We all walk out on the public road daily, visit local supermarkets and shopping centres and not expect anything to happen. However, a slip, trip or fall is never out of the question whilst being in any of these places. You would be surprised to hear a large number of clients claiming for personal injury do so after suffering from a slip, trip or fall.
This is one of the most common types of accidents that cause injuries. Whilst these accidents occur in a huge variety of circumstances, if the accident has happened as a result of someone else’s fault then you can make a claim to compensate you for your injuries.
An unfortunate fall can happen in any situation. You could be walking normally on a public road where there may be a raised pavement or tile and you, unfortunately, catch your foot resulting in a painful fall.
