When it comes to personal injury, the most common causes are trips, slips, and falls.
These accidents cover a broader range than you may have realised, from broken bones and sprains to spinal and brain injuries.
Potentially, the consequences of an accident like this can be devastating, from reduced mobility to never being able to work again or having to do a very different kind of work.
While you may be tempted put a trip, slip or fall down to your own clumsiness, something else outside your control may well have been the cause. In fact, most of these incidents are due to things like:
- Badly kept pavements
- Floors which are not marked as being wet
- Snow and ice which has not been properly cleared
Contact Accident Advice Helpline if this has happened to you
Landowners and councils are obliged to keep their property or land to a reasonable standard so that it is safe. If you can show that there has been neglect, or a failure to do this, you may well be fully entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
Contrary to popular belief, this is not about being out for what you can get, or what some term the “compensation culture”, but about seeking the redress for what is rightfully yours.
Apart from anything else, you may well have had extra expenses for travel to hospital or you may have lost money because you have been less able to work.
