    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Ribble Valley law firm

    When people are seeking a Ribble Valley law firm, it’s often in relation to seeking compensation for a slip, trip or fall injury they’ve suffered in the home. Ribble Valley, which encompasses Clitheroe in Lancashire, is one of the most wealthy and sparsely populated areas within the county, with a high proportion of residents working from home via the Internet.

    But when the injury happens as a result of either working from home, or simply pottering around in the house, is irrelevant. The single most important factor is that the accident or circumstance that gives rise to the injury, has to be attributable to someone other than the injury victim; someone you are both willing, and able, to sue for recompense.

    Falls are often the cause of serious injury

    Slip, trip or fall accidents can result in serious injury. Broken bones are common, especially if the accident victim suffers from osteoporosis, the brittle bone disease. Falls down the stairs, (as the result of a loose stair carpet or banister rail) can also result in serious injury, as indeed can any fall if the victim bangs their head on a solid and/or sharp object. Poorly fitted stair carpets are a relatively common cause, as are uneven floors. If either is the result of work carried out by a contractor, that contractor (or their insurance company) would be liable to pay compensation.

    2.7 million people are injured in their homes every year

    Accidents in the home are more prolific than people realise; more than 2.7 million people per annum have to go to hospital for emergency treatment. 4,000 actually die as a result
