Slip, Trip or Fall Accident Claims
Becoming a victim of a slip, trip or fall accident is an extremely common occurrence and most of us will end up suffering a slip, trip or fall accident at some period in our life.
In many of the instances when we slip or trip whilst out it is simply due to the fact that we weren't looking where we were going but for a lot of the times when a slip, trip or fall happens it is because of other factors such as an uneven pavement or a wet floor surface that wasn’t correctly signed, it is cases such as this when a duty of care has been breeched and your personal injury should have been avoided. If you have been injured in a slip or trip as a result of someone else·s negligence or because the surface you were walking on was unsafe, then you could have a claim for slip, trip or fall compensation.
When we suffer a slip, trip or fall our natural reaction is to get up as quickly as we can and walk away hoping that no one saw us. Yes it is embarrassing when you suffer an accident such as this but if you have been left with a personal injury you have a right to make a claim for compensation; so instead of simply walking away quickly you should remain at the accident sense to try and gather the following:
- Time, date and location of incident
- Photographic evidence of the scene and it is surroundings
- Photographic evidence of your injuries
- The names, addresses and contact numbers of any witnesses or victims that have been injured by the same defect
