Slips, trips and falls are quite common in public places and work places. They can prove to be fatal and they can also lead to head injuries, back injuries, fractures and in the worst cases, paralyses. Trip accident can occur mostly at those places where the surface is still wet or is a slippery surface. If it has occurred at your work place then the company is legally liable for any accidents that occur as a result of not applying needful safety procedures. If it is outside, then slipping on the pavement because of weather conditions can also cause serious injuries.
Let me tell you that if you have been injured at you work place then making a claim may be tricky as the council might not held directly responsible for the accident. If the same thing happens in a parking bay of a shopping mall, a hospital or a school, the slip, trip and falls claim can be made against the said premises.
The amount of compensation will be totally depending on your own unique injuries and accident. The attorney will also take in account if you need a sick leave due to your slip accident, what accident you have incurred as a direct result of the injury that may include home, vehicle adaptions and other several factors. When calculating the claim, all these elements will be factored.
Evidence is needed for a strong accident claim case. There are people that will try to play the system. Your lawyer needs to prove that the other party was legally responsible for the accident and that your injuries resulted from that accident. If you are not certain whom to blame for the accident, you may still be able to make a claim.
