If you have had a slip in a public place in Erewash, you’ll know it’s no laughing matter. Alongside the embarrassment of such a fall, you may also have sustained serious injuries. These can range from cuts and bruises to a broken limb, concussion or even worse. Your first priority should be to seek medical treatment, naturally. But you should also consider why the accident happened. Was it because there was an unmarked hazard such as a spillage or a wet floor from cleaning? Could the accident have been prevented in some way?
If you are convinced this shouldn’t have happened to you, and only did because someone else acted negligently, then you may have a right to claim compensation. Personal injury claims of this type may not only compensate you for the injuries sustained. You may also be able to ask for some of the financial costs of your accident to be reimbursed too.
What you can claim after a slip in a public place in Erewash
Provided it can be proven that someone else was to blame, an experienced law firm will be able to ask for loss of earnings to be taken into account if you’ve been unable to attend your usual workplace as a result.
You can be reimbursed for items such as prescriptions and travel costs to and from medical appointments. Expenses paid out for adjustments around the home to help you cope while you recover, or additional childcare, can also be repaid as part of your compensation settlement.
So you see it could well be in your best interests to consider your right to make a claim.
