Slip, Trip or Fall
What If There Was No Sign on a Slippery Floor?
Millions of people every day trip, slip or fall and, most of the time the thing most badly damaged is their ego. Of course, you can't claim for a little bit of embarrassment, but you can, and should, claim if you suffer a fall which has long term repercussions, and you feel that you fell through no fault of your own. A slip, trip or fall could lead to:
- Severe bruising.
- Broken bones.
- Time spent off work.
- Serious skull or spinal injuries.
In the event of any of these occurring, and the fall in question being caused by the negligence of someone else, then you have every right to pursue an accident claim. Whilst the money won't make up totally for your pain and suffering it will provide recompense for any expenses arising as a result of your fall, such as medical bills, prescription charges, wages lost through days off work and anything else which you wouldn't otherwise have had to pay for were it not for your fall.
Falls can be caused by many things and take place in many different places. The simple fact is that if you fall in either your work place, or a public place such as a supermarket or train station, then somebody else has failed in their duty to maintain the safety of the area through which you were moving. A freshly mopped floor, for instance, can be incredibly slippy, and that's why any such floor should have a 'wet floor' sign upon it. If this sign wasn't present, and you slip on the wet floor, resulting in pain or injury, then you have the makings of a compensation claim.
