You can make a compensation claim using solicitors in Syderstone for any accident that you have which was caused by the negligence or carelessness of another person. Obviously it is easier to decide to make a claim when you have suffered an accident that is clearly the fault of someone else, such as when a car hits your car from behind. However, there are other circumstances under which you should be able to make a claim for compensation, which may not be as clear cut from the start, and here are some examples.
Slips, trips and falls
These types of accidents may at first seem to be your own fault, as it was you that slipped and fell. However, if the floor has been left wet by someone who should have cleaned it up right away (such as shop or restaurant staff), or there are not safety railings in place on an uneven staircase, you can still claim compensation. If you believe that your accident could be attributed to the actions of another person, you should still be able to claim compensation for a slip or trip accident.
Accidents caused by lack of information
If you have not been trained properly for your job, or were not given appropriate safety information about something, and this caused you to do something wrong which caused an accident, someone else may still be at fault for your injuries. Like with slips, trips and falls, this type of accident may still appear to be your own fault, but actually any person with a duty of care to you, and who should be providing you with the information and training you need to stay safe, can be considered to be at fault if there is an accident.
