If no one said anything
We live in a world where corporations hold massive power over us. Thankfully we have rights as individuals, citizens and consumers to safe guard us from the powerful – but rights do not mean anything if we do not use them. If you’ve suffered an accident that was not your fault then you have rights.
If we look at all the slips, trips and falls in Stroud, what we can see with many of our clients is that negligent companies are not taking their responsibilities seriously. To cut corners they do not create safe environments where people can come and be safe from injury.
There are a few ways in which the standard is enforced. One will be through local council health and safety officers, performing checks to make sure that everything is up to code. But let us be realistic: they can’t be everywhere. So there will always be companies that slip through the cracks – that is just the way it is.
Too many slips, trips and falls in Stroud
There are other ways though, and that is through people exercising their rights after they have had a slip, trip or fall. If people have been injured because of this type of negligence, then it is in the power of the person to seek compensation; this is the way that the law creates checks and boundaries to protect everyone.
The thing is though that if no one actually took their rights seriously and made a claim, then there would be less incentive for companies to remove hazards from the public space. And we all know that companies do not need much pushing to cut corners and protect their profits.
Accident Advice Helpline stand with you
This is why it is a positive thing that so many people are making claims over slips, trips and falls in Stroud. Remember that it creates an incentive for companies to take their responsibilities seriously. This is a positive thing that helps everyone.
On the flip side, if no one made claims then there would be a whole lot more hazards in the world, and the risk of injury to everyone would go up to unacceptable levels which would really be a terrible state of affairs.
You do not have to make a claim because you want to make the world a better place (that is just a bonus) – going for a claim to get the compensation you are owed is more than acceptable.
