An accidental fall can be the result of a workplace incident, a slip in a restaurant or bar, or possibly when you are out walking on a footpath. When one of these occurrences happens, you can consider claiming compensation for falling. Remember, your health always comes first, and as the nature of a fall can sometimes lead to lifelong health issues, it is important that you seek medical advice as soon as possible.
When you have suffered a fall, compensation is due to you when it can be shown that the fall was not entirely your fault. Claiming compensation for falling can be a straightforward process but, because of the potential for head and spinal injuries, it is far better for you to consult with a solicitor who has experience in claiming fall compensation than try to pursue the matter yourself or accept an offer of early settlement from the negligent party or their insurance company.
Claiming Compensation for Falling
Indeed, it is because of the risk of ongoing health concerns that insurance companies are keen to clear their liability at an early stage. By taking advantage of the services offered by a specialist personal injury claims solicitor, you will receive a fair and adequate amount of compensation for falling and avoid the further psychological trauma of having insufficient funds to cover future medical costs or support your family should you no longer be able to work.

What Else You Should Know:-
Compensation for falling can be a straightforward case or long-winded depending on the nature of your injuries. Although our solicitors are excellent in what they do, they cannot assess the full extent of your injuries over the phone and may need access to your medical records.
Because of the potential for long term health concerns, we may not be able to give you an accurate figure relating to the level of compensation that you may receive. Our solicitors may be able to give you a general guide to help you assess if the claim is worth your while to pursue.
If there is any doubt about the liability for your fall, compensation claims may have to go through a court as the Injuries Board will only deal with cases where the negligent party admits responsibility.
