Types of claim
You would have thought after all these years that we would have stamped out most tripping accidents, RTA's and work accidents by now. There has been a massive reduction in total accidents. But for reasons beyond us at Injury Claims Surrey, this fantastic news is not championed in the press. As a result of the changes that have come about as a direct result of people making a personal injury claim this has prevented countless accidents and saved many lives. Yet instead we get moaning about compensation culture and health and safety ridiculed. Pain and negativity sell papers over good news.

Slip and Trip Accidents
These types of claim should be few or non-existent but sadly still make up a large proportion of claims. There are pavement trips. Supermarket accidents, other shop slips and other public area falls. These should be regularly checked and risk assessed. The council or owner should keep up to date records. They should have taken action in advance where necessary to rectify anything negative picked up on the regular inspections. Of course, a supermarket slip can be caused by leaking refrigerators or dropped/ spilt liquid. What matters here is that the supermarket has a regular system of inspection and record it.
