Compensations give us the opportunity to recover the costs incurred in case of an accident. Dangerous events can take place anywhere. Escalators, as well as traditional stairs, are everywhere in the UK: in shopping malls, offices, schools, at the entrances to the Underground or at train stations. Obviously, the condition and safety of these are the responsibility of specific institutions, owners of the chain of galleries, etc. Unfortunately, there are some shortcomings in the technical condition as well as negligence on the part of the cleaning staff, which leads to stumbles, slips and falls down the stairs.
A fall down the stairs can be very dangerous and entail a number of severe injuries, such as: injuries of the spine, ankle, head, face, arms, legs, etc. A person may suffer a concussion, or break a leg. All these injuries result in long-term medical treatment and inability to work, and thus reduce a person’s earnings and add to their expenses. Visits to doctors, medication, physical therapy, all these generate considerable costs.
Remember, when the accident on the stairs was not your fault, you have a chance to obtain compensation for all material losses as a consequence. You need to prove negligence, such as poorly protected stairs, wet floor, non-stable barrier, etc. Gather the witness testimonies, take a picture of the stairs, complete all medical documents, from which it is clear what injuries you have suffered. It will be useful to have bills for medical services and rehabilitation.
