Slips, Trips and Falls Claims
Trips, slips and falls are amongst some of the most common causes of personal injury in the UK. It is very easily done, but some slips and falls can cause serious, life changing injuries. These can include anything from broken bones to more serious injuries such as head, brain or spinal injuries. The more serious injuries caused by a tripping accident can have a devastating effect on your life. Your injury could force you to give up your job, or leave you with limited mobility.

Trips, slips and falls compensation – can I claim?
The majority of trips, slips and falls compensation claims are normally due to accidents caused by defective pavements on a public highway, slips in shops and supermarkets, playground accidents or trips and falls on private property or in council houses and trips and slips in the workplace.
However, other tripping accidents that can happen on public property, private property or in the workplace are most commonly due to the following:
- Poorly maintained pavements
- Unmarked wet floors
- Oil spills
- Public playgrounds
- Snow and ice
Employers, local authorities and land owners should ensure that people are safe from harm whilst on their property. If they fail to do so, they may be liable to compensation claims from those who have been injured.
In the majority of cases, local authorities and landowners have a duty to inspect and maintain their land or property to a reasonable and safe standard and we would need to show that they had failed in their duty to regularly inspect and maintain the area.
Our tripping accident solicitors will establish whether the land owners have failed in their duty to keep the area safe and well maintained. It is important that you seek legal advice as soon after your accident as possible. We have been recovering compensation for trips, slips and falls for over 30 years.
