Have you ever walked along a high street, tripped over a paving slab and then continued walking? You will probably say yes. Believe it or not that could potentially be a compensation claim. If you are injured by tripping over an unsafe and unmarked obstacle in a public place you could be entitled to some compensation money.
Any accident whether it is a big one or a small could be a claim with solicitors in Westleton.
Everyday hazards you wouldn’t think were claims
Tripping over on the high street can be dangerous. Falling on to the hard floor can be painful and may in extreme circumstances end up in a broken bone. This injury was sustained through no fault of your own so in effect solicitors in Westleton could make a claim against the responsible party for maintaining the footpath.
Other hazards which you may not be aware of include cables across the floor at a funfair. Although they may be covered in rubber the fact remains that they are still a trip hazard and they could also provide an electric shock if they are faulty. Though this isn’t something you would necessarily think about an accident could still happen.

Many people put up with the pain because they are unaware that they could make a claim so just by asking the question you may be pleasantly surprised. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and the severity of the injuries sustained the amount of compensation money can vary but it can still contribute to compensating the costs associated with your injuries.
