Stevenage is one of several places in England that qualifies as both a town and as a borough. You’ll come across it on a map if you look in the central part of Hertfordshire. Its population reached around 86,000 in 2014, although this was an estimated figure. Stevenage personal injury claims do occasionally have cause to take place, although this is still quite rare when compared to the number of people who live and work here.
Personal injuries can relate to any kind of injury suffered by an individual. However, there is a difference between ‘regular’ injuries – those that occur through simple bad luck or inattention by the injured person – and those caused by other people. It is this latter group that may sometimes lead to injury claims being made.
How can you tell whether you could make such a claim?
You may have clear evidence to support the idea that someone else caused your injury. You could have been crossing the road at a proper crossing and a driver may have struck you because they didn’t see their traffic light was red, indicating they should stop. On the other hand, you may have been injured at work because your employer neglected to give you proper manual handling training that could have prevented a back injury taking place.
As you can see, there are many situations that could potentially lead to personal injuries happening. Everyone is aware of the slips, trips and falls that can happen virtually anywhere. If you enter a shop and you slip over because the floor is wet, you might have a chance to claim. The same applies if you trip over a raised carpet edge in a shop, as this should not have happened.
