Slips, trips and falls can cause you a lot of problems, ranging from the annoying to the debilitating. Whatever the result of your accident, personal injury solicitors in Cookham Dean can process your compensation claim, provided the accident was caused by someone else.
The aftermath of a slip, trip or fall
When you have a slip, trip or fall accident, things can be difficult. For a start, your injuries may prevent you from participating in the usual everyday things you do – things such as taking the dog for a walk, taking the kids to school, or cooking dinner. Driving to the shops may also be out of the question while you recover.
You could also be unable to work, which means you might lose income. This, along with the frustration that is caused by not being able to accomplish all your other tasks, can lead to feelings of stress and depression.
Solicitors in Cookham Dean can help
Slips, trips and falls that cause injury may mean you are eligible for compensation. If your accident happened at work, it may be because your employer failed to ensure that safeguards were in place.
If your accident happened in a public place, it could be because the local authority responsible for the upkeep of the pavements has failed to ensure that, for example, a loose paving slab was fixed back into position.
Basically, if your accident led to personal injury, and it was someone else’s fault, you could be eligible to claim compensation through solicitors in Cookham Dean.
If you don’t win
Of course, eligibility to claim doesn’t necessarily mean that you will win your case. But in this unfortunate event, at least you won’t have to worry about fees; all our solicitors in Cookham Dean work on a no-win, no-fee basis.
If your case is successful
If you do win, you will receive a payment of compensation for the accident and injury, and the sum you are paid will include an element for reimbursement of expenses and losses.
Following an accident, many people lose income because they have to take time off work. In addition to this, they may need to pay for prescriptions, public transport, and a home help. If you keep your receipts, payslips and records of your medical treatment, it will help solicitors in Cookham Dean to process your claim.
