What types of claims do we handle?
Our solicitors handle a wide variety of slips, trips and falls claims for personal injury every day of the week, and the causes of these accidents vary greatly. Sometimes our clients have been in shops and the appropriate signage has not been put out to warn them of a possible slip hazard such as a slippery wet floor.
Building sites and road maintenance areas are also common places for accidents to occur, especially if the construction company have failed to make safe any trailing leads, fencing or holes they are digging. Even something as simple as a loose paving slab can be the cause of a serious injury. If it is not repaired quickly by the local authority or the owner of the walkway it puts many pedestrians at risk.
What injuries can be claimed for?
In essence, any injury that is caused by someone else’s negligence can be claimed for. Most commonly our solicitors who handle slip, trip and fall claims for personal injury deal with twisted or broken ankles, knee and hip injuries as well as head and back trauma that can leave lasting damage to the victim.
Even if your injury doesn’t seem that serious straight after the accident, heavy falls on hard surfaces can often cause injuries that plague the victim for years, so make a claim now in order to protect your rights in the future. Remember, claims need to be made within 3 years of the accident.
By claiming, you are bringing justice to yourself and the situation. The person or company who was responsible for maintaining the area in which you slipped or fell will be forced to implement measures and undergo training to ensure it doesn’t happen again. As well as being suitably compensated yourself for your injury, you will be helping to make sure this type of accident doesn’t happen to another innocent victim in the future.
