    Slips, trips and falls in Suffolk Coastal

    Doing things on the cheap

    The reality is that many slips, trips and falls in Suffolk Coastal are due to companies trying to cut costs. This is simply the nature of companies – to improve their bottom line – and sometimes it is not very ethical because they cut corners that harm ordinary people. People like you.

    Heath and safety standards is one way in which companies cut corners even though they shouldn’t. Whether it is just not making sure that areas are clear and safe, not maintaining floors, or so on, this all comes at a cost to them. So not making sure these things are fixed is simply cheaper. 

    However, though this is immoral, it is also unethical, and companies are told that they have to make sure that they provide safe environments for their customers and their staff. But ensuring this happens and that they meet these standards is a different matter.

    Cutting costs is not allowed if it causes slips, trips and falls in Suffolk Coastal

    There are ways in which checks are done. Local authorities have some responsibility for example, and many of them do enforce and check on health and safety issues. However, they cannot be everywhere all the time, so it is obvious that this will not bring everyone up to compliance. This is just a reality of the world and there is little that can be done about that.

    Another way to hold them accountable is for people who are injured to make a claim. In this way it is ensured that wrong doing does not go unpunished and that they are held accountable. It will also have the effect of making sure that mistakes don’t happen again. If claims cost the company more than doing what they should have been doing, then they will change.

    Accident Advice Helpline balances those costs

    If you have had any slips, trips and falls in Suffolk Coastal, then it is not only your right to make a claim, but it could be argued that it is also your responsibility. After all, if no one made a claim, what would make the companies change their behaviour?

    It does not mean that this is the only reason you should go forward, as there is nothing wrong with going ahead for compensation – it is after all just what you are owed. But keep in mind that you are making a claim and at the same time doing a service.
