Had a fall in the street and need solicitors in Piercebridge-on-Tees?
So often we hear of individuals such as you who have suffered a fall in the street because someone didn’t do what they should have to make sure accidents couldn’t happen. Accident Advice Helpline and our solicitors in Piercebridge-on-Tees have been called upon to help individuals just like you claim compensation for a fall that could have been avoided on the behalf of other parties.
Often accidents happen in the street because of other people’s carelessness or because obstacles have been left in the way. Regardless of how careful a person you might be sadly circumstances can arise when you encounter an accident because of the carelessness of others. Accident Advice Helpline and our solicitors in Piercebridge-on-Tees deal with claims from injured parties who have sustained injuries because of poor working practices from local authorities. But what might cause you to fall if you are walking down the street? There are many reasons. Here are just a few.
- Pavement obstructed by heavy duty equipment
- Falling masonry or debris from nearby buildings
- Poor or inadequate lighting
- Cracked or broken paving stones
- Road works encroaching on the pavement
Again this is not an exhaustive list but goes some way to illustrating the kinds of accidents that can occur when an individual such as yourself is making their way along the pavement.
Left pained and unable to function properly
As a result of a great many falls the injuries are such that they don’t necessarily manifest straight away. You might say it is similar to whiplash in that regard. Unless you break a bone or limb you might get up and walk away.
