Claim for Slipping on Wet Floor in Mcdonalds

I wanted to pursue a claim for slipping on wet floor in McDonalds but their insurance company has just offered me compensation of £12,000. I sustained a fractured wrist from the incident, is that a fair amount for this type of injury? I would rather not have to go through the hassle of pursuing a claim.

I cannot advise you on whether or not you should pursue your claim for slipping on wet floor in McDonalds due to the fact that there is no possible way to determine whether the amount that the insurance company has offered you can be deemed as “fair”, without first knowing the nature and extent of your injury, in addition to the impact it has had on your quality of life. However, you should contact a personal injury claims solicitor as soon as possible to discuss this compensation offer with them. They will be able to assess the offer in relation to the specific details and circumstances of the fractured wrist you sustained in McDonalds.

That said, the figure of £12000 is quite high, which could mean that you have sustained quite a serious wrist fracture. Insurance companies usually make unsolicited offers of compensation very soon after an accident injury occurs, probably because the victim may be disoriented and more likely to accept any proposal of an offer for the sake of having an instant settlement, thus saving the insurance companies money in the long-term. Their offer of claim for slipping on wet floor in McDonalds could very likely end up being wholly inadequate for covering the injury you have suffered. Because they often make an offer so soon after the incident, it is unlikely that they will have had time to completely assess your injury and the potential affects it could have on your life. If you do accept an offer of compensation that is ultimately insufficient, you will not be able to return to the insurance company and ask for more. It would be unwise to proceed any further without obtaining legal advice.

Pursuing a claim shouldn’t be a hassle if you seek the services of a legal professional. The fact that the negligent party’s insurance company has approached you means that there is an acknowledgement of liability, which is a good sign for you in initiating a claim. If you have a strong enough potential claim, a solicitor may offer to assist you legally on a “no win, no fee” agreement. This means that you will not have to worry about any legal fees should your claim be unsuccessful. You may be liable for the defendant’s legal fees if your claim does not succeed, but taking out an insurance policy beforehand will help you financially if there is such an outcome. Therefore it is recommended that you consult a solicitor about your claim for slipping on wet floor in McDonalds as soon as you can.
