Our slip, trip and fall solicitors deal with claims under No Win, No Fee basis. We will talk to you about the funding of a claim and discuss your options before we take on your case. At this stage, we can also talk to you about insurance to cover you for any unforeseen costs.
The simplest distinction between slip and trip claims is that:
Both slips and trips lead to falls, which are where injuries can occur.
You may be able to claim for slip, trip and fall accidents where it can be shown that you have been injured and it is someone else’s fault.
For example, if you slipped over due to a wet floor surface, and there were no signs to indicate that the floor was wet, you may be able to make a claim as there was not sufficient warning that there was a hazard.
Another example may be where you have tripped over an uneven surface which has not been properly maintained.
According to slip trip and fall legislation, you will typically have three years to bring forward a claim if you have been injured following a slip, trip or fall.
The three-year time limit is counted from the ‘date of knowledge’. This is when you were first aware that:
There are some exceptions to this general rule. These include where:
Knowing who was responsible for a slip, trip, or fall will depend on where the accident took place.
If you fell in a building with public access, the responsibility will fall with the building’s owners. This is the same for retail spaces, or restaurants.
If you fall in the street, perhaps due to ice, an uneven paving stone or a faulty staircase, the responsible party will usually be the council or local authority.
Avoidable slips, trips or falls at work will be the fault of the employer responsible for breaching their duty of care towards you.
There is no set amount of compensation for a slip trip and fall claim as it will depend on the individual circumstances of the case.
The personal injury claim process will take into consideration the severity of the injury, its impact on the injured person’s lifestyle and any economic impact it has had or could have, along with other factors.
Our experienced personal injury solicitors can review your case and provide you with an indication of the amount you may be entitled to.
If you decide to proceed with legal action, our lawyers have years of experience and will help you claim the maximum compensation available for your injuries.
