Injured in a Trip or Fall?
As personal injury solicitors we know that one of the most common accidents that can happen to anyone is tripping or falling. Often you will think or be told by others that tripping or falling and injuring yourself is ‘just one of those things’ but we know that if you have been injured in a trip or a fall then you should not have to suffer in silence.
If you have been injured and it was not your fault then contact us to see if you have a no win no fee claim. To claim for compensation because you have been injured in a trip or fall there has to be clear evidence that the cause of the fall was due to a lack of reasonable standards in maintenance, cleaning or repair.
No Win No Fee Claims
Claiming for compensation when you have been injured after a trip or fall either on a public footpath or in a shop, public place or building is rarely straightforward but that does not mean you are not entitled to compensation. As experienced personal injury solicitors we have the expertise to understand your case, your injury and your suffering and can advise if you have a claim just call us on 0800 1951001 for independent legal advice.
Who is responsible?
We all expect public highways and footpaths to be maintained and fit for public use. The courts, while agreeing in principle, have made it clear that this obligation is limited by the practicalities and costs of maintaining such a large network of roads and paths. We appreciate this but it does not make local authorities exempt from their responsibilities. Making a claim for a trip or a fall can be more complicated than other personal injury cases but these are the cases where we excel, we will fight hard to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
When making a claim for compensation after a trip or a fall there are a few things we will have to consider and we will ask you about these when we talk to you about your case. We have to take into consideration whether the accident was caused by a defect in the road or path rather than debris on the highway and if there is a defect on the road or path that is legally dangerous. The inspection and maintenance program of the relevant authority also has to be taken into consideration and if there have been any previous complaints about the defect to the relevant authority.
Our knowledge and experience in personal injury law can make all the difference in making and winning your case. Despite the severity or impact of your injuries the considerations above have a large part to play in winning your case and that is where our knowledge and experience in personal injury law can make all the difference in making and winning your case.
We can advise on what evidence will be needed and give you legal advice throughout the whole process. Call us today on 0800 1951001 to see if you can make a claim.
