Slips and Trips Compensation Solicitors Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth and Dundee
If you have suffered an injury as a result of a slip or trip in a public place, our lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Public footpaths, roads, car parks and even paths leading to properties can be treacherous if these have not been appropriately cared for. This can lead to people slipping and sustaining injuries ranging from minor bumps and bruises to broken or fractured limbs. Sometimes these incidents will be an accident, with no one at fault. However, there can be occasions where measures could have been taken to reduce the risk of injury to members of the public, and these practices were not in place at the time. In these circumstances, it may be possible to make a claim for compensation.
Our lawyers at Calio Claims have years of experience in helping people make claims following an accident, even where it is difficult to pinpoint who is at fault. We can ensure you are adequately compensated for all of the ways in which you have suffered loss. To discuss your specific circumstances with someone who can help, call us today on 0800 988 8082 or complete our online enquiry form and a member of our team will get back to you right away.
If you have suffered an injury that was as a result of another person’s negligence, you could bring a claim against them for compensation. For example, if there was ice on the ground that should have been cleared, for which see our Case Study: "£7,500 settlement for our client who suffered Serious Personal Injury after Slipping on Ice". Generally, third parties that could be held at fault in these cases can include local authorities, landlords, retailers and housing associations.
If you have suffered an injury in a public place, or public property, you should ensure that the accident is reported to the correct body and is accurately recorded.
You should also try and retain photographs of the area where the incident occurred, and photographs of what exactly caused your injury. You should also keep a note of names and contact details of any witnesses to your accident.
As well as seeking compensation for the pain and suffering, we are able to seek to recover loss of earnings, cost of any care or support required and any out of pocket expenses you have incurred.
