If you’re based in the North Somerset village of Wraxall, you’re lucky to live in a beautiful part of the world that’s steeped in fascinating local history.
Unfortunately, that attractiveness doesn’t make it immune from things like accidents at work and slip, trip, and fall mishaps, and thus it is of little surprise that compensation solicitors in Wraxall are in demand.
These kinds of incidents pose a more widespread problem than you may have thought. In fact, across all economic sectors, slips, trips and falls are the single largest source of accidents, from office work to heavy manufacturing. These mishaps are behind almost a quarter of all accidents at work.
Here are some other figures:
- More women have a slip, trip and fall accident at work than for any other reason
- Among those aged 55-64, a third of accidents at work are down to falls on the same level. For those aged 65 or older, it’s nearly half (45%.)
What’s more, health and safety experts say that while falls from height caused more fatalities than any other single cause, more serious injuries to staff were caused by slips and trips than anything else. Over a third (35%) of cases of people being off work for a month or longer were down to these accidents.
So the consequences can be severe, from a concussion to fractured bones. And slips, trips, and falls can not only happen to you at work but in public places as well, from supermarkets to swimming pools or on pavements.
If your mishap took place no more than three years ago, and you can prove someone else was to blame, you could be legally entitled to personal injury compensation.
