One of the most common accidents to happen in the UK today are slips, trip or falls. Any one of these can happen to you at any place or at any time. They can be very sudden and unexpected. If this happens to you and as a result you are injured, then you should speak to the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline to assist you in making an injury compensation claim.
People assume usually that if you slip, trip or fall down you could end up having a minor injury. Maybe a few cuts and bruises and maybe just a little embarrassment.
Unfortunately this is not always the case. There are many of these accidents that result in much more severe injuries, for instance:
- Back injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Broken bones
- Cuts and bruises
- Brain injuries
- Knee injuries
- Wrist injuries
You may need to make a personal injury compensation claim, if your fall from a height, or you trip sends you into the path of oncoming traffic, the consequences of some slips, trips and falls can be horrific.
There are numerous reasons why accidents occur, they can happen in many ways but just a few examples are:
- Loose or torn flooring
- Obstacles that are in the way
- Lack of handrails on stairs, or broken handrails
- Lack of lights on stairs and in passageways
- Trailing wires
- Lack of safety boards on scaffolding
- Uneven or broken paving slabs
- Wet flooring that has no warning signs
You may be entitled to make an injury claim, if these, or anything else has caused you to be injured through no fault of your own.
Your claim would include material things such as:
- Medical costs
- Care costs if you can no longer look after yourself
- Replacement of damaged equipment and accessories
- Any other cost or loss caused by the accident
- Loss of earnings, for the future as well as past
- Travel costs
Our solicitors would examine every area of your claim to make sure that you receive a fair deal for your particular situation.
