A world without claims on falls
When you look at claims over slips, trips and falls in Taunton Deane, there is one question you should ask yourself: “What would the world be like without them?” The reason this is an interesting question is because of the very sad answer.
Of course we are assuming that we will not suddenly live in a world where companies and organisations suddenly start taking their commitment to public safely more seriously (though that is not to say that many do not). But there will always be the few bad fish – and herein lies the problem.
But when you accept two things it is impossible to say that these compensation claims are not good things (and that does not mean just for the person making the claim). They actually provide a public service, and without them we would all be much worse off.
How many slips, trips and falls in Taunton Deane would there be
Many slips and falls come down to companies not taking their responsibilities seriously and expose the public to unnecessary risk. Plus, it is also true that the consequences of a slip or fall can have serious effects on the victim: we are not just talking about bruising here, but time off work and long term conditions.
Of course all of this stuff is regulated (hence the claims existing), but there really are only two ways to deal with the issue. The first is through representatives of the law – usually in this case local council officers. Now obviously they cannot be everywhere, and though spot checks will catch much wrong doing, at the same time it will not solve the problem.
