Over 3 million accidents happen in the UK every year, many of them being slips trips and falls. This is a common way to sustain soft tissue injuries, such as a whiplash injury in Bridgend. Most people think that falling over is very minor,and usually it is. Victims just get up and walk away, more embarrassed than anything else. But if you happen to fall awkwardly, and perhaps knock your head as you go down, it is very easy to sustain some nasty injuries. You might end up with a whiplash injury in Bridgend.
Injuries scenarios in a slip, trip or fall
The consequences of some of these accidents can be very serious. Here are just some of the scenarios that could happen:
- You could slip on a spillage on a factory floor and be thrown into moving machinery.
- You could trip on an uneven paving slab and be thrown into the path of oncoming traffic.
- You could fall down some stairs that have a broken handrail.
These sorts of accidents happens every day, and sometimes the victims are lucky to survive them. Some of the victims might sustain injuries such as a whiplash injury in Bridgend. Others could have brain injuries that would change their lives (and those of their families) forever.
If the accident was the fault of someone else, you may be able to claim compensation. Call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you can claim.
Only 3 out of 10 victims exercise this legal right, when really all victims of accidents caused by someone else should claim what they are entitled to.
Are there companies that can help make a claim?
There are two main types of companies that can help victims to make a personal injury claim – claim management companies and law firms. Claim management companies can act as a middleman and do most things a law firm can do, but they cannot act as your solicitor and they cannot represent you in court.
