result in severe injury, and if the cause of the incident is attributable to someone other than the injured person, that person is both legally and morally entitled to financial compensation, according to law.
If you were the innocent victim of any accident, and sustained an injury that you had medical treatment for, you don’t need a Reading law firm to help you claim compensation. Just talk to us at Accidnet Advice Helpline.
