Trip and Slip Claims

Slips and trips are one of the most common accidents and are usually caused by something simple such as a cracked or raised paving slab or wet floor.

Accidents involving slips and trips can be perceived as trivial and an example of the ‘compensation culture’, but we recognise that they can involve serious injury and have a significant impact on the lives of victims.

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer a slipping or tripping accident, whether in a public or private place, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Have you:

•    Slipped over on something left carelessly on the floor in a public or work place?

•    Slipped or tripped in a supermarket or store?

•    Injured yourself on a slippery or wet floor that was not signposted?

•    Tripped on a pavement that was uneven or broken?

Public and private organisations have a duty of care to ensure visitors are safe on their premises and Local Authorities are also under a duty to ensure that pavements and public highways are in safe condition for public use.

Examples of tripping and slipping claims we have successfully dealt with include:

•    Injuries caused by slipping or tripping on defective pavement

•    Injuries caused by slipping on wet floors in supermarkets etc.

•    Injuries suffered in playgrounds and sports centres

•    Claims by council tenants for ill health caused by housing disrepair and defective premises

•    Injuries to road users caused by potholes

If you have been injured due to a slip or trip, contact us now and we will provide a free initial assessment to establish if you have a claim. Your claim will be pursued on a “no win no fee” basis. There are no legal costs to you whether you win or lose.
