People who have suffered an injury as a result of slipping or falling can make a claim. These accidents are usually inevitable and often occur in many places such as the house, the streets etc. These accidents are one of the popular types of accidents that many people experience on a daily basis and may occur when you are walking on the road or the pavement. A simple fall or slip can cause someone to have a serious injury such as paralysis or someone may even go to an extent of breaking a bone. It may also cause someone to have head injuries or back injuries which are usually serious and may cause someone to be hospitalized for a long time.
Some of these accidents may also occur when you are working. These accidents usually occur at the work place due to poor or inadequate safety regulations or poor health. When such injuries occur, an injury claim specialist may assist you to make a slip and fall accident compensation claim. These types of accidents usually happen in public areas where there is spilled water, oil or any other liquid. They also happen in areas where there is a slippery surface that may cause a person to slide and fall resulting to an injury. Some of the injuries may also happen on ice or snow which is also very slippery. Someone who has suffered an injury on a slippery surface can make a slip and fall accident compensation claim. If someone’s claim was as a result of a broken pavement in a public area, the council of that area will have to cover the compensation via public liability insurance.
