If you slip, trip or fall over something due to someone’s negligence then you could be entitled to claim compensation. If the accident was preventable by someone responsible taking reasonable precautions and they have failed to do so, then they can be liable for your accident and subsequent injuries.
If, however, you trip over something which is ordinarily there, such as a curb, then you could struggle to prove someone else is to blame. Similarly, if you slip on a wet floor where signs are clearly displayed warning you the floor is wet, then it is your responsibility to heed these warnings. The best way to know for sure if you can claim compensation is to contact HNK and arrange a free no-obligation consultation to discuss the details of your accident. We will be able to provide you with more detailed information on pursuing a claim and who is liable for your accident.
