You can make Wycombe claims for slips, trips and falls that you have sustained due to the negligence of another person, wherever these accidents have occurred. Many people struggle to work out whether or not they have a good case for compensation when they have suffered a slip, trip or fall and this is because these types of accidents may seem to be the fault of the person who has fallen rather than anyone else, because they were perhaps not watching where they were going.
However, if the accident can be attributed to another person then a good injury lawyer will be able to help you to make a claim against them. Here are some of the types of slips, trips and falls that you can claim for.
Slipping on a wet floor
If you are in a shop, restaurant or other public building, it is the job of the management and staff who work in this building to ensure that the floors are kept clean and dry so that they are safe for customers to walk around on. If you slip on a wet floor, which either has not been cleaned up or has not been clearly signposted, then you may have a good case for compensation.
Falling on steps without adequate railings
If you are climbing or descending stairs, you should always have an adequate bannister or railing to hold onto in case you lose your footing. Any building or place of interest which does not have an adequate railing, and which you trip and fall because of, is liable to pay you compensation for your injuries.
Tripping over clutter
Again in shops, restaurants and public places, aisles and areas where people are walking around should be kept completely clear so that you are not likely to trip over anything and fall. If you do trip over clutter, you may be able to sue the management of the building for your injuries.Open Claim Calculator
