Compensation Claims for Slips, Trips and Falls

If we’re lucky, a trip, slip or fall is just embarrassing. If we’re not, it can cause serious or even life-threatening injuries. If this happens and someone else’s negligence was to blame, our expert team can assist you with your compensation claim.

You may not be sure who is responsible for your accident, but that doesn’t matter. We can assess if you can make a claim during an initial free consultation.

Whether your accident was in a public place, a private place or at work, we can help. Get in touch today and find out if you are owed compensation for your slip, trip or fall. 

Claiming Compensation for a Slip, Trip or Fall

Don’t Miss Out

Many seriously injured people never end up getting the compensation they deserve. This is either because they don’t know they have the right to claim after an accident, or because they don’t think they can afford the solicitor’s fees.

Our team of friendly, experienced personal injury solicitors work on a no-win, no fee basis. If you have had a slip, trip, or fall, get in touch, and get the compensation you deserve.

What Kind of Slip, Trip or Fall Can You Claim For?

Slips, trips and falls can occur in all kinds of ways, but some are more common than others. Some of the most common claims happen as a result of:

  • Tripping on uneven paving slabs
  • Falling from faulty equipment or machinery, such as ladders or scaffolding
  • Tripping over ill-fitting carpets
  • Slipping on icy surfaces that haven’t been properly gritted
  • Slipping on wet or icy surfaces without warning signs
  • Tripping over mismanaged hazards such as boxes or wires

If you’ve been seriously injured as a result of a slip, trip or fall, may this have been at work, in a public place or a private place,  you may be entitled to compensation.

What Compensation Covers

Slips and trips come with their own corresponding set of injuries. For example, you may have a badly sprained ankle that stops you from getting about as normal. Or you may have a series of fractures requiring months of rehab and physiotherapy.

In a worst-case scenario, you may suffer a serious head injury and need life-saving surgeries.

How Compensation is Calculated

Compensation for a slip, trip or fall is not only calculated by looking at your physical injuries. To see that you are compensated fairly, other factors are also reviewed, such as:

  • Loss of earnings, if you have to take time off work
  • Cost of care
  • Damage to your property – for example your clothing or if belongings in a bag are damaged when you fall
  • Emotional trauma
  • Travel costs
  • Cost of adaptions to your home or car

We have extensive experience winning compensation with trips, slips and fall claims. If you want to know more about how the process works or the amount of compensation you could be entitled to, just give us a call.
