Slips, trips and falls are perhaps among the best known accidents. After all, who hasn’t slipped on ice or tripped over a discarded object in their garden, or similar?
A lot of these accidents are minor, and can be put down to experience. But the story is very different for a lot of people who experience slips, trips and falls in the workplace, or in public places or buildings. But don’t worry, because personal injury solicitors can help you!
Slips, trips and falls can cause injury
Often, you are just walking along, minding your own business, and you fall. This might be because there is a loose paving slab that is sticking up; it could also be because the floor has been cleaned or polished, but there is no sign to warn people about it.
Where something like this happens, depending on the circumstances, you could claim compensation if you get injured.
If it happens at work, personal injury solicitors can pursue your workplace’s employers’ liability insurer for compensation. If it happens in public, on a road or pavement whose upkeep the local authority is responsible for, then the council’s public liability insurance may be responsible for your claim.
