Have you slipped or tripped in Stoke-on-Trent
If you live in Stoke or the surrounding area then you will be very well aware that people love to go up Hanley (duck), especially on a market day. With so many wonderful places to visit, and some fantastic boutiques to lose yourself in, it really is a day out. If you can finish it off with an oatcake or big bowl of lobby then all the better. However, a great day can be ruined by an accident. Have you slipped or tripped in Stoke-on-Trent and been left injured through no fault of your own? If so, call our team now.
Such compensation can help ensure that you are not at a financial loss as a result of your accident or the injuries that you suffered as a result.
How accident and injury claims can help
If you consider a standard slip and fall accident that could happen in any public place you can start to appreciate why compensation might be welcome.
Imagine you slip over a wet patch on the floor in a supermarket. You may be lucky enough to just slip, or you may find that you do fall and land awkwardly. You may twist your ankle or knee, you could break a bone, you might even dislocate your shoulder. Some of these injuries can be quite severe and certainly very painful.
Compensation could be very helpful
Obviously no amount of money is going to change the fact that you have been injured, nor will it really compensate you for any pain you have experienced. However, it can help you with the financial losses such injuries will inevitably cause.
If you break a bone, for example your leg, then you will no doubt have to take some time off work. It may be that you only have to take the time off to be treated, but even this can result in the loss of a day’s wage. You most certainly will not be able to drive whilst your leg is recovering and therefore you may have to rely on public transport or even private taxis to get you about. This will rapidly become expensive.
Shopping will become difficult – pushing a trolley with a broken leg is no easy task. This means you may turn to shopping online for assistance, which brings with it its own additional charges.
