Slips, trips and falls are one of the most common types of accident claims which our clients ask us to help them recover compensation for.
These kinds of accidents can occur in many places such as:
If you have an accident in a place such as this, you may well have a claim because the Council, business owners and landlords all owe a duty of care to visitors who may slip, trip or fall in these places. Accidents may occur by slipping on some grapes on the supermarket floor, slipping on spilt water in a shop, falling down an exposed manhole in a train station or tripping on an uneven paving slab.
We believe that one of the main reasons people claim following an accident like this is because these accidents often cause serious injuries such as broken bones and nasty soft tissue injuries which initially often present themselves with swelling such as a swollen ankle.
Due to the injuries these accidents often cause, it leaves the injured person unable to return to work for some time and/or require a lot of assistance around the house, which is not only a source of great frustration but can cause serious financial hardship.
At Aequitas Legal, we understand the distress this causes and is the reason why our Solicitors are all very skilled in understanding and assessing the extent of your losses to enable you the best chance of maximising the recovery of these.
