Slip, trip and fall claim in Cherwell
When walking nearly anywhere throughout the day, we stick to the pavements where it is safest for pedestrian traffic, away from the cars and other vehicles and dangers which could cause someone serious injuries.
However, the pavement isn’t as safe as one would hope. Accidents can happen anywhere, and slipping or tripping on a pavement is no exception. Though this may not sound serious, it can be and, if the accident wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to make a slip, trip and fall claim in Cherwell, in order to get compensation.
Common injuries sustained from pavement slips and trips
Bruises aren’t the only things that could happen when you hit the pavement after a slip or trip. It may be be the first thing most people think of when imagining a fall, as well as a scrape or some lacerations, but the real thing can be far more serious.
The ground can be quite hard and, with the force of a fall, someone could easily sustain broken bones and serious lacerations that could require surgery. Depending on how someone lands, life threatening injuries such as concussions, or other brain and spinal injuries could result from these incidents. When something like this happens, and the accident wasn’t your fault, our team of solicitors is here to help if you are eligible to make a slip, trip and fall claim in Cherwell.
