Compensation claims for slips, trips and falls

If we’re lucky, a trip, slip or fall is just embarrassing. If we’re not, they 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.

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 any of these, you should 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 which stops you 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 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 for our personal injury claim clients. 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.

If your case isn’t successful you don’t pay a penny.

We promise that our clients will never come across any hidden costs when filing personal injury claims.

No-win, no-fee and legal expenses

Our no-win, no-fee solicitors in Manchester regularly assess the prospects of winning your case at all stages of your claim.

If we are able to offer you a Conditional Fee Agreement for your claim, you will not have to pay our legal costs, however, if you lose your claim you may have to pay your opponent’s legal costs.

Legal expenses insurance, which is often provided with some motor insurance policies, can be used to pay your opponent’s legal fees. To protect you, we take out a legal expenses insurance policy for you when taking on your no-win, no-fee claim, if you do not already have a policy.

Disbursements for legal costs

If you win, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs and disbursements.

Any legal costs which are not paid by your opponent may be deducted from your compensation. However, you will not pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful and not until it has come to the end.

I first contacted AWH in december and booked my consulation with Shayeda. I didn’t wait long for an appointment and was given very professional advice and the appointment was thorough. Shayeda brought me the print outs and showed me everything I needed for my application. Both Shayeda and Cathryn were very helpful throughout my application. I received a very professional service from AWH and they have alot of knowledge & would recommend them for your immigration matters.
