Falls in Public
Local authorities are supposed to make sure that roads and pavements are safe for pedestrians to walk on. They have a duty to put in place a system of inspection and maintenance which complies with the relevant code of practice. If you’ve had a fall because they’ve failed to do that, you can make a claim. We know the arguments local authorities put forward when disputing claims and we know how to deal with them.
Falls at Work
Everyone should be able to work without having to worry about having an accident such as a fall, no matter whether you work in an office or on a building site. Your employer has a legal responsibility to ensure that your working environment is safe and that you are not exposed to the risk of injury. If your employer has failed to make your workplace safe and you are injured as a result, you have the right to claim compensation. If you’ve had to take time off work because of your injuries, you can claim for any loss of earnings.
