Slips, trips and falls can lead to a range of serious injuries, from fractures and back problems to paralysis. One minute you could be walking along fine, the next you’re in serious pain lying on the ground. But do you have the right to personal injury compensation? Here at Satchell Moran Solicitors, we can help you build a case, even if the process is complicated.
Your Right to Claim
To cut straight to the point, making a claim for slips, trips and falls is not always simple. Gathering evidence can be hard. You might not remember the exact place you fell, for instance, or forget to take photographs of any signs of neglect or disrepair that led to your accident.
What’s more, if slips or trips occur on the street, determining who to make the claim against can be challenging. The council might not be held directly responsible for an accident. That said, it is possible to make claims against specific premises such as shopping centres, hospitals and schools. Similarly, accidents at work can also be addressed. If you slip over due to a wet floor and the appropriate ‘wet surface’ signs were not used, for instance, you could have a strong case.
How to Make a Slip, Trip or Fall Claim
In order to make a strong claim, it’s important to note down any useful information at the time of the accident. Photographic evidence is even better and, if you have any eye-witnesses, be sure to take their personal details so you can get in touch. You should then contact us as soon as possible, so that we can analyse your case and get the compensation you deserve.
